Just got myself a new car over the weekend. I'll never forget the first time I saw the new updated Volkswagen Bug pull up next to me some 10 years ago. My heart got all warm and fuzzy because the first car I ever owned at 18 years old was a baby-blue Volkswagen back in 1975 that I drove down to Florida to start a new life.
Perhaps for that reason, I will forever connect VW bugs with youthful optimism and driving toward an uncertain new beginning. When I saw this silver bug on the lot of my local auto repair shop, I new I had to have it. I feel it's got a lot spunk--like me. The cancer-fighting chapter of my life is over. It look forward and leave the past behind. My new car is a great physical manifestation of: out with the old, in with the new.
