    I threw my bug out for feelers on CL

    I have been going back and forth for a while about selling the bug and picking up an old Bus or Land Rover. I threw it up on craigslist to see what offers come in locally before I get serious, set a price and put it on the Samba.

    Cool Old School Cal-look 1970 Bug

    If anything Craigslist is entertaining. In under ten minutes I have someone that wants the "item" shipped and says their agent will give me a cashier's check. Oh and another offer for "weed for life"...

    Yup nothing later than 1970 - '94 is WAY too new for me. I plan to get older with every vehicle I buy now.

    Thanks, in retrospect I think the only thing I would have done diff would be getting rid of the stripes and go with a color that doesn't get dirty so fast. As for buying the bus - the secret is to buy her something first and hold it over her head.

    Have been entertaining some offers and checking out the Samba, so I figure $7500 is a good round number.

    Don't Just Dream. You can pick up a running bucket for a few hundred bucks and start wrenching!

    That is one nicely done vintage machine. I like it, I had a 70 too so a little partial!

    Been entertaining the idea of buying either a well put together car like yours, or Starting from scratch. Havnt decided yet but that gives me an idea of what a beautiful example goes for.

    Pick up a shell, and a Bentley, and go nuts.



    on that note, rusty, the bug looks great, and I'm hoping, myself, that you can get it sold and pick up something older, too, as they're the most fun and interesting. I'd try to work backwards in years, myself, on cars, but my first car was a '62 Corvair, and I've got a '61 Jag sitting in PA waiting on me to take a long enough vacation to do some serious work on the both of them.

    61 Jag? An "E" ? Mmmmmm - get that sucker out here, I'll come over and help some.

    Yep, I figure I will get older with each one. By the time I am in my 60's I want to be driving a steam powered horseless carriage... "I can't go any lower because my boiler tank will scrape"
