    The days of the Volkswagen Beetle are long past.  There is an updated 'modern' version but it does not carry the charm of the quirky vehicle we all know and love from the 60s.  I found this one on a lot in west Texas.  A bit of rust and a couple of flat tires; the open road is no longer in the cards.  But it still carries the original green paint with pride. An image of this icon always brings a smile!

    Ok, I admit, I have a weakness for green, and another for Beetles. But the way this is painted is just so fun! In addition to that, the values are just perfect. I love the looseness and all the drippies. Great!


    LOVE this!
