Today we had a blast! We set up a meeting with a young guy called Kyle from Palmdale. We got to know him via www.lovebugfans.com. Since the age of 12 he owns a VW Bug which he transformed himself into an awesome Herbie replica. Here you can see Kyle with his Californian Herbie and Domi with our Love Bug from Austria.
