I agree 100% SB's are almost as hideous as the "New Beetle" but leave the STD fatties alone. lol my first car was and still is my 72 Standard Beetle.

Yeah totally man. I finished the 72's restoration last summer and picked up this 58 yesterday. All it needs body wise is rear fenders since the current ones are Fiber Glass Evil or Very Mad a back seat, and semaphores.
