Sort of. It was a Super Beetle made from a 1970 Beetle and two Super Beetles from 1971 and 1972.

I ended up selling it. I put it in the paper and was offered substantially more for it than what I had paid for it. Although I had rebuild the engine and redid all the brakes and wheel bearings and got all the electrical and heating working 100% by then.

I sold it thinking it would be smart to have just one car and focus on it. So I sold it and my 1985 VW Golf diesel and bought the Avalon. (This was probably a good choice since it looks like the wife and I are going to be parents.) But then the Wife saw this $300 Prius and just had to have it. So now we're a two car family again.
