In addition to the signature line, I bought, fixed, and sold 5 Toyota Tercels to help fund my VW addiction. This was when they were newer and worth some bucks however... I also owned a very nice '67 Mercury Cougar for 20 years and occasionally even miss it. Just bought a 2002 Acura for $100. Not as bad as you think...

Don't want to bore you with the details, I own a shop and probably have bought sold and parted out over 100 Water cooled VW and Audis over the past 10 years. Air cooled wise , 25 or so, including a 64 sunroof Notchback, 2 57 beetles, 1960 double door standard Mango bus ( which I never should have sold). My current fleet is a 66 Squareback, a 66 21 window, and two 1960 beetles, one is a Euro model the other is Indian red.
