My cousin Ellen had one. I remember Janet taking my brother, Mary and I to the drive-in a couple of times in it to see Roller Boogie and The Black Hole.
Two of my friends had beetles from the 60's. :)
Didn't some of the Beetles come without a clutch but you still shifted?
LA: They were really fun to drive.TG: They were great.Jim: There was a clutch. It was great having a stick-shift car as my first. I know some who can't use a stick and they have to stick with automatic cars.
I always wanted one of these....still do.<><
I always thought they made too much noise back then.
