Hows it going everyone.!?? Just wanted to throw myself out there and introduce myself.......My name is Nate and I currently have a 68' Bug, which isn't the best.....but starts up everytime and gets my ass to work. Smile I was gonna drop it and scrape the pan, but I just recently decided to sell it......so $850 takes it all if anyone is interested.! lol Laughing Just hit me up if interested and I'll try to explain anything that I can since the previous owner didn't really know too much.

Anyway, this past weekend I drove up to Seattle and picked up a 75' Superbeetle. This thing is sweet.! Definetely looking forward to getting this thing on the road.! Its pretty solid as the previous owner did some work on it. I'm definetely gonna take advantage of thie site and ask a lot of questions, so please share what you can.! I'm all about learning what I can, so if anyone needs an extra hand doing anything, let me know.....I plan on meeting some of you, if not all of you, in the area and plan on catching some of you on the cruise this weekend. ! So, hope to see you guys this weekend.!!!

Oh yea.....If anyone has Beetle stuff compatible to mine, let me know.! THANKS Wink

Hey Blank1, actually I do have an interior (front and rear seats) from a 73 bug, should fit yours, they are a grey cloth material, if you are interested I could send you some pics. They arent perfect, but decent for the daily driver status.

So thanks....!

But I do have one question...dont know if anyone can answer it for me or not but.......Will a 1973 regular beetle door panels fit my 1975 superbeetle.??

Eh, no worries, I understand things coming up and jumping on them quickly. I can still get you some pictures of them.

On the door panels, yea they will fit, Im 99.83% positive 68+ door panels are all the same.

There's a cruise tomorrow you should come to if you get the chance, meet some of the local yocals.

NO! read the thread on the cruise, there was still 8 of us at the mall. We got there a little early, then the weather came, so we cut it a little early. Sorry if anyone missed us there, should have come done the whole thing Laughing . We will do another!
