I saw a post from hitest with a signature line that had 8 VW's
so which one of you is the TRUE VW NUT ......

How many RUNNING / DRIVEABLE VW'S do you have ???

Grandpa pete has one 63 three fold raftop ( the type 6 is not running at this time )

I only have three, but all of my VWs are running very well.

At the rate im going I should be right up there soon enough.

I only have one VW currently but it gets at least 50 miles a weekday on it. That should count for at least 10....LOL :D

But seriously, the most running VW's I have ever had at one point in time was only three. All were daily drivers. :D

I have only 2. Currently on a 1500 mile road trip in my vanagon. Have a 1500 mile trip this summer in the 67 bug.

Hello Grandpa Pete. My list has 4 registered and insured drivers: the '62, 63 and '71 beetles and the '74 Thing. The '65 Westy will be 5th on that list in about 2 weeks! The '65 DC will be sprayed in primer this week! The '66 deluxe is in "I have no excuses why it's not running yet" mode in my garage. :cry: The '62 vert is the long term, ran when I bought it project (I put it on the back burner when the deluxe arrived!). Here's a pic of the running beetle lineup:

Two air cooled, one water cooled. Not currently insured for all of them, but winter has a tendency to cause that issue around here. All will be on the road legally soon enough. maybe one more air cooler, too.

All three of mine run and are driven. 68 72 73 all standards type 1.
Next week taking the 73 from Arizona to Kansas City Mo.
Who else would do a trip like that?

ME :lol:
I have a 60 and a 70. next week the 60 is getting driven down to Denver and the 70 makes 2-3 trips to Bonneville depending on the rain, each year. No, not that I don't drive it in the rain :wink: only when the rain closes down the racing.
+ my wife and I take a 10-14 day camping trip in either one each year. once 4K in 2 weeks with the 60 thru 11 states and 2 years ago the 70 went to Saskatoon to see Brad and the boys.

My buddy who passed had 31 vw's and I think he had 10 or 11 running and driving

'62 bug and a '66 Westy and just barely have room for those. I don't see where folks make the space for the multiples.

ebenasky Tue May 05, 2015 1:07 pm

Three running and licensed - '74 Super, '64 Sedan, '71 Transporter. The '60 and '70 sedans are "in process".

My wife cut me off at 5 ACVW's. :?

Joey Tue May 05, 2015 1:28 pm

All four of mine are licensed, insured and all run and are driven.

Bret2094 Tue May 05, 2015 8:29 pm

Was this one a single person's collection?

That looks like BBT.

If so then yes, it's technically owned by one person but a lot of them are for sale. His stock changes regularly as they buy & sell cars.

Of course some of those are keepers too.
