Awesome find!

Went out for a random tour on Sunday in my '72 2002. Just south of Bancroft (about 2 hours from home), I spotted a flash of orange. When I turned around to investigate, it was a very mangled and rusty, but very complete '72 Inka 2002. Parked in front was a stripped, but very solid '72 Beetle (Baja Champion SE edition)

Investigated, and ending up picking up the pair for a song... the 2002 has been exactly what I've been looking for since I bought mine in '05, just for the odd little trim piece that's been missing or damaged. All four steel wheels are straight, the original spare tire was still in the trunk and holding air, and two of the hubcaps were in great shape (my good 02 came with a pair of decent hubcaps, but no steel wheels). OH... and the wiper motor was still good! I've been looking for one of those for quite a while.

I can't believe what a lucky (and very random) find this was... I primarily restore air cooled bugs, so the limited edition Beetle was an awesome find as well.
