This is Laurie. I bought my bug from her 25 years ago. I saw her at a concert recently and took a pic. First thing she said was 'You changed the gear shift knob!'

lol! Wow! That's crazy! How'd you even recognize her? And how did she remember the gear shift knob? I imagine everything else is the same...?

That is remarkable that you recognized her.

She lives in the Sacramento area. She was looking at me sort of funny, and I thought I recognized her. She approached me and asked if that was my VW outside. I said 'Yeah, is it on fire?' She said no, she sold it to me. Then I remembered her.
Not much in the way of changes---I put throw-outs in it, new interior, and the shift knob, but all else is just the usual mechanical stuff. I told her she took good care of the car and I felt real lucky to have it.

That's a nice story. I'm sure she now knows what a good home it went to.
