I couldn’t talk about my favorite Super Beetles without mentioning Jason Morrison’s 73 1303 Beetlebaum.
Over 10 years of dedication in this car saved from a junkyard in mid-2008.
In much the same way as I think of my cars as Żuczek and Murbella, I cannot think of his car by any other name other than Beetlebaum now.
The car reminds of me of being 4 years old and loving the the battered and falling apart Beetle that escapes the junkyard to join the Beetle Army towards the end of Herbie Rides Again.
It does its best to keep up with the other cars! I remember even as a little kid wanting to fix it up and repair it.
Jason’s dedication to his car is commendable.
