I'm new to the group. I'm an American that's been living in Germany for a year. I've been an antique car lover my entire life. I recently finished a complete frame-off restoration of my 1966 Pontiac GTO convertible. So, I'm no stranger to getting my hands dirty.
Anyway, I've always been a fan of Air-Cooled Beetles and was thinking about getting one while I'm here in Germany. I've been reading everything that I can find on the web and I was wondering if any of you experienced Bug owners could offer some advice on what I should, and should not, be looking for.
I know that rust is the worst thing to deal with. But, more specifically, I'm wondering if I should try to find a Super-Beetle or a Classic. I'm wondering about the struts, the dual ports, etc and the opinions out there. My preliminary search shows that there are many Bugs available of all kinds here in Germany... including Mexican Bugs.
So, sorry for the long post, and I hope to hear from you all soon.
