I've been wanting for along time to write a post about Volkswagens and how they were such a part of the family for us during our growing-up years. I haven't been able to get together as many photos as I'd have liked, so I decided to just go ahead with what I've got, and maybe do another post later and/or fill in the details with some help from my sisters.
Daddy could and did buy bodies, chassis, parts and pieces and then fix up or put together an entire car. I have always thought that was remarkable. Here are the three of us Gold Country Girls - that's Lori, Tina and me from left to right:
And this is Tina and me:
Me, a Bug, and our beagle Yankee:
And this is me with my 1967 Beetle - yes, I provided the dents:
My caricature that was drawn at Disneyland in the 70's:
And I'll close with this , found at a yard sale last year:
Hopefully, we will have more pictures and/or posts to come in the future - Lori had a VW Bug, Mother had a 1971 Super Beetle and then two different Vans/Campers, Tina and her ex-husband had VW's, Tina had more than one Karmann Ghia- I could go on and on, but I think that's it for today.
(Except for comments from my sisters? Right, gals?)
