I got mine in about 1970 and it was $900. Can you imagine paying that much for a car that is only 4 yrs old?! A lot of cars cost more than our first house now!!

We also have to remind ourselves that minimum wage was about a $1.90 an hour.

Congrats!! How fun!

I was brought home from the hospital in a shiny new 1969 Beetle. :D

(And the first car I ever owned myself was a 1971 Beetle. You can find a pic of it in the dictionary next to "love-hate relationship." Growing up in a VW-only household, I thought it was completely normal to have a car in the shop at least once a month.)

A VW beetle? Oooooh.

For some reason this reminded me of plans that existed on the 'net a few years ago, for building a trebuchet capable of hurling a VW beetle. Apparently the test bug was successful - brings a whole new meaning to the phrase "Junkyard Wars", doesn't it?

Ghah, I'm such a geek. :rofling:

I left my digi camera at the ILs Sunday, so as soon as I get it back I will post a pic...the only pics I have of it now are the new tail light lenses

Oh and DH fixed the clutch, so now it's just a matter of finding a place I can practice driving!
