Default re: riding in the VW Bug

Morning all,

Back in 1979 the DQ landed at a state park just above the big dam (Barkley?) that creates Kentucky Lake. I was still walking on canes back then and made the hike up the hill for the picnic that was set up on shore. Going back to the DQ my wife and I were given a ride back to the boat up the gang plank in the VW. I do not remember the name of the driver but did share with him we owned an orange '74 Bug. The VW ride was one of the highlights of our trip!

Our Bug got traded in for a '93 Honda Civic that still meets our needs some 200K miles later today. Our Bug was sold to a student and last was reported about 20 years ago as being restored and living in Florida.

Keep you steam up!
