Volkswagen Beetle In My Life

For most VW Beetle lover has their own story that started their hobby to collect it. This my story about VW Beetle i my life.

VW BEETLE is always bring back a lot of memories. It was my Dad's first family car back in 1968. My Dad brought it second hand for RM 4500, just before he married my mum. He been driving it for almost 10 years before he sell it. Still can remember at that time the Beetle has no air conditioner but it is cooling back then. I also do silly things like talking to the car, after watching the first Disney motion pictures "The Love Bug"

The picture below was taken in 1975. I am the one pulling the Volk's bumper, I am only 3 years old. The one who rubbing his eye, was my big brother (Daniel).

My First Toy Car.

This is the car that started my Toy Car Collecting Hobby back in 2001 .
This car was use in the movie Back To The Future I, II, III & IV. The real car is specially modify from the car maker: De Lorean, model DMC-12.
It started by trying to get some souvenir at Universal Studio CA and I found this cool Back To The Future II (BTTF II) De Lorean DMC-12.
My first toy car collection is made by Johnny Lightning, 1/64 scale made in 1998 by Playing Mantis, Made in China. Only sell at Universal Studios and U-Drive.
Later down my collection. I found another BTTF(1) car made from Hot Wheels & BANDAI Japan at one of the local hobby shop.

This De Lorean BTTF II was not their when I went back in December 2005. Anyway this is how I looks like in May 2001. I really wish to the car door was unlock and quickly take a picture while seating inside my dream car.

This is the BTTF ride. It took me almost 45 min to enter this theater to enjoy the Time Machine motion picture ride on the De Lorean.
