While I would give the current Volkswagen Beetle a second glance, a vintage one always catches my eye, especially these days when you don’t see that many in traffic. Growing up in the 1980s, you’d still see a good number of the people’s car being used as daily drivers, but not so much anymore. There’s plenty of ways you can customize a vintage Beetle to your liking and for not much money, either. One of my favorite looks is the “Cal look” as we see here with this 1968 Beetle. Powered by a 1600 cc dual carb engine and sitting on Empi wheels, this one is a real looker.

Earlier this year, we saw a similar 1968 Beetle that was a recent build given and given the Cal look treatment sell for $9,900. This car has a few more accessories thrown into the mix, but it seems that Beetle’s of this caliber these days are settling squarely in the $10,000 to $15,000 range. Sure it might not have the safety features of today’s modern cars, but these are still rather economical cars and quite easy to maintain, making this a great choice for those new to the collector hobby.
