In 1967 after discharge from the Marine Corps, I purchased a brand new 1967 Java Green Beetle (Bug), and while dating my future wife, had the most fun in that little car, but when we got married in 1970, we thought we needed a larger car, so my VW was sold. Fast forward to 2004, and an almost fatal Motorcycle accident, and the need for a new hobby. Enter my find of a 1967 California Beetle, which I purchased and named "Buggsy." The name has received almost as many comments as the car itself, at the various car shows we attend. When we ride in the car, it is one big flashback to 1967, and the fun times we had. Our local VW Club has great members, and of course we all love our little VW's.
