Nostalgic views from my farm
I tried finding some of the old vehicles and take photos of them on this one.

This is the old Ferguson, we nickednamed it the goldfish, the only one here that is still in use.

This is the old David Brown, we tried to fix up for a ride or two about ten years ago, but it's rotting here ever since. Sad, it's a great machine.

We also have a VW Beetle. Real dirty on the outside, but looks fine inside. It used to work when I was a kid, but no more.

Last pic today is one of dads old Mini's. As you can see, it doesn't work or look too good. He's been japping about how he's gonna fix one day, but that will never happen.

What year's that Beetle? Might be worth some dinero to collectors if you clean it up.

As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
And I will show you something different from either
Your shadow at morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
I will show you fear in a handful of dust.

RE: Nostalgic views from my farm
Most beetles from the 60's-70's are about 5-7k from what I've seen. That is the ones in 'good original' shape. The fully restored and upgraded ones can command more, the baja bugs can go for more, but if you were to do a full restoration on one and cherry it out, I don't think you'd get your money back out of it. If I were to sell it (assuming it weren't too much to make it mechanically sound) I would just clean it up. If I did have one, and had some cash in my pocket, I would fix it up and keep it. I'm kind of a sucker for old VWs. The old beetles are great, but I also liked some of their funky cars as well, like the old Karma Ghias. I think I've even seen them in a split window configuration.
