Roadster Pickup: 1971 Volkswagen Beetle

I’m not sure I’d ever own and drive a car like this next one, but I can say with some honesty that I’m glad it exists. Because it means that some guy got to live out his dream of building a custom and that maybe it gave this dude a reason to get up each morning and get it done. That is a story that never gets old. Find this 1971 Volkswagen Beetle offered for $7,500 in Gardnerville, NV via craigslist.
