Just sent over by Sean Heart in NY, this L620 Savanna Beige ’67 Beetle is a fantastic example of a restoration done well. It also makes me really happy to know that we are slowly connecting ’67 Beetle owners all over the world.
Hello, 1967beetle.com. On July 12 ,2015, I participated in the Connecticut Volkswagen Association (CVA) 11th Annual Volks-Meet 2015 in West Brook, Connecticut which I am a member, ( I live in New York) and also a member of another Great Club the Long Island Volkswagen Club. (New York) I would like to mention what a nice turn out and what a hard working club. To make a long story short, I jumped on a Ferry out of Port Jefferson, NY on Saturday afternoon and landed in Connecticut. I then hopped on 95 North to a campsite recommended by the club. I set up camp and had a good night sleep. Then, I drove to the show site. VW time! I wiped the road dust off my 1967 VW Beetle and check out all the other cars and meet with fine New Englander’s and had great conversations and seen some beautiful cars..
Well, to much of my surprise when they were announcing the awards. I won Best in Class for VW Beetle 1953 to 1967. YAHOO!! My 1967 Savannenbeige L620 was the Big Winner !! Well, thanks to Dave out in Oregon who restored the car, and for the parts that I have purchased from Lane Russell. I must admit the car is a real head turner in this neck of the woods. I am looking forward to showing it off this summer at shows and can’t wait for Chris Vallone to have his Fall ride through the Mountains of upstate New York
Nesconset, New York
