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!
