I've got at least five to go! I think by the time the moment arrives, I will finally have moved out of my Volkswagen phase. Next car will be bigger/taller...maybe even a truck. OR run on electricity. I'm not sure yet.

I *do* however want the new VW Bully, which will probably end up looking completely different when it finally comes out in late 2013. "Tattoos are the mullets of the aughts." - Mike Naimark
Oliver Scrapple Since: 20.6.02 From: Kolob Since last post: 6 days Last activity: 18 hours # 5 Posted on 21.4.11 0306.06 | Instant Rating: 1.71 Agreed. I'd rather own a classic 50s or 60s variety Beetle. Originally posted by PaulKTF They took all the character right out of the car, IMHO.

The lines actually better reflect the classic Beetle than the 'New Beetle' did. I've owned both...my first two cars were '74 Super Beetles (actually I've owned nine VW's total), and I had a 2000 New Beetle GLX for several years, which was my favorite car I've ever owned. I just loved that thing. I've moved on to a small SUV (Nissan Rogue), which has been wonderful...almost ridiculously reliable. Still, I like the looks of the new one and look forward to sitting in one, maybe even driving it. I'd like to add a coupe to my garage for the occasional fun vehicle. I'm also interested in the Fiat 500, though, which I sat in at the Minneapolis Auto Show this year. (edited by Mr Heel II on 21.4.11 1009)

I guess I can see how the current model isn't quite "masculine".

I googled 2012 Beetle and that was one of the first images that popped up (I'm guessing what I posted was a concept). Either way, both models are certainly less feminine-looking
On a related note, did you ever see the Saturday Night Live sketch featuring a fake commercial for "Bad Idea Jeans".
