I notice in your sig you have a 73 Super Beetle. That makes me sad.
Two years ago I sold a MINT 65 Beetle, Awesome Sea Blue color, which I had owned for only two years. A real crowd-pleaser. Now I'm just kicking myself for selling! I bought it cheap-no rust and a perfect re-painted body, and sold it at a loss, having put about $3k into new motor, brakes, interior and suspension, all work I did myself.
Selling seemed like a logical thing to do at the time, but now I spend an unhealthy amount of time on ebaymotors, oldbug.com, and thesamba.com looking for a replacement, which of course I cannot really afford at this time. Oh well, maybe one day.
