Adorable. I saw so many VW's in San Miguel de Allende while visiting. Brought back so many memories. A high school boyfriend had a VW Van and we camped in Florida for two weeks. Those were the days. smile
Ginnie Hart: Those were indeed the days, Robin, when life seemed so much simpler! smile Thank you.

I want one
Ginnie Hart: HA! I think we'll all be aging ourselves today, Adrian. grin
What a fantastic find! And presented with your exceptional flare!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, dear Elizabeth. To find this in a Dutch antique store was very weird, as you can imagine! smile

I don't know what Hang Ten is, but I do know this is a great shot. What a coincident, we watched, Chasing Mavericks last night.
This is the real Jay.....

Live like Jay and don't waste time.... (but try to stay alive)
Have a great weekend.
Ginnie Hart: Bedandt, MLMA. It WAS a coicidence that we watched "Chasing Mavericks" last night!

Hang Ten actually became a brand name for clothes and is about surfing, using all 10 toes to ride the surfboard: "Hanging Ten is a surfing maneuver and is considered[1] one of the most impressive and iconic stunts one can perform with a surfboard. Hanging ten is when the surfer positions the surfboard in such a way that the back of it is covered by the wave and the wave rider is free to walk to the front of the board and hang all ten toes over the nose of the board.[2] Usually this can only be done on a heavy longboard." (Wiki)
Hang ten Ginnie !
... i love this little beetle... what a find....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: The Bug, Peter (surely you know the difference!), and don't forget the surfboard. That's the "hang ten" part. grin
I love that VW
Ginnie Hart: I know, Michael. It was waiting to grab our heartstrings!

La première voiture de mes parents alors souvenirs... J'aime bien cette composition amusante sur cette vintage
Ginnie Hart: Thnak you, Marie. I have a feeling this brings back memories for all of us! And, of course, it's the surfboard that makes it Hang Ten! smile

ha - it's the faithful old VW ready for a weekend's carousing Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: Yup. You got that right, Chris. Don't forget your surfboard. smile
This is a gem Ginnie! I want the same one...
Ginnie Hart: Including the surfboard, Richard??? smile Merci.
Little Deuce Coupe?
Ginnie Hart: Oh, yes, Bill. The Beach Boys...here they come. smile
What a fantastic vw shot Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: Many thanks, Roland. It's fun for us old-timers, isn't it! smile

The Beetle was always my favorite car. This model is gorgeous. I wonder what they wanted for it? smile

You lived by the surfers for lots of years.
Ginnie Hart: Now I'm confused about what was the Beetle and what was the Bug! But in either case, yes, this brings back many memories from those California beach years, Ruth. smile
Excellent find and image, Ginnie! The title fits the era, but I'm laughing because I don't know the modern equivalent grin
Ginnie Hart: HAHAHA! The ways we age ourselves, Martin. Hmmm. I wonder what IS the modern equivalent!!! smile

Hi Ginnie, Hope you are keeping well! Lovely little VM, can I have it please smile?
Ginnie Hart: HA! I think we all want it, Sarito. grin And how nice to see you again. Thank you.
Perhaps the most iconic car ever, somehow conjures up carefree days. My daughter loves VW campers and they adorn many of her purchases.
Ginnie Hart: It never grows old, John, does it! smile Thanks.

The Beetle and the Bug are the same thing! smile
Ginnie Hart: That's so strange, Ruth I thought the Bug was the original and the Beetle was the newer design? But "The term "Beetle" was the name given to the Volkswagen Type 1 by the public. It was until the late sixties of last century that the term "Beetle" was adopted by the manufacturer for marketing and promotional purposes in the US market.
There is no difference between the VW "Beetle" & VW "Bug"." Oh well.
Robin is right. There are many VW Bugs in Mexico. I loved them.
Ginnie Hart: All the cars that are junked in America get fixed into working order by the Mexicans, Mary! That's quite a legacy, I'd say. smile
all set for the weekend I see smile nice composition
Ginnie Hart: Yes, Ayush. Let's go! smile
This would be the perfect gift for a surfer of a certain age who back in the day actually owned a VW beetle like this, Ginnie. What a wonderful find!
Ginnie Hart: I so agree, Beverly. I would have bought it if I had known such a person. smile Thanks.

Well, it was either a Beetle or a split-screen VW camper that the dudes liked.
Ginnie Hart: Oh, yes, Alan. Those were the days! smile
vive les vacances de 1970 ,good day
Ginnie Hart: Those were the days, my friend, I thought they'd never end! smile Merci.
I need a long holiday so bad now!
Ginnie Hart: I'd grab this for you, LC, if I could!
That's quite a nice little item which I would enjoy having on our hearth.
Ginnie Hart: It's fun, Brian, isn't it! smile

Last year sometimes, I got hold of the 'Herbie' series and enjoyed it.

It is not so bad to age yourself, Ginnie. We all know that you turned 45 last year.
Ginnie Hart: HAHAHA! You can fool some of the people some of the time, Louis. grin
Ah, Ginnie I love this. The icon of Cornwall!
Ginnie Hart: It's fun, Pauline, isn't it! smile
See these old VWs on the motorway heading to Devon and Cornwall, some look like they will never make it
Ginnie Hart: HA! But they do, don't they, Mick...over and over again. They never quit.

Fantastic miniature car collection, stunning colors
Ginnie Hart: I love stuff like this in miniature, Pat. Thanks.
looks like a very cool antique shop
Ginnie Hart: It was over-the-top cool, Hollie, if you want to know the truth. You could hardly turn around, there was so much "junk." smile
I know what hang ten means also, so were are not alone...
Ginnie Hart: We're both aging ourselves, then, Larry. grin
love this Ginnie! fantastic!
Ginnie Hart: Many thanks, Ronky. This was fun.
They don't make those cars anymore... sad
Ginnie Hart: Not like that, Sudipto, for sure!
Antique pix are fun to see and take eh Ginnie?
Ginnie Hart: Oh, yes, Jacquelyn. One of my favorite things to capture. smile
