Something new?

Surprised I am back so soon? It's an improvement. Hef's dad is dreaming of a BMW or a Mercedes so we were looking at them today and I found this gem! It's a 1969 Beetle!

So its kinda weird, its not an automatic and its not a manual, its semi-automatic. No pressing the clutch but shifting still, weird! Hef's dad and I are going back to the dealer wednesday night to talk to them. I'm trying to make an even trade, but we'll see. Might have to keep working at Wendy's, ugh! Anybody ever drive a semi-automatic?

MUST HAVE BUG!

It's had some customizing - look at that steering wheel!

BL wants a Karmann Ghia. I want a Triumph TR 4!

WOW!! You gotta get it if you can. I don't know about the semi-automatic. My cousin's was just regular manual and I loved driving it back when I was a senior in high school and freshman in college. That was in '69 and '70. I loved that car. He still had it stored in the garage last year when he passed away. I really wanted to buy it, but another cousin did a bunch of work on it and didn't want to give it up. I had to give in. :(

Carmen C. is 100% right. You would look ADORABLE in that little bug. Old bugs were always my favorite car but the "revival" versions of recent years just don't do it for me.

I don't think I've heard of a semiautomatic transmission but I like the sound of it. My ex tried to teach me to drive manual a long time ago but I just couldn't get the hang of the clutch and he didn't want me to break his car! but without the clutch it sounds so much less daunting!

Cute car! I didn't even know such a thing (semi-automatic) existed.
