Her Name is Rhoda, She is a Show Car

What really makes or breaks a vehicle is the owner. There are those who do the minimal maintenance to keep it running and then there are those who make their vehicles family. Rhoda the 1966 Volkswagen Beetle has an exceptional story and had wonderful owners who listened to her, cared for her and meticulously kept records of everything. And I mean everything. From every mileage, fuel intake, restoration needed, service records to when new owners came and adopted Rhoda.

There is a lot of personality that comes from Rhoda’s original owners…one of which who was even featured in the newspaper for his involvement with a live broadcast on ABCs Good Morning America. Flipping through the pages of records that they kept you can see the papers date in chronological order. Every time something of interest relating to their lives or Volkswagen happened they would add it to the folder; making it a memory/photo album. If all owners were these meticulous with records nobody would ever question or be hesitant with a pre-owned vehicle. Rhoda is 48 years old and transforms our show room from ordinary to extraordinary.
