Just yesterday, I attended a Volkswagen gathering here in Quezon City, Philippines. It's main goal is to put up the biggest number of Volkswagen cars, whatever model it is and their attempt to have a Guinness World Title Holder. There are more than 700 vintage cars who registered and participated in the parade. It is a very cool moment to see those different unique looks of these vintage cars to gather in one event. I have seen different colors, styles and even celebrities driving their very own vintage cars. I remember back then in my childhood that some people mock the VW's for their turtle look but me? I don't agree with them. They just can't see the beauty of this unique looking vintage cars. They just proved me that the outside look is better than the inner and I have learned my lesson well on that. BEAUTY IS DEFINITELY ON THE EYE OF THE BEHOLDER. ;) I am so happy that I become a part of it even if it only exist in my dreams to have an awesome beetle but maybe, I'll have one in the future.:)

My husband would have been fascinated with this. He loves checking out cars & I know he has mentioned Volkswagon a few times. To be honest, I have no true interest in cars. My daughter has just turned 15 & she is becoming very interested in cars.

Car fanatics won't be a fully fanatic of cars if they don't admire the Volkswagen series. It's really cool and classic. hmm, maybe your daughter got it from her father. She's young to be interested to cars, I guess it will not be so long when she will ask for one hehe :)

Hi mskz good to see you here again. I am happy that you've been a part of that historic event. I wish I was there, it rekindle memmoir of "Macho" - our bug back then. People just can't keep to them selves their amazement about this car, for all we know its "the greatest car ever built", and they can't simply put this one rest.
