Not that I’m gonna get all nostalgic about a 1947 VW Bug, but it’s simplicity amazes me –
Gas? Check. Fire? Check. Okay, we’ve got the ‘engine’ part covered.
Now for the controls –
Looks straightforward enough….
I took the diesel in for service and they offered me a bit on a trade-in for the Bug. I thought about it for a while. Until I realized they were talking about the NEW New Beetle, and not the cool, ancient, old Bug on the showroom floor.
Probably better off this way I guess.
An exterior shot. Sorry about the poor lighting and all the reflections, they’re more for the pretty new cars. Not so much the oldies.
The interior looks amazing. Give the people an exterior shot of this gorgeous mint dream!
There you go Christine. I’m not a fan of the photo itself, I’ll go when it’s nighttime and try again.
Nothing compares to the classics! Thanks for the shot!
Is this the model with the Pop Out turn signals? Called the “Maux nix” sticks in german? Knew a girl in college who had that model and even got a ride in it once.
Yeah, the pop-out turn signals are on this one. Thought they were introduced later? This one is a 1947 model.
I remembered that the correct spelling of the german phrase is…”Machs Nix” meaning makes no difference. Saying this so that a Deutch speaking person doesn’t get a large “guffah” from it.
