What can't Chris Pratt do?
The Jurassic World star can officially add classic car restoration to the list of things he's amazing at. On Thursday, Pratt shared a photo of his restored 1965 Volkswagen Beetle, a project that took 12 years to complete.
"I love my 1965 VW Beetle," he wrote on Instagram. "Building this car has been a real labor of love. And a lot of trial and error. Started with a $2500 scrapper that I won playing blackjack. Cut to 12 years and many more dollars later and it's complete! (For now) They just don't make them like they used to."

The 36-year-old actor added that he "had no idea how to work on cars and learned through manuals and videos on YouTube."
"Nobody is gonna walk into a car museum in 40 years and say, "Whoa! Look! A 2003 Jetta! Fully restored," he mused in the lengthy caption. "Classic cars (this one is technically an antique) continue to get better with age."
Pratt ended his mini-essay by declaring, "And it's a dream come true to roll this one through the Hollywood hills. #CaliforniaDreamin #LoveBug."
Here's to hoping we'll catch Pratt and his wife, Anna Faris, driving around Los Angeles in the restored beauty!
