    I had a yellow VW Beetle back in the 1980s - great car, shame about the color. (Had an orange one as well - it preceded the yellow one).

    I had a '72 VW Super Beetle that was yellow. For a funny, silly-looking car like that, yellow works fine.

    My orange one was a Super Beetle. Unfortunately I had to trade it in to get the yellow Beetle as I could see the road if I looked down from the driver's seat. It also had a sun roof - yellow one didn't.

    I just happen to be a fan of VW cars. My current Golf has been going since 1985 on two different continents so I definitely got my money's worth on it! (It's silver though, not yellow).

    Did you crawl through the floor and sleep on the road? I hear that's the honorable thing to do.

    No - once I saw things had gotten that bad I started car hunting. Local VW dealer had the yellow one and I later traded it in for the Golf at the same dealer.

    But could he lift it? If he couldn't lift it, I don't care.

    I had a VW Rabbit like that once. Is that a common thing on VW cars? Views of the road the should not be possible?

    My road view was due to a rusted floor below the driver's seat. I did try to see if it could be fixed but the mechanic who normally worked on it said 'You can't weld to rust'. This would probably have been in the late '70s.

    it's an additional feature . If the car runs out of petrol you can run it on leg-power just like Fred Flintstone.
