I read somewhere on your site that a member loved the smell of his Beetle. I am very pleased to find someone other than me that enjoys that pleasure!
I don´t quite know what created that Teutonic smell but back when I had my ´63 Beetle, I could not get enough of that very special aroma!!
I have always been an absolute fanatic of VW´s, having owned first a 1945 split rear window, 1192cc, that had a starting handle, if needed, then the ´63 model in red, to a Type 3 Fastback in green.
I just lived for that very special sound the engine made when on song.
I now live in Spain and have toyed with the idea of trying to find an early Beetle (1950´s or early 60´s) but wonder if the temperatures we have here i Summer would make it uncomfortable without air conditioning?
Anyway, I am enjoying the site very much. Thank you for the professional input!
