Old Beetle


I spotted this old VW in a parking lot the other day. It's amazing how tough these things can be. I think this is a really old one and I always enjoy seeing them!

This past weekend saw a vintage, yet battered VW bus still motoring. It looked a bit more 'used' than this one though.

Pretty. You should have gone in for a closer look.

Yes, I'd guess this goes back to the 60s...love the fenders, too! If you embiggen it, you can see (I think) a "For Sale" sign in the window...

Hmmm...maybe you ought to make an offer?

Yes there are still a lot of them around. I saw a smoky ole van the other day. The Happy Van as they were called. LOL MB

Lois said...

I like seeing them too. This one looks like it is being well taken care of!

BTW: I am sure the fireboat is using salt water because they can pump it right out of the bay. MB

Love those old "fu-fus" ... We owned a much-loved red beetle with a sun roof. Wish we still had it. This photo is terrific!

LONG MESSAGE: I'm quite frustrated; cannot access my email account, comment on any blogs that don't allow anonymous visitors, nor access my Visual St. Paul blog. Lost all my addresses. Fortunately I had scheduled posts 'til mid-November sometime (but can't add to them with an explanation) because of surgery. Don't have time to start a new email account nor blog, but I'll be back. If you care to contact me in the meantime, I can be reached with another acct., tho: myhearthandhome@gmail.com

I love the old ones. I used to drive an old black one...but not a convertible. This one is wonderful!

I have never liked these too much, but the time itself says that the Beetles were and are great cars!

Those guys are workhorses and will never wear out.

The cars are really cute :-D

PS: Yes, you should take a photo of the grass, too! You'll miss it ;-)

Halcyon: You and I are both loving that day of the dead couch (Julie/Scottsdale). Do you think we could get it home in this VW bug?? LOL!
