Autumn Cruise

On a beautiful sunny day, I took the old "girl" for a ride.
She’s a 1973 1300 VW Beetle with 81th KM or 50,000 miles on the clock.
I only drive on sunny days and owned it since 1998. Not many left on the road even in Germany!

I'll bet they are something of a rarity there. Nice to see the old girl at home.

An impressive car!

It looks just like one I used to own around 1973 - what a great little vehicle it was!

Fabulous Autumn portrait of this classic ride. I learned to drive a stick in my dad's Beetle.

A beautiful photograph of an original beauty, I hope it runs forever!

Loved those Beetles - learned to drive in one. Not too many around here either. Great shot - sure looks in mint condition V
Hank Vander Velde25-Oct-2021 01:07
That car brings back memories. I had a 1961, 1964, 1968 and a 1972 Beetle. The last one my wife drove until about 1985.
Isabel Cutler24-Oct-2021 23:24
She look well tended.
Graeme24-Oct-2021 23:11
Your beetle is still looking in amazing condition, Tom. V
Pierre Martin24-Oct-2021 22:09

Carl Carbone24-Oct-2021 21:37
How cool! You've kept it in great shape.

I remember when they were everywhere and I miss seeing them; they are as scarce as hen's teeth here! Good to know you still maintain this beauty. Excellent shot of her. V
Philip Game24-Oct-2021 21:26
I remember ride-sharing to university back in early '70s in a Beetle which had no fuel gauge. The driver had to remember to check the fuel level by inserting a dipstick (and once or twice, she forgot...)
barbarajoy24-Oct-2021 21:03
This beautiful and iconic old girl has been cared for with love. She seems in immaculate condition for her age and is a treasure to own. I also had one once for many years but we parted company. How nice that you enjoy taking your girlfriend out for a drive on pleasant days, Tom. Superb autumn image too, of course. V
Tom Munson24-Oct-2021 21:01
Great car and capture, Tom. I was amazed how well they did in the snow.
Walter Otto Koenig24-Oct-2021 20:31
Looks like it's in great shape. Even has a Schiebedach. So nice with the autumn colors. "V"
Helen Betts24-Oct-2021 17:36
Great shot of this classic! I think the older Beetles were better than the newer ones. V.
globalgadabout24-Oct-2021 16:56
a reliable old character for sure, and a smarter choice than the electronicially overloaded models of today..
laine24-Oct-2021 16:54
I learned to drive in a VW....she looks lovely. V
Apostolos Tikopoulos24-Oct-2021 16:31
