    No rot anywhere and the engine was just rebuilt. (Needs to be installed) she has always wanted a beetle that was about her age.

    Well my friends do call me a gun toting hippie.

    Nothing wrong with that... but everyone knows that bumper sticker carry's a large political stigmatism.

    To each there own... good gift, if that's what she's into.

    It is funny because I dont think anyone expects a gun loving libertarian to drive any of my four VW's especially my bus with all the stickers. It is kind of fun to see people reactions at the range.

    She also has a 2013 Jetta diesel. The beetle is just a car she has always wanted.

    That's an easy restoration project. Looks like a solid car. Just make sure you check the usual rust spots. The spare tire tray etc.
