Im cross posting this on reddit and a aircooled site because i need their knowlege. Yesterday i bought the first car i ever wanted. a 1963 beetle. It was herbie coloured but now it sits primer black. Its going to end up satin black with satin tan sides. Also lowered like 4 inches. I was not planning on motor mods at all right now, just some whitewall tires. If i can some sort of electric ignition system since the current one is a puzzle to get it to start. You pump the gas like 3 times then turn it over then pump it again and hold it half down for exactly 3.7 seconds then it starts randomly if it feels like you did enough work. I am the third owner of the bug. The previous owner got it handed down from her grand mom who bought it new in '63. I have the orignial owners manual, documents, paperwork etc. from 1963. its been amazingly kept in great shape and maintained. the interior is brand new. it looks newer then my truck inside. It lacks key features like a radio, and such but thats what i love about it. its just wheels and a motor. Nothing more, nothing less. Doug (ive named him doug) has 67XXX miles on it. so like 100k or so in 52 years. I have never been this excited for a car, or anything i can remember in the last 30 years. Its been a dream to have this car since i was a little kid playing in my dads old bug in the driveway, and now i have my own. I will keep you updated on how it turns out. The last pic is what im kind of aiming for.
