2012 Volkswagen Beetle Long Term Road Test

2012 Volkswagen Beetle: Big Time Nostalgia

December 01, 2012

I've owned two bugs and a bus so I'm a sucker for the way VW keeps harking back to earlier decades. I liked those decades. And I liked those cars too, maybe because I could work on them with a screwdriver and a pair of pliers. 

All this nostalgia is hitting me because I saw this 2013 Beetle Convertible at the Los Angeles Auto Show. And now I'm lucky enough to be driving our 2012 long termer for a road trip for the next few days.
