Another fan of the Olsen’s Air Cooled VW wrote, “Went to Olsen’s for the first time this week to pick up a part for my 1965 Bug. First of all, the place looks like it would be the ultimate VW shop/parts source. It is a great old building built in the 1920s. I met both Larry, the owner, and April his daughter. It is a family run place. Larry and I started to briefly talk about our military lives; it was a great conversation. It was like we served together, even though he is a Vietnam VET and I am an Afghanistan VET. The beauty of being veterans. We called each other “Brother” and “Charlie Mike-d.” Nice to know that there is another reliable VW spot in Tampa.”.
