2012 Volkswagen Beetle: I'm Just Not a Beetle Guy
August 07, 2012
The title says it all. Beetles of any vintage never did anything for me. Maybe they're too "cute" or quirky for my tastes. What I do like, however, are Karman Ghias. Perhaps this has to do with me being a Get Smart fan as a kid, but really, I've always been drawn to that particular design. So have you guessed where I'm headed with this? Click through to see.
I put this together in a bit of a rush, so it's not quite up to my standards. That said, I think it gets my point across. If I had a whole day to fiddle with this, I'm sure I'd be a lot happier (on a lot of levels).
Underneath that photoshoppery is an Audi TT. In my mind, however, I'd want this to be a mid-engined car. How hard could it be, right?
What do you think? Should VW revive the Karman Ghia?
