The weather turned cool last evening. Just right for driving our favorite Beetle, a ’67 slightly custom Bug. I invited our daughter, Janeva Sulman, to accompany us to a Volkswagen meeting early this morning. She was excited to do so.
Janeva grew up in VWs from a very early age. She learned to drive them. She drove them to school, then to work after graduation from college. Today, she brought her big camera along for the ride and the subsequent meeting of some VW friends.
But, on the way there, she just could not resist snapping this photo of her mother at the wheel of “Baby.” I looked at the photograph, then turned to ask Neva if she enjoyed driving the car; as much as she appeared to be enjoying it in the picture. She assured me that she did.
What is it about a Volkswagen that gives such pleasure? I have heard numerous others say that they were at peace while driving their Volkswagens. Did the German engineers include that in their designs? They didn’t say—but WE know, don’t we!
