I'm not sure why I would do that. I just thought people might enjoy my old split.

I think he thought you were promoting it here to sell it but I think you are saying "old" because it already sold?

Anyway, thanks for posting it for others to view and enjoy.

Hi Everett, I posted it here to show off my split and new webpage dedicated to it.
I understand how 'old' can be misunderatood. I meant it like 'old girl', because she is old. ;)

I just wanted to followup with you all my split window. Sold the old girl to a great guy near Calgary AB.

I thoroughly enjoyed my ownership experience! I knew it was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own a one. My favorite thing to do with it was country cruising at 55mph. Lots of great memories... met my girlfriend with the bug... putted around with my daughter (she loved the bug!).

Thank you all for your wealth of info and allowing me to share my experience.

I'm sure this won't be my last vintage VW. Always on the lookout for something interesting. Got a soft-spot for an early 60's ragtop.
