I usually do not reblog the posts that get freshly pressed (God knows they get enough attention as it is with the whole wp.com community checking out their sites: makes me so jealous!), but this one was very close to my heart. So much so, that I went on to reblog it.
Whilst I enjoyed the gender stereotyping and the marketing strategies which may have been considered to be disastrous in today’s world, I also enjoyed how beautiful the “Bug” is. Volkswagen is now making a foray into India with Polo (a car which I consider EXTREMELY generic and ugly) and some other sedans (Jetta amongst them catches the eye). However, there are few, if any Beetles to be seen on the road. But somehow, I prefer the old Beetle over the new one. Somehow, the new ones seem not-so-likeable. Blame my Vintage-philia, but I rather fancy the rusted ol’ yellow bug which once lay alone, isolated and uncared for in the garage of my uncle over the swanky, shiny progenies which sometimes I get to see in Kolkata.
Anyways, a freshly pressed post worth reblogging. Thank you wordpress.com for bringing it home!
And quite coincidentally, I went on a shopping spree today where I ended up buying 8 graphic tees, two of which featured vintage cars, one being the bug (to top it off, the tee was yellow!). Bite me, I am a little obsessed with vintage cars!
