Looks like my Daddy's volkswagon that we girls learned to drive in and drove the poor thing to death! :D

We called em "Slug Bugs" :D

My first car was a 1966 Volks Hippie van.

Learned how to drive in Mom's "64" Beetle
and my sister had a "65" Beetle and a "69" Karman Ghia convertable.

simply put loved my 65 - 66 Kombi to death... all round Aus 3 times and died in the Alice bought anothery bit newer 74 or so and kept that going till it to finally ended itself on a farm down south... bought a 70s model Mantra beach buggy thing and that as far as I know is still hot footing it up in Halls Creek somewhere! and wish the eck Id kept the thing far more reliable than any Ive had since... great vehicles run on a smell of an oily can slow as anything and noisy as buggary but for doged determination to just get there only thing better is an old Landrover

Ja ver Goot Vehikelens... {sorry to do that Martin but needed the accent :rolleyes: }

Mr. KIA, a '66 VW bus was my first, also. I bought it from a fellow living up in the Sierra foothills - he had a yard full of various VWs he was rebuilding to sell. He rode along on the test drive - sitting in the rear seat, he sparked a j as we drove along...

Later, I sold the '66 bus to a sign painter and bought a '67 squareback.

I like(ed) my last two cars a lot more - saabs.
