If I remember correctly, your favorite vehicle for a long time, but sans the graffiti. It was probably the most beloved moving machine in the world. I don’t know about Florida, but California has been the happy hunting ground for the still functioning microbus.


    1. Being the proletarian that I was it was indeed my car of choice for nearly 30 years. Looking back I see now that compared to today’s sturdier models it was a deathtrap. There was a lot to survive from back then. 🙂


  2. Isn’t there a stretch, maybe Rte 66, out west where there’s a “fence” of VW Bugs buried roadside? This a cool shot because it is the Bug of a Love Child, at least somewhere in it’s life.
