Submitted by a reader of 1967beetle.com, (photographer unknown) noting makes me happier than seeing a freshly restored L633 VW Blue ’67 Beetle. Errr, but wait.. Am I seeing this correctly? Only half the car has been brought back to its former glory.
This appears to be a CA VW show, so the car is most likely used as a capabilities showcase piece. (WCM?) Again, I do love the fresh paint. However, at the same time I have to look at the original patina and wonder about its past. Where did the car go? What things did it see. Patina has a way of capturing time. Which do you like better?
I say, the patina. It’s only original once.
