My adventures with an old school Volkswagen
started nearly 9 years ago. It has not
been without bumps in the road. In fact,
I've hit many potholes along my journey
too but I would not trade the experience.
This little VW fits me perfectly because
he is quirky, eccentric, unpredictable
and well.... he isn't perfect! I always
wanted an old car and when I found the
opportunity was right I decided I needed
to make my dream a reality.
searched online for some time until
I found a link on The Samba. It was
for a business in Minnesota, Sunset
Classics. The owner, John Snell had
posted many photos and videos to aide
in my decision to make this little 181
my own. After much conversation and
more in-depth information on it I made
my decision. John helped me set up shipping
and in a few days I found myself face
to face with an orange Thing!
was love at first sight! There was one
problem.. I didn't yet know how to drive
it. I did not have another car so I
knew that I must learn quick and that
I did. It was not at all pretty ! I
killed it over and over again and made
countless motorists mad. Some understood
the process and showed encouragement
with a thumbs up and atta girl! I was
determined and in a couple of days I
wasn't great but I could manage on a
back road. Now... after many many car
shows and thousands of VW friends and
family later.... here I am still enjoying
the bend in the road in my little VW.
His name is Bronson! He is my adventure
buddy and I'm happy everyday that I
