Don't think I'll ever get tired of those sleepy lil' eyelids. Also that color is outstanding. That car makes me dream of summer. But actually I'm glad I don't own one, I hate the noise the old VW engines make.

Ohh I love this car. My dad has one exactly like this one, 1970 and orange! He wants to sell it now, but I dont want him to. How much is this car worth? His car is in very good shape, and the engine is good. Do you have any idea?

Slight correction; all Type 3's imported to US were 1600cc and were no longer named after engine displacement. so this car is really just called "Squareback".

Yep, its a beautiful car, nice design, I have one 1970 (brasilian style) and the noise of the motor is really loud, thats why im changing it for a new water motor... I very happy with the car, i like old cars.

I had a 1969 Type 3, also orange, with some mangy spots on the hood. It had some problems by the time that I got it in 1987. But then again, it had 200k miles on it, and had lived in Mexico for years.

The lack of back doors was a pain, especially when you wanted to jump-start it, as the battery was under the back passenger side seat. Heavy. Sat low so that it was hard to change the oil under it. Underpowered.

I want another one.

My first car. '66 in black, a primitive beast with no heat to speak of, headlights bright as a penlight, windshield wipers ran off vacuum, fuel line routinely vibrated loose from the carb, dripping fuel onto heat exchanger, had to be push-started frequently...not a wonderful memory. But the styling still looks great and with seat down they could cart a load of stuff...when they ran.
