    My brother wants to buy this beetle...

    He came to me a while back and said, "I found the car I want to buy. It's an orange VW Beetle."

    The picture below came right to mind and I asked him if it was that one he was talking about and and he was shocked I had a picture of it.

    Unfortunately, it is not for sale...

      Let him drive one in winter! I bet he changes his mind! Should not be too hard to find a nice one for him. You can just about buy every part for it and build a new one in your driveway!

      Looks like a pretty nice later Beetle. I do like the colour.

      What's wrong for driving it in the winter time ? I was driving mine ,a 1962 for about 5-6 winters , with a lot of snow, do you know how good is this Beetle on mountain snowy roads, better then a modern car...stability, no skiding , amazing manouvrability on ice !!!!

      I still can't imagine owning a car here in the city, but when I do, it will be a Beetle!

      The problem with driving a Beetle in the winter time is not traction. For that reason, they are tops! Personally, in the winter, I am a big fan of having a good heater. Something they really do lack. I had a friend in high school that had a Beetle, and on a below zero day, there was no heat to speak off.

      The option gas heaters apparently work really well. I had one on my '62 Beetle although I was never brave enough to use it!

      Yeah, I have heard a few horror stories about the gas heaters. I think I would still save the Beetle from the harsh winter and drive the Golf instead!

      Someone I know sold her old, but pristine Beetle, because it was impossible to demist the windshield in winter.
