I used to own a 68' Continental Coupe. First car I bought when I came to America in 1995. It was the most relaxed driving experience ever.

And btw, you could stick one of those beetles in the trunk :lol:

I spotted a SpiderManBeetle on Long Island yesterday, but no pictures

Matt has threatened me with a ban unless I stay on Volvo pictures so I’ll try to comply….

My older sister wrecked our '68 Beetle at college. When they repainted it she had them change it to bright yellow. She threatened to put spots on it and make it a ladybug. I was embarrassed and said she couldn't park it at our house if she did.

Now I regret not encouraging her to have some fun.

We always put eyelashes on ours. I don’t have them on mine yet, I don’t think, at least ...
