A Tale of Two Beetles

In late 2001, and in hindsight, against my better judgement, I bought a new 2000 TDI New Beetle and put my 1964 'old' Beetle up for sale. Eeyore was in much better shape when I sold him than when I bought him, but at the time, I needed something a little more reliable.

During the couple of months before Eeyore sold, I had a chance to create the following photo essay, contrasting different design and styling elements of the two vehicles. My favorite is still the 'old' Beetle.
