VW Farewell

As previously mentioned I've been trying to help my Dad sell his '71 Beetle. Vaughn (my 6 year old). Is really smitten with it. He's tried to convince me we should keep it (I hate VW's). He's asked me for at least a dozen "last" rides.

He heard me talking to the new owners tonight and overheard that they will be taking it home tomorrow. Vaughn immediately got dressed from his bath and wanted a last ride (well he worked me for a ride before school tomorrow too but I knew we wouldn't have time). Once we got in the car he asked if there was any way he could drive and I explained he wouldn't be able to reach the pedals. We went on a short ride and he asked if he could sit in my lap and steer, something I've never done with him before BTW. He's gonna miss the car. He loves my '69 Charger too. He was just asking me a few days ago exactly what it would take to get it running.

What makes one person a gearhead and 2o others not? It's not being raised in a gearhead household, my older son and daughter don't have the bug.

I've heard loads of people speculate that the old car/bike hobby is dying. Vaughn's not having it.

Between your menagerie and mine, that kid's gonna inherit quite a stable if he wants it...
