    Sorry guys. Kept forgetting to get some pictures uploaded. Here are some pictures of my bug. These were taken at today's car show.

    Re: New from Ohio

    thanks. I have had it for almost 2 years now. I bought it mainly due to the rag top. It was the last year they made it before they switched over to the hard sliding moon roof. I wanted one that had no rust, and body needed no painting. (let someone else deal with that ). I rebuilt the engine, and replaced the mechanical parts all the way around the car (brakes, lines, etc). Mechanical parts I can deal with. But the auto body stuff, NO THANKS. Too much money to do it myself.

    I'm proud of this car, even though I didn't do the majority of the work. I don't drive it in the rain, or snow. I'll drive it in the winter as long as there is no salt on the roads. I certainly baby it. Never break 55 mph either, UNLESS, I'm going down hill.

    Griot's garage detailing accessories are my best friend on show day

    Welcome to the club. I'm in NW Columbus but make it down to Dayton Cars and Coffee a couple times per year.

    ya, I've heard about that before.
    I don't take mine any more than 30 miles from the house. Would it make it? Possibly, but I don't push it.
    There's a VW/Porsche/Audi car show tomorrow at Germania Society in Hamilton. I'll be going to that. That pulls a lot of VW's out of the woodwork. Busses, Things, Beetles, etc. Pretty cool

    It's not a standard solid color.
    It's like a burnt orange.
    One of my favorite colors.
