I purchased this car from a family friend who owned it for 37 years. When I was 12 years old I remember telling her that I wanted her car. When hearing that she said that I was about number 20 on the list of people who also wanted the car.
Fast forward 18 years, I run into the owner of the car at a mutual friends wedding. She stated that the beetle was for sale. I asked her how much she wanted for the car and if anyone had been by to look at it. She said all the people that wanted the car no longer wanted it. I told her that I would come over and take if for a test drive. The day I looked at the car I gave her a check and the car was mine.
I have had the car for 5 years and I love it.
