Beth was out on a jog when she spied a garage sale along her route. Beth has been more of a big car person over the years until she caught the VW Bug. Seeing that there were automotive parts in the sale, she stopped and had herself a look.
Eventually she spied a VW bumper beneath a table. Upon closer inspection, she realized that it was a rear bumper. And…not only so, it was a correct 1967 rear bumper with the correct over riders.
She asked about the bumper “under the tables”. It was “Oh, that one?” sort of a thing. Beth said that “…those goofy guys didn’t want that Volkswagen part mixed in with their American parts…” so they had put it under the table.
They told her “$25 dollars.”
Beth couldn’t get her money out quickly enough. She latched onto that bumper and headed home. Herr Schmidt soon was adorned in proper style. I approve, don’t you?
I asked if she felt guilty enough to go back to give the guys a little extra for the part. She just smiled her sly little Beth Smile.
