White-Yellow VW Bug and Combi in One Garage

Dreaming of an old and healthy car, bring me to crowl the web, tray to find as many as information of vintage cars in Indonesia. But accidentally, Om Goog just bring me to my friend page from Solo who love VW very much. He has two old VW, a bug type and a bus type. Both are painted in two colors, Yello and White. I do not know why he love this color combination very much. Well,… let’s go on his story …

everybody has their own treasure…

My little 1974 VW bus, I’ve got it in 2005, have a nice sparkling yellow and super white colors (all from speis Hecker).. Equips with power steering (cannibalism from toyota crown), melodic horn, two spots light. 34mm Solex carburetor, 1700 cc engine, 4-2-1 Thunderbird exhaust system, max speed = not known, as log as I drive my kombis, he could runs as fast as 2000 Toyota Kijang (in free way), perhaps it will be 120 km/h… 4 Mercedes Benz electric chair, sound system.. For next upgrading project, I need to change the transmition ratio. From 74 kombis gearbox into 77 kombis or safari gearbox…

Next treasure is 1969 1300 VW Bug

Cutie bug.. (my wife name it Miss Lady Bug).. Made in 1969 this car is a rare and unique edition. Transition decade from 1300 VW bugs into 1302 VW bugs. In some refference said that this model is the most unpopular model, because the price of this car at the moment is quite expensive. My bug, has spiecific color, sand white and ivory yellow.

Though it’s not a powerhouse like some of the other cars on this list, the 1967-1969 Volkswagen Beetle is instantly recognizable and could quite possibly be one of the more famous vehicles ever produced. Originally known simply as theVolkswagen Type 1, by 1967-1969 the German motor company decided to embrace the nicknames such as the “Beetle” and “Bug” that their car had received by an adoring public.

For the 67-69 Beetle featured a variety of improvements over its predecessors in addition to formally adopting it’s new name; a new drivetrain was included, the engine was made larger, and the electrical generator doubled its output as it was converted to a 12V system. Additional changes were also made to the braking system, clutch disc, and various other features, making the 67-69 Bug a functionally different car than anything that had come before, and it’s one on this list that won’t sting you TOO badly for vintage car insurance!.
