Eccentric Uncle Tim’s buy of theweek
VW beetles taught generations about the rudiments of automotive travel. And many Beetles — such as this 1976 example, offered for sale at $6500 in Newcastle, NSW — still offer relatively inexpensive education. One lesson: apparently Beetles are holding their value of late. That’s good news for Beetle buyers, who can reasonably expect not to lose much in resale a few years down the track. Live the dream, Beetle people.
