My wife just bought me my Birthday/Christmas present... 1961 Ragtop Bug!!! We don't get it for a couple of weeks... but we spent the day driving it around... put a down payment on it... and pick up and finish paying for it in 2 weeks!!! I know this car belonged to someone on this site before... and I would LOVE to find out more about the car from the PO... but until I get it, I won't be able to post photo's. My wife ROCKS!!!

If any of you know who had "Old Blue", 1961 Ragtop... had silver BRM's on it at one point... now has Porsche polished (fakes) on it now... I would love to get any info I can!

More giddy than a school girl going to prom!!!! I have been out of the game for WAY too long... but... I'M BACK!!!!

I remember seeing the car a few times. Liked it better on the gray brms. It is a grafted ragtop car if I remember correctly nothing wrong with that though. Always liked the look of the car. Welcome aboard! Hope to see you and the car at some of our get togethers (Aircooled Airheads)!

Welcome to the site, I'm just up the road from you in Newnan and also have a ragtop. Looking forward to seeing yours out and about soon. Come and hang out with the Airheads sometime.

Thanks for the warm welcome! As I said before... as soon as I get the car I will post pictures. Hobug - is there any way you can get me in touch with him? I would love to talk to him about the car!

I look forward to hanging out with the Airheads very soon!

Welcome to the wacky world of GaDubs. I'm not far from PTC, down 34 a piece, Thomas Crossroads area.

Lots of stuff going on to work that ragtop. Something just about every month going on in the Atl area.
