Thursday, July 17, 2008 ... Volkswagon, Redux

Sleek? You betcha. Remember, the definition of sleek, having trim graceful lines. Here's trim, as an adjective, from Merriam Webster Online: exhibiting neatness, good order, or compactness of line or structure. Need I say more? OK. I can't help myself. Graceful--pleasing or attractive in line, proportion, or movement.

You're with me now, I feel it.

Wow. Husband and I each had a VW when we married in 1973. He drove a '63 and i drove a '68. We LOVED them. He also had a newer "regular" car, but we loved the VWs. (He won the '63 VW when he was on an aircraft carrier in the Vietnam era. He won a poker game and that was his prize.

I saw where you mentioned a Triumph Spitfire in your past. Husband had one too, before I met him. He was in his 20s, it was black. He looked hot back then!

In high school, my best friend's dad had a VW dealership. We had a great time "out on the town" in any one of his VW beetles back then. They came in red, green, black, blue, and a few other colors I can't remember. It was the 1960s.
