1966 VW Beetle - Inaugural Drive Around The Block

The car is no longer lowered this much. The original beam was a shockless 6.5" narrowed adjustable beam with 2.5" dropped spindles. The rear was also lowered one notch. It now has a stock front beam with 2.5" dropped spindles, and the rear has been brought back up to stock. Check out my blog ('66 VW Beetle Project): http://www.vwblvd.com It's been 11 months since my '66 Beetle arrived from California. Today marks the first time I drove it on the road. It's not done yet, as you can see in the video, but I'm getting close. Pretty exciting! Paint Color: 2006 Toyota Scion TC color. "Hypnotic Teal Mica" Paint Code: 8U3 Paint Brand: Dupont

A 21st Century Family Test Drives a 1966 Volkswagen Beetle
Taking a 1966 VW Beetle out for a test drive with my wife (we were born about the same time this car was built) and our daughter who was born close to Y2K. The video is a bit shaky but I thought this would be a fun test drive. Still deciding if I want to buy a classic bug.

Vintage! The VW Beetle | drive it
It sounds a bit strange for a popular family car like the Volkswagen Beetle to be outfitted with a roll bar, bucket seats and a racing harness. But the first souped-up VW Bugs hit the roads in Germany as early as 1951.Drive it! got a chance to take a specially-tuned, vintage rallye Beetle out for a spin - and discovered that roll bars, bucket seats and racing seat belts are more than welcome in a Bug that can do 170 km/h.
