I haven't seen a specific post or thread about this. So I figured I woild start one . If one exist please delete it and take my cousin out on a date. Lol. The idea here is someone regretted selling their VW for whatever reason. Well time has passed and they want to see if it's around and hasnt been crushed/ left out to rust or pushed off a cliff after Billie Jo and the boys used it as a getaway car in a string of aemed robberies ( im sure it has happened besides Bundy using a vug like he did ). Post a picture of the car and who you sold it to, what city you both were living in and what year. Pretty much as much info on the car and buyer you can. Hopefully someone sees this and passes the thread here along and connects the 2 people. Deals struck, my cousin gets another date, someones crying and the reat are reconnecting with a lost love.

I have always wondered what the guy did with my first bug after he bought her from me. She was a 1963 or 1964 hardtop bug. New license plate number was 5MEG006 OR 5MEG005 . Primered grey. Car was originally Java Green. 2 inch dropped spindles. I had her listed on here and in the recycler classifieds. Lived in San Bernardino at the time. A guy from Fontana called me up. Showed up in a blue S10 his wife and a 6 pack of budlight. Left with what he showed up with minus a few beers and 920 bucks or so and had himself a project. I threw in a bunch of extra stuff along with it. I do t remember his name. This all happened in fall of 2005 i think. Latest was 06. I would consider buying it back depending on what she looks like now and price.

There is no dedicated thread but there have definitely been specific threads about people looking for their old VWs in the past.

They always have good stories or memories like what you posted so it's interesting

I figured try and get it all on one from now on. See if it happens. If not it was worth shot. Would be nice to see someone reunited with their baby.
