I fell in love with the New Beetle when pictures of it came out 15 years ago. This month I was finally able to buy one. A 2002 model of course, but I love it. I have owned several VW's; Air cooled and Water cooled, and there are several little things in the new beetle that remind me of the old one, and the New Beetle definitely captures the spirit of the old one. I look forward to getting to know people on this forum. See you around.
