My Brother In Law found him this car sitting in a field with the top off.  The body was Rust free except the back passenger floor board had a small patch needed.  The body was severely dinged like it had been punched every 12 inches on every panel but still solid.  My other brother is a very good body man and fixed her all up.  That was 30 years ago.  He paid 400 dollars for the car.

Yup real good taste !!! ;D I had one back in 71 the guy who bought it new was killed in "Nam" and a friend of mine bought it from his parents,i got it from him about 6 months later. It was one with the L78 motor 375 H.P. 396 ,only car around to keep up with it was a Plymouth GTX with a 425H.P. hemi. I wish i still had that rig but in 1973 i traded it in on a new 1973 Chevy 4x4 pickup,i was working on the Interstate construction as a grade foreman and needed a pickup !! :'( :'(

Very good taste, but one thing I've learned is I would buy her something much cheaper and safer (slower) for her first car, let her get the wrecks out of the way, then let her get the hot rod  :D.

  A few years ago one of my coworkers said his 15 yr old daughter saw a Mustang that already had her name on it (Shelby) so that's what she wants, he said we might change your name first  :D, she got a Camry but didn't change her name.

Start with Hot Wheels. . Then a plastic model. . .  and I am sure you can find a Die Cast

well update on the dream car of my daughter ;D we havent been able to find a chevelle that i could afford but  :-\  we went and looked at early 40s ford yesterday with the flat head v8 with a 6pack carb setup primer grey with no side panels  and a flat custom hood so engine shows and looks nice and her exact words were " i'd drive it but i dont know im pretty sweet on that '54 2 door chevy  over at savannah. i just like the old turtle shell cars better" (thats what she calls all the old cars with that shape) :D :D :D
i have 2 questions     
1 do any of you guys have this problem with your daughters ???
2 why does a 14 yo girl even know this stuff to ask for it ??? :D :D :D

My wife and I were drooling over a 70 nova that a friend's brother had bought off the Barrett Jackson auction and my 15 year old daughter saw it and said "I'd want something newer"  ::).  I think I need to educate her a little better.

i guess thats right my nephew borrowed dads 46 ford with the suicide doors to go to his senior prom last saturday night  :o :D he also has a 29 ford model a and a 41 plymouth deluxe but we havent got to work on the plymouth much yet
all i have right now is a 56 chevy truck i will try to fix after i get my daughters car car figured out :)
mom and dad,1 of my uncles,and me and my 2 brothers founded the sardis farm and home show 20 or so years back so the kids have always been around old tractors,cars and trucks :)
 on a side note most of you probably read i lost my mom last week and her funeral was on saturday and so was the spring tractor show so her last ride went directly in front of the show grounds :) not planned it was just on the way to grave yard  :) and the tractor club had a ribbon put on the flowers that said founding member which i thought was nice :)  the thing is i never noticed the ribbon or thought about us driving through the show grounds  until monday afternoon when i went to the grave yard to visit :o ::)
 
back to the cars
 sandhills  i always liked the nova & chevy II  but good luck on changing her mind maybe take her to a cruise in or something where she can see several different ones and she will likely see something she likes :)
i will try to get some pics of dads old cars and put on here

My daughters first vehicle to drive was a 1 ton dually flat bed.
She ran over or banged into almost everything in the yard with it until she figured out how to drive it.
I figured she couldn't be any more safer than in that truck.
She started driving it around the farm at 12 years old.
Once she stopped hitting things she could take it on the roads.
That was the deal.
Lol.

 :D :D :D my girls started driving young 5-6 years old and have to master a manual trans before they get their learners permit  ;D :D :D :D and i still worry about letting them go by themselves ::) i think over all the bug will be a safer for car than the chevelle she wanted  :) i know it wont hold up in a crash as well as the chevelle but i think the 47 hp engine will offset the 396ss and be safer overall  ;)  after all a guy was killed last week in a 3 axle gravel  truck and the woman and child he hit were seriously injured but will both be ok they were in a early 90s model chevy 1/2 ton pickup ??? go figure ??? you just never know in a wreck what will happen :-\ this happened about 4 miles from my house at an intersection i pass through several times a day :( we are trying to get the state to make it a 4 way stop but who knows ???     anyway at least with the bug i know speed will not likely be a factor :D

When we were younger We had a bug as a beater car we drove around thru the woods and sand pits.
That poor thing was banged into all kinds of trees and rocks.
We never got hurt. Thing would never get stuck either.
They are pretty safe little cars for the most part.
It's a nice little car for her.
Now you can find a chevelle for yourself.  :D

i have never had a bug before either but i like the way it kooks :)  if the bug works out ok i will likely put ac on it they have some under dash mount units now that are supposed to only rob 1.2-1.5 hp for the compressor  :) everything including all brackets belts comp complete for $1495.00 not cheap but still a bargain for ac in late july and august down here :D

my biggest concern right now is do i have to learn german to swear at it or will it understand english good enough ??? ???

 the 396 will fit in the bug .  It takes up some of the back seat , that's a good thing because teenagers and a carload of friends = trouble.   That will be a lot easier than shoehorning in one of them Allisons.

Kbeitz, back in the day my sister's high school boyfriend built a doon buggy out of one and had the rear E brakes hooked up individually so you could turn on a dime and leave some change, the cats at our place were never the same  :D.  I remember a few rides like that in your picture, you couldn't stop that thing for nothing. 
Sandsawmill, not sure of the year, I'll have to look on the Karman Ghia.

A Sun Roof Sedan was available on Early bugs like 59-63 . . then you need a full inside rollcage .  There are many styles of tow bars, comes in handy when you need to drop one vehicle off.

I have a few friends that claim to be VW air cooled  " experts " so ask away or send me a PM. One good thing is most parts should still be available , like WWII army jeeps still running today. The Marines also made some four wheel drive dune buggies with Porsche engines for Afghanistan and Iraq.  Lots of sandrails out west in California and Nevada .

The VW Air cooled bus was the longest production vehicle ever made. They just recently stopped production in Brazil .
