Is it weird that, since I was a child and to this very day, my dream car is a vintage Volkswagen Beetle?

I would absolutely love to own one of these beasts.


[as seen at an apple orchard today where the three of us were apple picking]

For the live of me, I cannot explain why. It's probably all kinds of uncomfortable to sit in, it would be stripped of all the features I've come to rely on in a vehicle, and it's probably expensive as hell to maintain because of the cost of vintage replacement parts.

And yet I still want one.

Thank you, Walmart (words you won't hear me say often), for providing me with the base design for what will surely become one of my Jack-o-lanterns this year! I love this. Simple and awesome.

I'm sure you don't remember, but that was our FIRST new car and you traveled in it for several years! It was even that identical color. It was a '72 Super Beetle that we bought in Memphis. Oh, the stories we could tell you about that car!! We paid $1,900 for it and it had dealer installed air conditioning. It was a 60 hp car.


I wonder if that’s why I feel this inexplicable connection.


Yeah, that's weird, but I’d be willing to bet that you’re right on the money with that one! A long, forgotten memory, I guess!
