RE: vwdeluxe * 1973 Super Beetle Convertible

Hi,

:) I Just Had To Post and say, What a Sharp Beetle, I Just love it, that is a dream car of mine, maybe someday I Will Have one? I Learned how to drive in an old school beetle, first time I drove one I was 12.

I Love my New Beetle, and can't stop driving it, just looking for a reason to go in it.

Thanks for showing us your car.

John K.

Thanks for all the kind words, gang! Recently, I had the number plate changed from NSEKT, to INSECT. But people still ask me what it means, LOL.

I really miss the ORG and my New Beetle groupies! Luckily, the MINI owners are just as crazy!

We miss you too, Steve. :(

I just want to add, I have never seen an air-cooled Beetle in that color. Is it stock?

thanks! I do miss it here ... if the 2.0T motor makes it way into the NBC, I may be back in the family when my MINI lease ends.

The grey color is not a stock color for '73, but was rare in 1958. Shephard Grey Metallic. It really turns heads, but is starting to show age ... I have to decide what to do about that this Spring!

Happy holidays, all!!!
