Sightings: Kinda like UFOs only for VWs instead.

Post by bumblebuggy on Tue Oct 21, 2008 9:26 pm

I've been seeing a lot of unfamiliar VWs in the local area lately and I figured I start a thread to call out fellow enthusiasts and let them know they're not alone in the universe and we would like them to join us in our love of all things VW.

So I'll start off.


When: Oct 20 2008, around 3pm.
Where: GA-20/81 near I-75
What: Early bay window Westy bus. Deep Blue with a white top.

When we picked up our Westy in SC I followed a work in progress, beautiful, tan and white double cab on a trailer that got off on the hwy 53 exit of 85. He lost me heading into Winder.

The sign said "Make Offer", I said 5 bucks he said "no" so I can only assume that it's more than 5 bucks.

when: Nov 12th just before 11am.
what: pale blue Vanagon
where: Buford: turning on to hwy 20 east bound from Buford hwy north bound.

I think I have seen this one before up that way so probably local. Last time they waved at me but I only saw as I passed them going the other way, this time I didn't catch them due to the ridiculous number of traffic lights on that particular stretch of road.

Not in person, but saw a MexiBeetle on the big screen today. When you see James Bond in Quantum of Solace, a Beetle makes a brief appearance with James Bond in it. Suprisingly, it ISN'T destroyed but that must be because James isn't driving it.
