Art Beetle

Well, I finally got around to getting my vintage pride and joy painted. Ok, I’m kidding. We spotted this ’67 not too far from Jack London Square in Oakland, CA. I’ve never seen anything like it. While I’m not a fan of anything other than 100% correct stock, this ’67 is an interesting find. There’s something about these cars that just makes you want to smile. It even has wings and and bug-like antennas!

Talk about personality. What do you think?

Hello, I'm Eric. I started Air-Cooled Artifacts (previously, and Lane Russell). I drive a '67 Beetle daily and love to share vintage Volkswagen stories with the world.

  1. The wings were “One year only parts” for ’67 Bugs sold in San francisco.

    1. HA HA! I was waiting for someone to say that.. :)

  2. I think that paint code is L324 Lächerlich Blau

    1. Hey, it’s a ’67. I’d drive it! I LOVE THIS SITE.

      1. You guys… Sean over at The BuggyHouse said:

        “Hey that lady with the ’67 with the bug wings is a customer of mine. I have a picture somewhere of James test driving it. The wings are like chain driven. There’s a little motor in there and a switch on the dash to turn them on.”

        1. Cool! When you’re in gridlock, switch the wings on and fly home!

          1. That’s exactly what I would do!
