Ever since the Volkswagen Beetle went on sale in the United States, it has been a hit among lots of different types of buyers. These cars are right at home in the city, country, or most notably, the beach. This happens to be one of those beach-going cars, and completes this look with a custom topical green coat of paint, roof rack with period-correct luggage, and the iconic big-logo chrome wheel covers. It is no surprise to us that this car comes with a backseat filled with various awards, trophies, and publications.
