Rusty & Running


This old VW Bug looks a bit rusty and beat up but, it's still running and serving a purpose.  I watched it drive up and park in the supermarket parking lot and couldn't resist a photo of it.

Rat look then, seems to be a popular look for cars

Looks good. Would look great as a Brenizer method photo.

A true classic.

It has had a hectic life, I expect.

A bit rusty after a loong life...
We call them lovingly "Käfer".

The color is perfect to dissimulate a bit of rust...

It looks well worn. My parents had a couple of them.

As long as it gets its owner from A to B safely it's ok by me Sharon.. blimey it certainly knows how to stand out in a crowd with that colour :)

It's a beauty in its own right! I've always wanted to drive an original for fun!

Judging by the flat windshield it is at least pre-1972. That is old!

That's exactly how it should be! Loooooooove!

If it's rusty it must be from somewhere other than Phoenix.

I had a green one, a 1960 model, I think. But we lived in Chicago and the car had no heater. Plus it wasn't beig enough for the four of us! :)

Someone could make a lot of money if they rehabbed this. It's already been repainted once but it is in good physical shape.

Aw! This reminds me of my red "Fu-fu" which was battered and beat-up when I finally let it go. I loved my car!
