L639 Zenith Blue ’67 Vert   Price: See Ad
"In order to tell you how I recently came to acquire a L639 Zenith Blue 1967 Beetle Convertible, I have to start in, well …. 1967. Unlike some of you, my good buddies who love these cars, not only was I around in 1967, but 1967 was HUGE for me!

It was dubbed the “Summer of Love” and, sure enough, somehow I landed my first REAL girlfriend! After so many false leads and feints, this was beyond fantastic. And this girl had an older sister who had just bought an L620 Savannah Beige Beetle. We seemed to spend a lot of time in the cramped back seat (the younger sister, pay attention). She also taught me how to drive the manual transmission. Then, just as everyone whom I knew was going to San Francisco, or at least singing about it (rest in peace, Scott McKenzie), my visa came through to go to work in Switzerland. That is where I spent the Summer of 1967 – in a resort hotel – in the Alps. Lucky, you say? It should have been, but each day seemed to drag the whole summer long–I was homesick and I missed that girl. Our long-awaited reunion in September was sublime. I remember every song we sang in that VW which was on the radio in the Fall of ’67, and all of the movies and concerts we went to in her sister’s ’66 (sigh)."
