hey, I miss that car!

cant beat a car that didnt have a functioning gas gauge, or spedomiter, or trunk, or shocks...etc...and all this when I had it as a 10 year old car!

and the front seat was a sofa! They dont make front seats like that anymore...

I shouldn't have gotten rid of that car...one day...someone will get millions from that thing!

I wonder if VW will buy this car. They bought a Royale in 1999 for a reputed $20 million.

Some people find this in a Garage left to them in a will. I find a half eaten pizza the last owner left. Where is the justice in the world .
