The Correct ’67 Beetle Wiper Blades

blades
Not long ago I was with some others who have the “VW Habit”. We got to discussing the color of wiper blade holders. The ones on my ’67 were black—not kosher, you might say. One of the group spoke up and, with a sarcastic nudge, directed us to his car with silver wiper blade holders.

“What?” I gasped. “Where did you find those?”

After we had examined the blade holders sufficiently long, our friend finally confessed that he had managed to paint them to the correct color by masking the rubber blade. He did a great job of it!

A person, whose name I shall not breathe, but whose initials are Eric Shoemaker, kept on my case about my non-conforming wiper blades.

Finally, I gave in and Lane Russell provided me with the correct wiper blades.

In the cool of this morning, I installed my new, correct wiper blades. Don’t they look good?

My wife, Neva, and I have been driving and working on VWs for over 41 years. In fact, we raised our family in these cars. Now, we are retired and enjoy VWs as a hobby. The ’67 Beetle always has been our favorite year. We own a ’67 Beetle and a ’68 Karmann Ghia.

That person unnamed, Eric Shoemaker, is a pesky one when it comes to OG. Just ask him to comment on my bumpers. LOL
