Anyone own an old VW?

I have wanted an old classic car for a long time. Don't really want anything too expensive sitting around, and have always liked the old bugs. What do you think of this one?



I usually have an extra play car of some sort around. Currently, I have this. Its a 1971 M35A2. I would get rid of this for the bug. Not sure I really want to get rid of it though.

Yeah, I don't know much about the bugs, but I know they are easy to work on and there are alot of parts available. I couldn't believe how cheap a new engine was for one of these!

They are asking $5,900.00 for this one.

My only concern is overheating being that it is air cooled. But it would probably just sit during the hot summers anyway.

My buddy has 3 VWs at his house. One is a 67 baja bug, another is some kind of roadster that we call Mr. Toad and he has a body sitting in the back that his dad is going to turn into a race car. I'm thinking about getting a baja bug myself.

sorto of...i LOVE AIR COOLED! i did a track day in 100 degree weather. it got hot, but never even close to overheating. i did add an oil cooler from a more modern car to assist.

i would love an older bug. but for now, this is it. 1981 911SC.
the motor comes out the same way (as a bug)!
