For Glorious Car

Bastrop, TX hosts 15th annual classic car show for vets

Elgin resident Matthew Callahan fondly refers to his 1967 Volkswagen Beetle as “David,” which he showed at Bastrop’s 15th annual Heroes & Hotrods Veterans Weekend Car Show.

Elgin resident Matthew Callahan is so fond of his 1967 Volkswagen Beetle that he gave it a buddy-title. 

“I’ve had David for 30 decades. He’s almost additional a pet than a auto. David sat in a subject for 30 several years ahead of I rescued him,” claimed Callahan, as he stood subsequent to his sunroof-design Beetle during Bastrop’s 15th annual Heroes & Hotrods Veterans Weekend Auto Exhibit on Saturday.

Callahan explained his love of tinkering with Volkswagens led to his doing work for his dad in a Volkswagen mend shop after he attended significant university. Callahan said his ‘67 Beetle has a small far more meat in its engine than the common designs of the Sixties. 

“It’s a 1,641-cubic-centimeter motor with greater pistons and camshaft than most Beetles,” Callahan said.
