This section details the history of my Bug prior to September 2006 when I began restoring it.

“In the beginning” covers the period from September 1997 when I originally bought it up until June 2004 when I bought it again.

“The Fire” describes the horrible day in June 2004 when it burned.

“Aftermath” covers from the day after it burned until I bought my house and it came to it’s new home in my garage where I finally had a spot to begin restoration.
