Autos for Life receives a TRUE barn find!

By David N. O’Steen, Jr.

vw32Since its inception , the National Right to Life “Autos for Life” program has always received an interesting variety of donated vehicles, including everything from luxury cars, RVs, economy cars, vans and trucks, boats and even jet skis! We have always taken vehicles from anywhere in the country, and have always said that they could be of any age.

That certainly rang true recently! Autos for Life received an original, unrestored, 1961 VW Beetle that has been in storage since 1994! The car has always been in the same family since new, and was the donor’s father’s car.

Knowing that the donor of this popular classic VW has a strong sentimental attachment to the car, we feel all the more honored that she chose to donate it to National Right to Life through our “Autos for Life” program!

It is the unselfish giving of gifts such as this that enable us to keep doing what we do… saving lives! Please keep them coming! If you or someone you know has a vehicle to donate, or for more information, please contact David O’Steen Jr. at (202) 626-8823 or email

vw33All that we need from you is a description of the vehicle (miles, vehicle identification number (VIN#), condition, features, the good, the bad, etc…) along with several pictures (the more, the better) and we’ll take care of the rest! Digital photos are preferred, but other formats work as well.

You don’t have to bring the vehicle anywhere, or do anything with it, and there is no additional paperwork to complete. The buyer picks the vehicle up directly from you at your convenience, and you receive a tax deduction for the FULL sale amount!

All vehicle information can be emailed to us directly at , or sent by regular mail to:

Remember: Vehicles truly can be of any age, and located anywhere in the country. And don’t forget countless innocent lives are depending on us!
