How did you get into Volkswagens?? tell us where it started for you!


For me it started when I was About 12-13 my dad had a shop in Ft.lauderdale next door to Corks Foreign Car Repair, and all cork worked on was old VW's thats how I first started to know About them, then When I was about 15 my dad had a freind give us a 72 square back (man I wish I still had it) the motor was blown so I really never got to go to far in it but That was my first car then I really didnt get my hands on another one till recently but Ive got the fever!!!!!

My cousin got me into it. He had two of them before I started to drive and we went everywhere with them. I was hooked. Then when I got my license, my father bought me a '76 standard bug. It turned out to be too much rust repair for me, so I sold it a year later. It has been down hill from there. Laughing

Anywho, I don't think I will ever be able to walk away from these great VeeDubs and the people that own them. VeeDubbin' till I die! Cool

My older sister had one when I was about eight. I only rode in it once or twice. It got sold before too long. Then, when I was about 12 a neighbor gave my older brother a green 68-70? without an engine. I used to sit in it and pretend it was mine. My brother sold it to a guy that had a few VWs. Fast forward to the mid-80s. I saw Ed Papac's tilt-bodied Porsche-6 powered "baja" bug on the cover of Hot VWs at a convenience store. I was hooked. I loved cars like that one and the Pink Lady. I bought a 68 bug out of a field for $100. The engine had burned and it was rusty. I never got it on the road but have had many, many VWs since. Here's a few that I have pics of on the computer or online.
