      I just showed this to my wife....THIS is what a drop top is supposed to look like. It's PERFECT! I'm striving to make her's (Galactic Blue Metallic) pretty similar in stance and attitude.

      Well done sir.

      Just bumping this to the top. A lot of these pictures are dead, so if possible, could people update their photos. It would be nice to keep this around as a resource.

      Expenses in F1 have gone down since the 1960s because teams don't need an extra pit crew to help the driver carry around his balls when he is not in the car.

      Boyfriend works for VW, and from what I understand the 2012 Beetle's lug pattern have changed to match some of the newer models like Passat, (I think.) So you'd have to get adapters to make them fit! The retro piece is a hub cap cover that clips on.
