Curbside Outtake: 1967 VW Beetle – Volkswagen Of A Lifetime

This VW has been a fixture in our neighborhood since well before we moved here thirty years ago. The rather curious fellow that owns it is obviously planning to drive it for the rest of his life. It’s a keeper, and I can respect that.

I took pictures of it some ten years ago, but I can’t find it. It was green then, and had lots of stickers on it. The wheels are still the previous color.

The door lock has been replaced with something a bit simpler and more durable.

The owner hauls a lot of stuff around, so the passenger seat is long gone. He doesn’t seem the kind that would likely have a passenger.

The back seat has a tarp for a cover, and it gets a lot of use.

I do like hearing it around the neighborhood. And I hope that continues for a long time yet.
