Richard Marcoux’s 50th Wedding Anniversary


Reader and owner of two unrestored 1967 Beetles, Richard Marcoux, decided that he and his wife, Donna, would renew their Wedding Vows. Accordingly, they advised family and friends of their 50th Anniversary plans.

But, that’s not all! Richard decided that they could not leave out their “Family Volkswagen Beetles”!

Richard is known to us through Articles on 1967beetle.com. See these for reference

Following the Vow Renewal Ceremony, Richard and Donna drove away in their 1967 Beetle Convertible. How appropriate that their Beetle had turned 50 years old not long before the Marcouxs celebrated their own 50th Anniversary.

Richard said:

“This picture (was taken) just after we renewed our vows and were pulling out. It had rained on and off all morning, but when it was time, the sky cleared and the sun came out.”

Congratulations Donna and Richard—and Many Happy Returns of The Day! And may
your Convertible continue to faithfully carry you along life’s journey.

My wife, Neva, and I have been driving and working on VWs for over 41 years. In fact, we raised our family in these cars. Now, we are retired and enjoy VWs as a hobby. The ’67 Beetle always has been our favorite year. We own a '67 Beetle and a '68 Karmann Ghia.

    Well done Richard and Donna ! Fifty years of marriage and driving a 50 year old Beetle, plus it looks like Richard still has his hair. I’m totally impressed.

    1. Mike,
      The BIG question the world wants to know is…. Are you considering another ’67 Beetle?
