Little more expensive with some stuff but really liked the guys workin there and it was only like a 20min drive from my. Most of the bug shops had closed up or moved out of area.

EDIT: ahh gotcha... yea its just a diff bolt pattern. Prolly just changed it up over the years?
hmm that may be my place to go...

I'm a big time veedub snob, so I will withhold my comments regarding the super beetle pictures posted, as a true bug was "built before '64". Being that you put TLC in, and that you seem to love veedubs, I forgive you and definitely urge you to pursue finding a 50's or early 60's bug. I always wanted a ghia too, but I could never take one over a bug, it had to be both, or a bug only.

No garage at our apartment, and it's hard enough having one reserved covered space, and having to find a guest/public space for our Lexus. I'll buy another classic project car when we have a house with a garage for me to store one.

Probably do, but I'm too lazy to bother looking for them. Maybe some day I'll come across one and put it up. I don't even post pics of my subie online, so don't feel bad.
