My Green Bug

A few of you have asked about my Green  Bug so here is a picture similar to my bug. When I saw the new bugs I had to have one!  Mine was a 2001 Green with Tan interior! We tend to get a new car every few years, so I no longer have her. I also had a 1972 Baby Blue Bug. :)

Since we are talking Green Cars, it also brought to mind, my second Car when I was 17 was a 1968 Fiat 850 Spider  
similar to the one below, except it was more of a lime green, mine was a convertible too. The only problem with this car was in didn't run half the time. :(

Speaking of Convertible's I have owned 3, the Fiat, a VW Cabriolet and my Current Car below, my BMW, my Baby 

I also name my Cars, LOL but, that's another story!

Let's hear it for the VW! I had my first in 1961, a black bug. Then a red bug in late 60's with a few larger station wagons through child rearing years. In 2001 I purchased the car I drive today ... a black Cabrio. I love my car! I bought it in Orlando, Florida, it made the trek out here to Bend, OR and I have promised it to a grandchild one day!

Oh I love that Spider.

I am a car namer too. Well, until I got my current car). Guess I need to get around to naming him.

Ok! So, I too, had a 1972 VW Bug, in you guessed it! Baby Blue! It was my first car, which I painted cherry red after only a few months of driving it. Now, mind you - at this point, the car was already 26 years old - so it wasn't in the best condition, but I had so much fun spending money on that little guy. After college I got a BMW, not a convertable - a 325i, which I promptly returned at the end of the lease - I wasn't too fond of the maintenance costs. LOL! I'm very happy now in my VW Toureg, but it is time for a change ... perhaps green could be in my future!

Wow. You must be really cool to have those cars. Convertibles are always fancied by women since the 1960's. But for those who are feeling a little adventurous dreams on driving and owning a truck, which is somewhat admiring. Your latest car is a sweet ride, btw.
