Volkswagen fan reunited with her first Volkswagen through social media


NEW JERSEY — A lifetime Volkswagen fan from New Jersey used the power of social media as a time machine to bring back a blast from her past.

Amanda Dorset has owned nearly a dozen Volkswagen vehicles, but it all started with her first.

A 1975 purple beetle she drove when she was 16.

During a recent trip to her hometown, an old friend linked her to a car for sale on Facebook.

As it turns out, it was her old car, complete with a title still in her mother’s name.

And her name still hanging in the rear window

Now, two decades and $400 later, Dorset’s beloved beetle is her’s once again.
