    1. Yes, I hate to admit it, but my favorite VW...

      Yes, I hate to admit it, but my favorite VW magazine is Das Auto, and your comparison to the mom is quite accurate. I don't even know how to change a spark plug, and I realize that sets me apart from...
    2. Yes, that does sum it up quite well. I'm...

      Yes, that does sum it up quite well. I'm decidedly a different kind of car enthusiast because I don't wrench AND I like bone-stock factory cars. I get just as excited going to a dealership lot on a...
    3. And one more thing to think about: If everyone...

      And one more thing to think about: If everyone with Beetles, old or new, would realize this, then the hostilities wouldn't exist in the first place!
    4. I'm fully aware that the water Beetles underwent...

      I'm fully aware that the water Beetles underwent a complete change, but just like the Mustang II, the car's body is still unmistakenly recognizable as a Bug just as the Mustang II was unmistakenly...
    5. Man, when it rains with hate, it pours, doesn't...

      Man, when it rains with hate, it pours, doesn't it? I'll respond to each of my thread titles you've diligently found, and then add something at the end:

      You don't know any more than anyone else...
    6. What I was getting at was this: I know there are...

      What I was getting at was this: I know there are aftermarket suppliers for modifying and tuning water-cooled VWs, but are there any that carry replicated stock parts as they age, like the places that...
    7. Again, read this slowly if you must. I only came...

      Again, read this slowly if you must. I only came here to ask how many air-cooleds are left. It was my complaint that Mid-America refuses to cater to water-cooled Beetles that set you off into your...
    8. I'm not interested in any build threads. He was...

      I'm not interested in any build threads. He was the one who drew hostility with such ignorant remarks. That attitude is like telling someone in a 2013 Mustang that they don't count because it's not...
    9. Typical snobbish airhead response. And quite sad....

      Typical snobbish airhead response. And quite sad. A Beetle is a Beetle, whether it's a '51 Split, a '67, a '73 Super Beetle, a 1998 New Beetle 2.0, or a 2013 2.5. It's people like you that disrespect...
    10. Now that's something I didn't think...

      Now that's something I didn't think about......There would be a lot more in warmer climates. No road salt to rot the ungalvanized steel or putting them away for the winter because they have no...
    11. How many air-cooled Beetles are still on the road?

      Does anybody know? I know some 21.5 million were built from 1938 or so in Nazi Germany all the way up until the last one rolled out of Puebla, Mexico in 2003, but there's a person on another site...

      I personally prefer the styling of the older CC and Passat models. The newest Jetta looks better than the MKV, but the Passat and CC are too conservative-looking now. But that's just me. I'm sure...

      Where did this idiotic piece come from, the Car Lounge? :rolleyes:
    14. VWs won't be in high demand outside of the VW...

      VWs won't be in high demand outside of the VW scene, and that even holds true today, but I still think New Beetles and Beetles from 2012 on should be looked at as a continuation of one of the world's...

      As a water-cooled Beetle lover myself, I would go the total opposite direction and suggest that VW resurrect a no-frills, basic Beetle using the New Beetle bodystyle of 1998-2012 and the...
    16. Yes, that would be a very good candidate.

      Yes, that would be a very good candidate.
    17. I'll agree that in one way, New Beetles and...

      I'll agree that in one way, New Beetles and Beetles from 2012 on are completely different cars than the original air-cooleds, but at the same time, I look at them as a logical , evolutionary...
    18. I think the New Beetle is a far better car than...

      I think the New Beetle is a far better car than the original air-cooled model in every aspect. It has heat, air-conditioning, airbags, front-wheel drive, cruise control, traction control, ABS, an...
    19. To this day, I still fail to understand why the...

      To this day, I still fail to understand why the re-invented New Beetle only sold like hotcakes for the first 2-3 years after it was released. Millions and millions of people had air-cooled Bugs back...

      Thanks for responding. When I say "classic," I also don't mean just the cars that will fetch big bucks at Barret-Jackson 20-30 years from now, but any car that becomes old enough to wear collector...
