Yes, A VW. Lovely little car. Same as Mickey, it has been forever since I have seen one! Rare as hen's teeth!

Oh, yes...a Type 3 Variant.

They made a notchback, a squareback and a fastback version of the Type 3.
The notchback is the rarest (and I think they only came with the 1500 engine). I always thought the notchback looked like a Spridget around the tailight area.

We had a 1600 squareback...our first fuel injected car, I think.

One guy around here has a really nice Notchback. He put a 914 engine in it- it SCREAMS!!
