Countdown to 2012: Resolution #3


Resolution #3: Fix up my Beetle.
Have I ever mentioned that I'm restoring a 1970 VW Beetle?
It's been a project my dad and I have been working on for well over 
a year and it's been on the back burner for far too long. 
2012 is going to be the year my baby finally gets on 
the road. My goal is to not only get it pretty and running, but
to also document the progress on Milk. Fashion, design, photography,
and now automotive preservation. The randomness just doesn't stop on
this blog, folks.

P.S. My Beetle's name is Geronimo Jack.
Yes, I'm one of those people who name their cars.

  2. Mine's named Emily. '69 VW semi-auto, original cream colour. It was on the road for one brief glorious summer but I've hit another electronics wall. Any tips? This is my resolution for the year too!! Good luck!

  3. I learned to drive using my parents minivan, Margaret. My first car was an '89 Volvo 240DL named Violeta. My second car was an '05 black Accord named The Heatmiser (Black car + southern CA sun = sweatbox). My current car is am '09 Accord named Roger.

    Naming cars gives them more personality, don't you agree?

    Good luck with the restoration!
