The Beetle

If there is one word that I can use to faithfully describe what Volkswagen beetle cars really are, then it would definitely be durable. In fact I can still name a couple more adjectives like hard, and elegant, and probably many more, if I just put my mind into it. That is how I love my Volkswagen.

Do you want to know about what happened to my first ever car, which was of course, a Volkswagen? Well apparently it is still with me today and is none the worse for wear. I use it every chance I get, especially on weekends when I get to go out with friends.

It is really very cool having one in this day and age, as it sure attracts much attention, especially on all the younger generations who are not very much familiar with it. I do take care of the car and maintain it religiously, so maybe they think it’s a new design or something. Never do they know that this car is way much older than they are.

This car is very durable and very hard. Now why do I say that? Well if you really know your cars then you will know what I am saying. It was not called a marvel of German engineering for nothing. It was touted as a people’s car when it was first made and boy did it lived up and even surpassed all the expectations on it.

Its frame is made up of metals that are so thick that its thickness is probably three or four times the thickness of the metals in the bodies and frames of cars today. If you punch it directly, you probably will not even dent the damn thing, and it will probably damage your hands much more extensively than you to it. That’s a lesson I learned the hard way back when I was young and I have had the sprained fingers to show for it.

You really would not want to be in a car accident with it, even a minor one. Your car will be crushed if you happen to be in the receiving end of a collision with one of these cars, and you can trust me on that. Your car will be mangled if that ever happened and the Volkswagen would just have several scrapes on its body paint, just like what you experience when you have peeling fingernails, like what is describe at http://www.healmyfinger.com.

It could also serve as a great topic of conversation with other people that are not really familiar with it. Just open your front hood and see the people’s bewilderment of what ever happened to your engine, which they obviously expect to be there in the front of the car.

Well that’s my buggy and I love it. I was thinking of making it my everyday car but I have to fix its interiors first, as it has no air conditioning to speak of and the seats are as hard as the exterior of the car. I imagine using it regularly till I am old, or at least until I have my own family, that is.
