Kim's 1974 Super Beetle

I bought 'her', the name is Brunhilda, in Napa County in June of '07. She spent approximately 6 years on the most beautiful estate- a private vineyard. She was originally owned by a chap from New Orleans. Unfortunately the owner passed away after a lengthy illness. His wish for her was that his good friend would take care of her, and look after her. That friend is the vineyard owner in Napa County. She was taken care of and repainted, new engine installed, interior all redone, brand new top. Brunhilda was not being driven much in the end, and the vintner had other priorities, so after about 6 years she was put up for sale. I was visiting my sister in June, driving through Napa on my second last day of holidays, and saw this beautiful convertible bug. And now she is here...in all this beautiful weather (Cold and snow here in Canada). And no, I do NOT take her out in this. There's still some work to be done, i.e.: door handles, and radio.
