Hemisection of a VW Beetle
I have fond memories of the Beetle (although this one looks like a newer model than the one I had). In 1969 I had to quickly buy a car when a certain malefactor poured sugar into the gas tank of my Mustang and ruined the engine. The brand new VW Beetle cost me $1400 stripped down with just a radio and stick shift. Had to learn how to drive a stick, and had to endure Dallas weather without air conditioning. But I drove that bug everywhere for about ten years before finally selling it to my mother, who drove it another 10 years. A great car.
