Heh Here she is. It's a 1969 Beetle with a rebuilt 1971 1.6L engine from the previous owner. Not the prettiest, but under the pockmarks the body's in good shape, and it runs very well. (For being almost fifty years old, it's been the most reliable car I've ever owned Far better than any of the mid-'90s sedans I drove prior to this.) My dad assists with the maintenance as he cut his teeth on vintage VWs (I'm gradually getting a handle on doing it myself,) though the most involved we've had to get thus far was a carburetor rebuild when I first got it. We replaced the distributor with a Pertronix electronic model, so I don't have to adjust the points; beyond that, regular oil changes and tappet adjustments and the occasional tightening up of the brake drums have given me two years of regular usage without any major issues...by this point, each of my previous cars had started in on their final death-spiral, and they were all thirty years younger.
