Final Edition 924/1500




Saturday I made a big decision: I bought a new VW Beetle hardtop - Final Edition - mine is 924th out of the 1500 created. I'll be getting it when I return from Germany the end of this month.

I was able to transfer my license plates, which made me happy.

My red 1998 VW Beetle has been a great car! I never dreamed of owning it as long as I had, but it just goes and goes. To date it has 111788 miles.

Congrats on the new car, Donna! You've earned it. What color?

Rachel, the color is robin's egg blue with the black roof that resembles glass. It's the hard top I wrote about on April 2, titled "Mixed Emotions." It's not only the "Final Edition," but it is from the "limited edition" collection.

I LOVE that color and would choose the same if I could have a Beetle! I would get a convertible top and cream colored leather...

Maybe someday, when I don't have a stroller and three carseats!

The convertible "Final Edition/Limited Edition" has white leather interior and a white leather top.

I have to admit I'm a bit sad to hear that you're letting your true-blue (er - red) dependably-faithful bug go... Tthat you'd consider bailing on her so quickly (it was just getting "broke in" - at least my 25 year old Camaro had rust on it, and the heater-core was shot). Oh well, the way it goes sometimes.... I hope she gets a good home, by someone who will take as good care of her as you have....

Hava-safe / fun trip!
But don't forget to come back, 'k?

Bless ya!
