This is the 6th Volkswagen. I have owned a '75 Green Standard Beetle Sedan, '73 Orange Super Sedan, '70 (I think) Powder Blue Standard Beetle Sedan, '72 Powder Blue Fastback and a '70 Blue Karmann Ghia coupe. However, until last May I hadn't owned a VW since my Ghia was totaled in Fall of 2000. During the 20 years I had stalked VW's, but was never able to get back into the life. Last summer I found this convertible that had been stored in a garage for the last four years because of a blown up engine. Most of the pieces were there and I thought I'd be able to rebuild it. My wife agreed it should be part of the family, and I wanted to start teaching my kids about cars. We wound up taking it home on a trailer for $2,250.
