1972 Super Beetle

Al & Nancy Aitken

"We bought this Super Bug brand new in 1972 in Kailua, HI...right off the dealer's showroom floor. We paid $2,000 for it. We sold it to Nancy's parent's friends 5 years later...for $2,000...and suggested if they ever wanted to sell it, to call us because we might want to buy it back. Well...35 years later they called us and we bought it back...for you guessed it...$2,000. I'm 70 today...that photo of Nancy and me standing in our '72 Super Bug was taken when we we're only 24. I hope to have it completed on its 50th birthday." - Al Aitken
