Is a 67 VW beetle a good first car?
I want to get a project one to sorda rat rod!
It will break down fast unless you replace all the engine parts.
Its nearly 50 years old. If you only want it as a hobby, go for it. If you need a car you can rely on, better get something newer.
As a hobby car and something to just take for a quick ride to somewhere close to home, sure. But you really want a car or truck that's super reliable, especially being young and it being a first car. :o
