My earlier old car before the 2002

Recommended Posts

I grew up exclusively driving air cooled VW's.  Beetles, FI type 4 bus, and Karmann Ghias until I bought my 75 2002 a few years ago with the money I received from selling my 77 Westfalia bus.  I still have my 1963 Karmann Ghia w/ a 1600 engine.  I drive just the VW and the 2002 all year long so I'm always on the lookout for rust. I think I actually baby the 2002 more than the VW when it comes to bad weather and rain. I often keep the 2002 in the garage and take the VW when the weather is a bad.  The VW may actually be less rust prone that the 2002.


The 2002 is my first water cooled car and I only got that a few years ago,  I'm almost 60 yrs old.


Picture of the 1963 taken this evening after some of the clouds cleared. I drove it earlier this morning in the rain and then dried it off with a big towel. A light rain followed by a towel dry off helps to keep it clean between washing
