comes with dodge caravan.

Being the lazy type, I got all my vehicles set for winter so I don't have to worry about fixing them in the cold. Got diesel trucks and (heated cab) diesel tractor pluged in. Expecting inside jobs with the complete Lowes store wife brought home.

But Noooooo, Now I have to figure out why daughter's stupid dodge van wont keep running. And she wants a second car. A '72 VW bug. From what I remember about them they keep you outside all winter working on them too.

Hmm Im single and have a 72 VW and a 90 model carvan lol. I know how cars can be brother hit a deer in his little pontiac Lemans he had as his first car. The deer got up and walked away and left him with a totalled car. When the incsurance company had it redone every week someting new went wrong with it then it settled down and he found a nicer car and we sold the Le mans or shall I say the Le'mon.
I stay on the truck side of the family for better resell, an 85 Chevy 1 ton will bring 3500 easy and a car made in the 90's wont bring but about 7 to 800 dollars.

heh heh - sounds like the 2 family, 1 house thing getting ripe again. we had that til junior suggested i do something romantic to myself. well where i come from you don't say things like that in another man's living room, after sleeping til 11 then being too busy to drive somebody to the doctor -sooo he got a new day's assignment - go find yer own hole to pay taxes on.

but we did land a good dil - she pulls her own weight, cheers people up and drops cute grandkids.
i'd consider the bug but only thing i know about dodges is i can't afford them :)

'72 VW? Talk about no heat!! I own @ run VW powered Rail Buggies, yeh they are alot of fun, but I in no way want a VW beetle to rely on for transportation!! They are kinda neat, but that's about it, they had there time in history. I'd get rid of the Dodge too and buy a GM product. Dodge...'72 VW.....not much difference there!!

Good year for a VW engine but big bucks and lots of time fixing them because of the newer style running gear and smog stuff. Owned a few and had a 72 VW engine in a 67 Bug that was nice but I worked on it all the time. I guess that will be your new job. I don't ever want to own another one. Mark H.

I commuted in a 66 bug for 8 years in Ca, we worked on a lot of them years ago. Best and cheapest transportation I ever had. Only drawback would be the heater in a cold climate. Can't think of a better, more functional ,easy to work on car.

I could pull the engine out of mine in 15 mins or less and all back in in less thw 1/2 hour. But I had a Baja so it was even easier to so. The heat problem is why I got rid of mine also. Mark H.
