My past is catching up with me

I passed this 1966 VW Bug on the way to work yesterday. My first car was that exact model. I recognized the 1300 on the back when I saw this one yesterday. Zero to sixty in about 30 seconds downhill with a tailwind. It left me stranded a couple of times and it wouldn't start on rainy days - but I wish I still had it.


  1. The past comes from the back;)

    nice shot

  2. I've never really wanted a buggy, except when those new redesigned ones came out and then I wanted one of those lime green ones for a second or two. One of our first cars was a blue Ford Escort hatchback, that we called the killer hatchback because unless you propped a stick in it to keep it open, you might just be missing a head when it came down on you.

  3. Objects in the mirror are closer than they appear to be.
