For your consideration an all original 1973 Super Beetle with 52,922 original miles. The car is a very dependable daily driver with no mechanical issues that would hinder it being driven cross-country. It is very solid at highway speeds, (0-80 mph) with no shaking or front-end shimmies experienced with older Supers with aging McPherson strut assemblies. Engine has never been rebuilt and is very reliable year round. The electrical system is fully operational, dome light, map light, seat belt light, headlights, turn signals, backup lights, wipers; heating/defrosting blower system is very, very good, tires are new with low miles. All original dash with no cracks, seats and headliner. The drivers seat can stand new covers, but I would replace both front seats at the time of replacement, the rear seat is in great shape. (At the buyers request I can replace both seat covers for an additional charge) All original window glass, window rubber and window scrapers. The exterior paint is in fair shape and there are signs of rust in the fender/body seams, (see the pics) These areas would need to be address at some point if one would choose to restore to pristine conditions. Overall the car is excellent for a not so in-depth restoration to original condition if one so chooses. The floor pans are still solid, the doors are still in alignment and close evenly with the body seams, steering is very tight and it tracks straight without the front-end wandering. Brakes, transmission, all still in very good low-mileage condition. Major tune-up, oil change, valve cover gaskets, valve adjustment, all complete! The car is advertised locally so we reserve the right to end the auction at any time. Feel free to email with your questions. No reserve, vehicle sold as is no warranties stated or implied .................... thanks for dropping by ............kj

Volkswagen showed six conceptual takes on its Up at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show, one of those being the Up Buggy. Although few will probably remember it, VW has not forgotten it, applying for a patent for the Meyers Manx revival roadster way back in March 2012 and being approved in June of this year, according to a report in Autocar. That will give the automaker a 14-year lock on the design while it decides whether to move forward with a reboot of its past.

A patent doesn't mean the Up Buggy will ever move beyond the sheet-of-paper stage, but Autocar says VW is studying the market to see if a production version is feasible. We can't see North America ever getting it, but even so, we wouldn't complain if they made it - especially if they put an exposed engine in back that was set off by 18-inch-long twin tailpipes jutting straight up into the air. However, for a company that aims to be the world's number-one automaker by 2018, a niche vehicle for its mass-market brand would be a surprising use of resources.
Who would have ever thought there'd be a day where people are able to skip television commercials only to go to websites to watch them later? Such is the joy of a DVR and YouTube. AdWeek tabulated the 20 most-watched ads on YouTube, and found that nine were car-related including eight coming from automakers.

Volkswagen continued its Star Wars theme with two ads in the top 20, including the highest-ranking car commercial The Bark Side spot at number three with almost 18 million views, which doesn't even have a single car in it. Some of our favorites are from Chrysler with Clint Eastwood in It's Halftime in America and House Arrest with Charlie Sheen for the Fiat 500 Abarth. Chevrolet, Honda, Audi and Toyota were the other automakers in the top 20, but we'd be remiss if we didn't at least mention one of the coolest ads on the list, the Hot Wheels corkscrew jump.
Of all the car videos, only the Fiat ad wasn't played during a Super Bowl. Check out all eight videos - in order - after the jump. Nike took the top spot with its My Time is Now ad that has been seen online more than 20 million times with Pepsi's Uncle Drew posted up in the runner-up; some of the other videos include four Old Spice commercials and an ad in which Snoop Dogg is pedaling Hot Pockets.
It was just nine months ago that Strategic Vision announced its 2011 Total Value Awards, but you don't have to wait until next year for the 2012 awards. The Volkswagen Group keeps its lead as the number one brand, with seven products taking top category spots: Golf, Jetta Wagon, CC, Eos and Audi A3 Wagon, Q5 and Q7. Strategic Vision says "true innovation" - "rich and impactful, intuitive, motivational, in-depth and is able to trigger description by the user in great specificity" - is the open secret of the brands with the strongest showings. Results are culled from 77,153 owners covering more than 350 new cars bought between September of 2011 and 2012 ranked in the Total Value Index (TVI).
Other notable winners are Hyundai-Kia following VW in the brand category and having the Hyundai Elantra and Kia Sorento among category winners, the BMW Z4 taking the premium roadster category and the highest overall score of any vehicle, the Chevrolet Volt continuing to gather silverware in the Special Category, nabbing the second-highest score of all and representative of "nearly perfect innovation," and Chrysler and Dodge being most improved.
