    But it has the “newer” bumpers. So it isn’t that old. Probably mid 70′s? My bug categories are old all chrome metal bumpers (classic) and these wrap around bumpers (new).
    I’ve had two 1965′s, the pre and post 12 volt electrical is also a break point. (1965 is pre – a 6 volt system.) When variable speed wipers were achieved by turning on more or fewer other electrical components like lights and radio.

    I wish those old cars were safe, I would have one again.
    And I love the ringing back sound of those old engines, you had to keep adjusting the valves all the time. But anyone could do it.

    Thanks for the photo.

    I think there was a sticker on it that said 1976.

    That is Crystal’s vehicle. And there is an interesting story behind it if you ever want to ask her about it. And yes, she works at ABC. Great person, wonderful friend. The story about the bug with the racing stripe is a good one.
