They should hire you.

Actually in some ways this ugly little thing does make sense. As an auxiliary car on a farm, it would be useful. But the price looks too high for the time.

Ashton Summers Feb 12, 2013
Wonder how quickly you would be pulled over in this. "Sir, are you aware that you can't drive this piece of shit on the highway."
Dale Schroeder Feb 12, 2013
Oh my goodness, I actually saw one of these at a classic car dealer here a couple years ago but had no idea what it was. It looked better in red, I can say that much.

Beetle is faster bigger more parts looks better and if anything breaks you car explain to a real dealer
