Mary & Gavin’s story is an emotional one with a fantastic connection to the past. Seeing the early childhood photos reminds me of my own story, and how I grew up riding in my Grandpa’s ’67 Beetle that I now own today. Thanks for sharing, guys! 1967beetle.com exist because of people like you.

Northwestern Michigan College Car Show – 10th annual. A charity event with all proceeds going to the school of automobiles at NMC.

Well Gentlemen, we broke thru today! She won her first trophy at the Northwestern Michigan College Car Show. Voted top 25 of 200 cars by participants and patrons…not judges!

Thank you! Without the vision of my wife Mary, I don't think this would have happened... It was she who saw the vision with the roof rack and bambus tray from Lane Russell and her mission to acquire period correct picnic baskets, wine bottles, cake tins and vintage books that makes our display really pop!
