Story
My first Volkswagen was a 1984 Jetta TDI with a 5 speed manual transmission. My first air-cooled Volkswagen was a 1970 Beetle I bought from a used car lot off Buffalo Speedway in Houston in the late 80’s. It was my daily driver for some years and the car I drove when I met my wife. It was our honeymoon getaway car but it broke down before we could get out of town!

On and off over the years, a few of the VWs I have owned are a 1962 Double Cab Pickup, 1964 21 Window Deluxe Bus, 1967 Westfalia Camper and a 1959 Ragtop Beetle.

Some friends and I lease a shop space in North Austin with all the tools needed to work on cars and stuff. We have extra space available for day use and/or storage too.

The Bus and Beetle are great for day trips around Austin, weekends in the Hill Country, weddings, birthdays, and "time travel". Almost everyone has some kind of history with an air-cooled VW.

If you happen to know of any rust free, air cooled VWs parked in your grandfather/grandmother’s barn or garage, please give me a call!!

Excellent transaction - absolutely perfect (my wife loved it). We had a great time. It brought back many fond memories. Thanks Martin for your flexibility regarding pickup times. I will definitely consider renting again in the future.

This was a great experience! I rented the VW Bus as a gift for my dad, and he loved it! Martin was super communicative, understanding, and helpful throughout the entire process. I would rent from Martin again and this was an amazing time all around!

Martin was the absolute best to work with and the car is absolutely gorgeous. I had a last-minute request to use the car for a photo shoot, and Martin was more than flexible. Even when I had to slightly adjust the start time, Martin was fast to communicate with me, on time, and provided plenty of flexibility. Martin provided fast and easy instructions for how to use every feature in the car. He was kind, trustworthy, prompt... and not to mention the pristine car! The interior was immaculate, and the exterior was painted in a classic VW color (Dove Blue.) I will be a return customer for sure.

Martin was a great renter, and I really enjoyed working with him. My company rented the VW Van for an activation during SXSW. We ordered magnets to attach to the outside of the VW Van, and Martin was very helpful providing measurements. The VW Van is a hit, and we received countless thumbs up and comments over the course of the rental. I wish I could own a VW Van like Martin's one day.

Martin's Beetle was a blast to drive and Martin was very easy to work with. The car is in tip top condition and drives wonderfully. It is highly original so you really feel like you're stepping back in time driving it. Excellent experience all around.

Still glowing from our day yesterday with Martin's 1966 VW Bus. The brides wanted to ride away in a VW after their wedding and this split window did not hiccup navigating our way through a busy downtown for photo shoots. Flawless and aesthetically appealing, easy to use and set up. Martin's Bus infused a whole lotta love for the event, we cannot thank him enough for making this happen. Phenomenal success as a photo booth, we look forward to the beautiful pictures surfacing over the next few days from friends and families at the wedding. Five stars to Martin for everything, and thank you Hagerty Rideshare for connecting us.

This was my second time renting with Martin. The VW Van was in great shape with a newly upholstered front bench seat. We used the VW Van for an activation at Austin City Limits, and everyone loved hanging out around it. If you’re looking for a classic VW Van that’s in great condition then you should definitely consider renting from Martin.

This car is amazing! Great condition, super fun to drive, fits Austin perfectly. Everything about it is a dream and you should 100% get a chance to take this classic around.
