Sounds like that was a fun bug! Stories like that make you wish you could keep them all.


We've had three bugs over the years; '63, '67 and '69.  In the old days, a swing axle car made the best drag racer as it was lighter and had a
shorter ring and pinion then the '69 and later models (4:37or 4:12, to a 3:88).  Late models made great drivers and responded well to suspension
modifications.  We bought our '69 from Don Burns VW in Garden Grove when I got out of the service and owned it until December of '92 when
two drunks piled into the back of it one night in front of the house in a dually.  We drove the wheels off it! :)  Here's a couple of out and abouts...
I've been down that hill in the last pic.
What was once fun, Now feels like just another job.
