So I'm driving along the other day and I see this cool old car and the first thing I think is "Beach." (The second thing I think is "take a picture!") I'm all for luxury (hubby will attest to it), but something about a ranch wagon with sea colored paint, white walls, and sweet longevity makes me long for ride like this to use strictly for pretty beach days. This ride was made for sandy feet and piles of boogie boards (in my mind, anyway :)
Then there's the Thing. I grew up in an area of LA that teemed with VWs. My brother Danny is the ONLY person I know who gets my mini-obsession with them, but he's only 16 months younger than me so he grew up with them too. Over the years, I've owned four VWs, in different styles, but never a Thing. This is a cherried-out one I found last year. Isn't she pretty? Hubby thinks I'm nuts, but wouldn't this be a groovy ride to throw a board into (you know, if I surfed and all ...) and take a spin out to the Rincon (ala Beach Boys)?
If I had a choice, I'd take the Thing, no doubt. But if someone bequeathed me the Country Sedan in sea blue, I wouldn't squawk ... ;-) How about you?
