1979 Volkswagen Cabriolet (Super Beetle)

1979 Volkswagen Cabriolet

My first car, from the last model year that the original Beetle was sold in the United States in any form. (The Cabriolet was actually built by Karmann, based on the Super Beetle from 1971 on.)

Dad and Daughter with our first cars

Dad and daughter with our first cars: me with my 1979 VW Cabriolet and Tessa with her 1999 VW New Beetle. I call them our "odd nines" Beetles.
