Head Turner

I grew up in Golden, Colorado and my first car back in 1977 was a yellow 1974 Super Beetle with a factory sunroof. After that, I purchased a 1968 Beetle. I've always been a fan of Walt Disney so I re-painted my Bug to look like Herbie the Love Bug. I landed a job at an animation studio, Don Bluth Productions, they made "The Secret of Nimh", "An American Tail", "Land Before Time" and the arcade game "Dragon's Lair".

I got married and we drove "Herbie" out here to Southern California in 1981. Some folks at Disney spotted my Herbie and ended up using it (and many others) for a Herbie the Love Bug television show in the 80's. I always missed my VDubs over the years so about 10 years ago I found this 1974 Super Beetle convertible in Fresno, Ca. It was about 90% restored at the time. I continued tweaking it, (keeping it as original as possible).

Sadly it sat idle in my garage for 8 years, finally had it towed to a mechanic I trusted, and now I drive it to work almost daily! Runs like a Swiss watch. I absolutely LOVE driving it as often as possible!! A real "head turner!" My next goal is disc brakes for the front and then who knows...
