I have fond memories of Volkswagon Bugs, or VW Beetles. It was the only car my best friend in high school drove, and in the 1980’s it was almost a disposable car. Pick one up for a couple hundred, drive it till it dropped and get another.
Seriously, my Mother would take bets to see what color he would pull up in. Green, red, yellow, white, orange, convertibles and hard tops, we rode in the full line. During the summer a convertible was the best way to travel and my favorite was a little red Beetle convertible.
The doors didn’t always shut correctly and going down the interstate with a semi going by while holding the door was an experience. But hey, we lived. Now we have the stories.
Beach trips were always better in a VW Beetle convertible. Ok, at night when the wind got cold and the top didn’t go up, it was was chilly, but that’s what beach towels were for and the heater blowing full blast. Now why didn’t the heater work in the winter.
Sad to say, my friend no longer has running VW Bugs, these are the last remaining two of an era and they are for sale. Hopefully someone will buy and restore them to their original splendor and create new memories.
