Greetings all. I got tagged last Saturday by 02SilverSport who had parked behind me at the local grocery store (nice car!), so I checked out the site and joined. Anyway, here’s my NB story (short version) ... my first car was a 1960 Beetle (36hp) and my second car was a 1966 Beetle (40hp). I’ve been through many, many cars since then but never another VW until this past March 1 when I bought a 1999 New Beetle 2.0 GLS 5 speed. The cyber green machine had 94k and was in need of some love (lots of little things wrong with it but it runs great).

Finally, after many, many years I’m back in a Beetle and loving it. The best part is that when I drive it in L.O.L. mode (LOL = Little Old Lady - no disrespect intended), I get 30+ mpg combined. But it’s hard to drive it that way ‘cause I keep looking for fast, curvy roads to gear through ... it’s a quandry.

I haven’t named the car yet, still trying to figure out if it’s a he or a she and what his/her personality is. I like “Fang” but my eldest sister suggested “Butter bean.” Ugh, not in this life.

Welcome to the site and I'm glad to know who it was I tagged. We'll have to grab coffee and exchange car memories. You've got a great looking CyberGreen NB. And yes Butter bean isn't quite fitting.

Again Welcome!
