  •  Yes, another '69 VW owner here, also bought in '75 (3+ / 0-)

    But my VW was a Karmann Ghia, and it is the only car I've ever loved.  It broke my heart to sell it when I went to college (on the other side of the country).  Half a lifetime later, I still look with longing at the few remaining ones I pass on the roads (mostly in CA), wishing I had never sold it.  I miss it much more than my first boyfriend (though he was pretty adorable too).

    Nothing amuses me more than the easy manner with which everybody settles the abundance of those who have a great deal less than themselves. --Jane Austen
