      Saw my second one on the road Monday I believe. Denim blue. Looks sharp.

      Drove by a bunch of dealers in my travels the last 2 weeks. Seen a few on lots, but not a ton.

      I'm not surprised I'm not seeing many. Production isn't really all that high from what I understand so its not like the dealers have the same number of Beetles on the lots as they do Jettas or Golfs, etc. Less to selll = less on the roads.

      Was coming south on Highway 101 in Ventura in my work truck, noticed in my rearview mirror a black Beetle. It was a Black Turbo Launch Edition like mine. Had paper plate from Barber VW the dealership in Ventura. Looks like VW is delivering non preorder Black Turbo Launch Editions to the dealers. My dealer now has two of them.

      You can clearly see at the lower '3 o'clock' position in the photo that my car is in the rack !
      I don't know how Bill from Utah screwed up the car's documents so badly when he sneaked
      into Puebla, that they wound up sending my car all the way back to Germany and had it
      put into their inventory, but he did ! P.S. - Do we have any secret agents in Germany that
      can ' finagle' my car onto a boat and brought to N.Y.? I would greatly appreciate it.

      Maybe Oprah Beetles will become collector's items. They are rarities. Maybe gaugeless Turbos too.

      PlatGrey looks better on the Beetle than other VWs, especially with those wheels.

      I would construct a sign that says, 'IS YOUR CAR A MANUAL STICK-SHIFT ?' This
      will save you a lot of unnecessary stopping for 'automatics'.

      It's easy enough to tell. The brake lights--usually on on automatics, usually not on on sticks.

      I was at Dixie&401 VW in Mississauga on Sunday and they have 4 on location.
      Two are going to the Toronto Auto Show, they are all wrapped up ( one light blue, one white )
      they have a sheet of paper inside with writing saying " Auto Show Car "
      They have one white one inside the dealership. Also one more done up beetle outside
      with sweet rims, looks charcoal grey.
      Anyone in the area, have a look.

      Yea, but if anyone see's you before you see them, they are going to high-tail it out of the
      area asap so there could be an armada of them in your town that just know the value in
      avoiding volcanic 'Lady Ghia'.

      I've been visiting the dealers and I've seen every color except Toffee Brown.

      I love my toffee brown one. I did pick the color sight unseen when I ordered it. I'm so happy with it. Very sharp in person.

      For Cleveland the color might more accurately be called 'Iced Toffee'.

      Your husband claims that the biggest eruption you ever displayed coincided
      with the one at Mt. Saint Helen's on May 18th, 1995. Could have just been a
      coincidence....but then again, who can say for sure ?
