Phillip Hager’s ’67 Beetle

Sent over by reader of 1967beetle.com, Phillip Hager. I love hearing stories like this, and am sure you’ll enjoy as well. What are the chances?!

Hey,1967beetle.com. I went to show today in San Francisco, CA. I could not believe my eyes! Parked next to me was another ’67, and the license plate numbers were one number off from mine.

My Black Plate is UJX 092. My Early '67 was sold new from Masterson Motors in Ventura, California in February 1967.

California DMV took away my black plates since the car was a recovered theft vehicle I bought.

In 1988 both my sister and I bought two new VW Foxes, both silver identical cars, and when licensed, the Oregon plates were just one digit different. Hers is in Alaska now probably never to come back to Oregon, mine was sold maybe ten years ago, so I wonder if they will ever park together someday. I highly doubt it. They are not destined to be collectors cars, I'm sure. My sisters Fox has over 300k on the clock, without a rebuild.
