A Vintage Volkswagen Wedding

A Vintage Volkswagen WeddingLet’s be honest, I really don’t let anyone drive our ’67 Beetle. If you also own one of these gems, you understand my VW sickness. However, when our great friends Mike and Paula asked if it could be a part of their wedding, I felt very honored. And, what better a way to compliment a beautiful bride than a ’67 Beetle. Congrats again, guys!

    1. Thanks, Dad! Amanda and I were really honored to let them use our ’67. They were our close friends in The Bay Area.

    This happened to me this summer. Not only I am a long term owner of a ’67 Type 1, but a thankful owner of a ’67 Type 2 twenty one window bus. I was asked to ferry around a young couple, not related to me, for their wedding day. I was happy to do it and actually spent a weekend cleaning every square cm of that Bus. Places I havent cleaned since 1971. It looked fabulous. And the newly weds couldnt have been happier. Two people whose parents were not even born about the time I bought the Bus. So someone tell me what was their attraction?

    1. Hello, Todd…I think that people like to/want to connect! Vintage Volkswagens give people something with which to connect–something that harks to an earlier time, yet something which was and still is very real. Any Volkswagen generates lots of conversation. Almost everyone has a VW Story. We who own these Vintage Babies are perpetuating this reality! Good stories, Eric and Todd! Thanks for the telling. jay

        You are right Jay, I and my wife drove my Beetle to Denver a few years ago…from Portland Oregon, and back. At every gas stop, rest area, national park, view site, restaurant, about everywhere, people came up to us and wanted to tell their story of VW’s they once owned. Not just a few, many! One guy in Reno practically flagged us down because he really wanted to talk about his old VW…back in the day. Even a German guy who rented a big motorcycle traveling through our national parks hung with us for a few stops. Adds a whole additional perspective of travel.

  3. Your fotos are inspired!! So sweet of the couple and so symbolic of their trust. Just look at them. They have every confidence that this precious classic antique, that has served generations, will take them to their desired destination!!! Made my heart swell!

    My chariot to my wedding 50 years ago was a VW Beetle. ~~neva

  4. That first photo is simply outstanding. Beautiful.

    Someday they’ll show these pictures to their kids and say, “A ’67 Beetle can carry anything. Look, we were able to carry a palm tree in the suitcase up on the roof rack.”

  5. I’d bet one day that couple will own a VW, hopefully. 67.
    Thanks for sharing, Eric. Best wishes to the newly weds!

  6. Eric – thanks again for the very generous loan. I think the photos here are our favorite set from the whole day.
