This week's Utah Crowd-Funding project aims to prolong a bug's life.
The bug in question is Beatrice, an old VW Beetle that Salt Lake City resident Sarah Godette found in an internet ad in May 2013. "There she was on my computer screen calling to me to come get her," Godette wrote. "A few hours later she was mine."
Alas, Godette soon discovered problems with the car, and it has sat idle for nearly a year.
Godette aims to restore Beatrice the Bug, " to maintain the classic feel of the VW Bug while giving her some modern updates that will allow her to last 40 more years."
