The Finishing Touches for Your Vintage Volkswagen™

Posted by Eric Shoemaker

Hello, I'm Eric. I started 1967beetle.com. I also own Lane Russell, a leading supplier of VW parts for your classic Volkswagen restoration. I drive a '67 Beetle daily and love to share vintage Volkswagen stories with the world.

  1. Thank you for 1967Beetle Eric! My project would still be in pieces if not for all your help and advice.


  2. If it weren’t for 1967beetle.com I’d never have gotten my bug to where it is so thank you too!! I got the correct 1967 window cranks installed and my new correct 67 VW rear seat belts for Christmas thanks to you and your website and all of your inputs for places to get parts. I look forward to the coming year and corresponding with you and having you solve my many questions I have about my bug. I still think you need to move back to this side of the country so we could v-dub around some.


  3. I look forward to the emails and site updates. You’re a huge resource for us Eric!


  4. Awesome – it’s been a good year for us and our beetle thanks to you, Eric. Also, did you see: http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/lanow/2012/12/dmv-takes-orders-for-retro-license-plates.html


    1. Very welcome! This is an interesting read. I’ve heard about it from the DMV, but did not know it was really going to happen.


  5. One of my vintage parts customers (Beth Leverman) told me about 1967Beetle.com. I immediately signed onto the site. I tell everyone–yes, I literally “bug” them into signing up. There is a mystique to ’67 Beetles that seems not to exist for other years. Eric…you took the ball and ran with it! Good for you. It is a large under-taking and we all appreciate your efforts on our behalf! May 2013 be even better. jay salser


    1. Thanks Jay! You’ve helped 1967beetle.com grow as well. Looking fwd to 2013.


  6. Thank you Eric, your site reignited my love for air cooled vws, especially the 67 beetles.
