My car would say THANKS it was in lonely, sitting in a field watching dirt bikes go round and round the track. Wondering what I did to the guy who took me apart, all apart. Body one place, pan another front beam in pump house transaxle under the bush. Why he saved only a portion of my parts. And the next guy who thought I was a trophy car even if I was in a million pieces. And now after a year of dedicated service my picture keeps showing up on those damn Honda Forums with - Trade for Honda Hatch- I guess I just cannot get a break.

I know more or less the whole story of my 74 Super Beetle.

Shorter version:

Originally sold in Indiana in December 1973

minimally driven until it moved to arizona in the early 90s, was sold. The new owners drove it minimally as well, and bought every stainless steel body trim you could get (door visors, ding guards, sill plates, etc)

Sold to a mid 20s woman, in California, who had the motor rebuilt in 2002. But it did not pass smog, so it was parked until 2006, when

her new brother in law bought it, started fixing it up, and then,

in May 2008, I bought it, it bacame my new daily driver/racecar. And in the next couple years, it became probably the nicest it's been in the past 30 years. Won many races, a championship, car show. I recieved all new brakes and suspension, and was on its way to being painted the original Black. But then it got wrecked hard in the front.

Now it sits in the back, no motor or transmission, hoping it one day can be repaired to its former glory. Crying or Very sad

Now one of our members in good standing has a real nice Super. Graft a new front, cut at the A's. Lets do it on a tech day. So what if the front would be blue.

Just a thought.
