    My new ride (non-Buick material inside...)

    Well I wasn't planning on getting another beetle, but I fell in love with this one when I saw it. I've noticed that people either hate it or love, mostly the latter though. This is by far the most attention getting car I've ever owned and it is an absolute blast to drive. Hopefully I'll have...
