The New (new) VW Beetlve vs Old VW Beetle

What do you think of the Newest version of the VW Beetle?

It’s definitely and improvement over it’s first makeover, I still love the old Beetles and think the lastest version lacks some of my favorite details like the chrome accents and the new front bumper design is quite bland.

VW seems to be doing away with their signature round headlights, but all and all the newest Beetle is something to look at!

Garden of Delight

I might not see this in the rose parade but I wouldn’t mind in my driveway. If you haven’t been converted to a flower child yet just feast your eyes on this awesome VW van.  I’m guessing it would do well down here with all our humidity and rain. Maybe someday after the Peacemobile drives her last highway I’ll get around to doing this.

Getting ready to hit the highway again, the Peacemobile has been doing well other than the ac isn’t blowing anything but hot air, nothing to unusual for a VW so I hooked up a fan and put some drinks in the electric cooler. While I was looking under the hood I found out why the heater was blowing cold in the winter the previous own disconnected it, okay not a problem living in the south for now. I’ve driven over 18,000 miles in our Peacemobile with a smile on my face, so glad she joined our family a year ago this week!

Behind the Wheel of My VW

Just a quick update: the weather has been amazing so the Peacemobile has been on the road this winter actually she’s given us 23,000 happy miles in the past 6 months, I don’t think she’s see that much highway in years! We’re still planning our summer road trip and I won’t go into a rant about oil companies it was bad enough they covered our beautiful beaches here in AL with oil, so let’s hope I can afford to keep her keeping on.

Happy Weekend Cruisin’

Welcome 2012

Happy New Year! and with what might be the last day of warm weather here as I must get the peace-mobile ready for winter or should I say hibernation. She is an awesome vehicle and I can’t image storing her for 3 months but with the temp dropping into the 20′s by Tuesday there isn’t enough blankets on Earth to keep us warm and having another vehicle  equipt with heated seats and well heat I don’t think it’s a hard decision to make especially when you start to hear the chattering of little teeth, but she won’t be forgotten we are already planning some great adventure in peace-mobile for the spring and summer, the kiddos and I can’t wait! …….Or should I say GRAND adventures! Hint, Hint.

Peace out peace-mobile until Spring.
