Submitted by a reader and customer of 1967beetle.com, Stephan Ruiz. (His car is featured in the film) This is probably one of the most beautiful shorts I’ve seen in a long time about the ’67 Beetle. It makes me proud knowing that there are so many great ’67 Beetles still out on the road. 1967beetle.com will continue to find them and showcase their unique stories.
Ubiquitous. This is the best word to describe the Volkswagen Beetle, which had over 21 million vehicles churned out during a 75-year production. Yet even with so many cars produced, one would still be hard pressed to find two Beetles customized in the same way. Maybe it is the idea of endless customization possibilities that endears so many to the Beetle, or perhaps it is that behind these cars there are no two owners alike. With every Beetle bought and sold comes a Volkswagen story.
After many mishaps involving stolen, burned, and wrecked Beetles, Stephan Ruiz has finally found his personal Beetle. Clean is the best word to describe this one-year-only 1967 Beetle, and Stephan wants to keep it that way.
Sometimes we change a car, and sometimes we find the car changes us.
