One of my dream rides is a VW Bee­tle convertible–old school, not one of the nou­veau style ones. I mean, those are fine and nice and all, but I just ache for the old ones. Click­ing through one of the local auc­tion house’s upcom­ing sale lists, I just saw not one but two, barely dri­ven, up for the tak­ing. Ryan brought me back to earth by remind­ing me that the cars would likely go for upwards of $20K, but I am hurt­ing for these. We could have match­ing con­vert­ibles! OK, I don’t know if that’s just gild­ing the lily, but one? Please, some­one? Can we reg­is­ter for the brown one and we’ll skip the kitchen stuff?
