Leave it to me to make a Volkswagen Bug expensive. My friend Brian Errea from Type E Motorsports was trying to talk me into getting a Bug for years, and this one started as a $600 shell. $17,000 later it had the best of everything and transported my friend Jereme and I to Cabo San Lucas in 2014 as we chased the NORRA Mexican 1000. It was even painted Forest Service green like the Junior Mint, earning the Bug the nickname “Spare Mint”. The car was a lot of fun with a big motor and so many amazing details, but at the end of the day it was tough to justify the price tag. When a doctor expressed interest in buying it I sold the car, but I get nostalgic for the Bug every time I cross the border to Baja.
