Beetleboards of America

My interest in Beetleboards started when I was introduced to them in this book. I googled trying to find out more info about them and came across this thread on The Samba. Cool! One actually existed. I took a chance and contacted GoofyAboutBugs even though the post was almost 4 years old. It turned out that he still had it and, yes, was willing to sell it. We emailed back and forth for about a month before we worked out a price and I received it a few weeks ago.

It now sits on our mantel - one of the few VW pieces that made it inside rather than being stuck out in the workshop. I actually really dig it for the advertising piece of its history. Being one who goes in and presents ideas in comp form to clients, I appreciate the fact that someone saved this from such a presentation back in 1972.

So now I am on the lookout for more Beetleboad-related items. And a bigger house to display some of these cool items!

I dig the bell bottoms. They go well with the disco ball ;)

Ha! I didn't realize you could see our disco ball in the picture. When EPs mom walked into our house for the first time she said, "Why did the owners leave a disco ball?" It's that point we decided we had strayed from the vision our parents had for us.
