Marius L282 Lotus White ’67 Beetle Birth Certificate

I just got my Volkswagen Birth Certificate in the mail for Felix the Beetle. I always knew based on his VIN number that he was “born” in January of ’67, so there was a 1 in 31 chance of Felix sharing my birthday.

The birth certificate arrived today, and page one confirmed something I knew already: the engine case isn’t original to the car. However, page two confirms it! Felix and I share a birthday – he’s exactly 12 years older than I am – as Eric mentioned in a text message response to me, it was meant to be. :)

I’ll take sharing a birthdate over original engine case.
