It all started so simple. My wife calls and says "Hey I spotted a neat old Volkswagen Squareback for sale. I think it'd be a great first car for our oldest daughter." So I went with her to go look it over. The more I looked, the more I liked it. We came home and talked to our daughter about it for a while. Once we determined that it didn't seem like a car she was really interested in I latched on. Yesterday afternoon we bought it and today they delivered it. It's a 1970 Volkswagen 1600 Type III. It's a solid old car with minimal rust. It's not running right now but that doesn't matter to me at all. The car is coming apart anyway. It'll be going through a fairly complete restoration in the coming months. I'll probably post a shot every once in a while to show the progress. This is going to be fun!
