One of the all-time best surf movies ever made is Big Wednesday (1978). And although the story is mostly about growing up with surfing during the '70s, it does feature a few classic VWs. With that in mind, another Big Wednesday was created a number of years back, to celebrate summer, surfing and of course, old Volkswagens. So, for the past few years, the second Wednesday in August has been set aside for a day at San Onofre Beach, in southern California. And today, dozens have called in sick at work, and are enjoying the day with their buddies.

In the September 2016 issue of Hot VWs (on-sale now!) you'll find this beauty of a 1956 Oval ragtop, which was once a rusted hulk. But after a few major setbacks, and so many long nights in the garage, it is finally "that Bug" that Arizona's Aaron Swinney always wanted.
