  • Photos of VW Beetles gets EVERYONE's attention!!

    Comment


    • Thanks for the comments guys – yep, everyone loves VWs!

      I wonder what it would be like to still run a daily driver VW bug year round on today’s roads? You still see a few around – we have one in our town that you see chugging around through the scorching hot summers and icy cold winters regardless.

      It seems just about every diecast manufacturer, new & old, has at least one VW bug and a bus in their lineup. The garage photos show lovely examples (in various scales) from Matchbox, Greenlight, Cararama and Schuco.

      • There are so many diecasts in1/64 ( or close to it) of Beetles, buses, vans, pickups, that I think it could support its own web thread here at DG.
        It would be a really good way to see from others which beetles we DON'T have.

          That reminds me, there was that time several years ago, when I left some sweets on the counter, and then I had a Beetle infestation....

            • Today at the garage, and inspired by Michael’s awesome post above, a couple of really bad VW jokes…

              Sure these have been done a hundred times before, but here goes…

              Ever go away for a couple of days, then come back home to find a bunch of dead bugs in your sink? I guess they fall in, then can’t get back out again:

                I’ve always been a bit of a sucker for any diecast that comes with extra bits and bobs to play with. Take for example this excellent TLV Toyota Livestock Truck, complete with 3 piggies!

                Trouble is, pigs being pigs, they are very intelligent and want to explore the garage.

                I mean, fair enough…they probably know more about cars than our head mechanic.

                Oh no! They’re in the showroom! Hope they don’t get poop on the Berlinetta!

                • Lol, pigs knowing more about cars than mechanics.
                  If it isn't a NASCAR diecast, chances are, I won't get it.

                  • OH! Wait till the boss sees the pigs in the showroom!

                    A GASSER occupies the 2nd floor??

                    Comment


                    • Gasser's been up on second floor for a while...dripping oil everywhere.

                      It's about time we changed the inventory I think.

                        How did I miss this? I sure got a laugh out of this one. LMAO. Pigs are smart however they are kind of animal-like when it comes to eating. If not feed they will start to eat on each other. Surly Babe wasn't one of these. Love that European blue truck.
                        Due to the recent budget cuts,
                        the rising cost of electricity, gas, and oil, plus the
                        current state of the economy, the light at the end
                        of the tunnel has been turned off.

                          Haha, those gave me a chuckle.

                          I think that maybe the bad VW jokes deserve their own thread...


                          The livestock truck and pigs sequence is great.... Orwell's Animal Farm maybe? If a pig could drive, what would a pig drive?

                            In reply to your question Michael....I think a pig might drive a PORK-lift?

                            Sorry....

                            • Can't think of any pig jokes. So i'll do an egg-cellent egg joke.
                              If it isn't a NASCAR diecast, chances are, I won't get it.
