Beach Bum at Mid America Air Cooled Funfest

I was able to go to the Mid America Motorworks Air Cooled VW Funfest this weekend. It was great. I saw a lot of VW’s that were just sweet looking. My wife even decided that she would like a little Beetle convertible. Although, I think she’ll have to settle for a VW Thing, which she said she still wouldn’t mind. My favorite Thing was already posted over at The Classic Beetle.

VW Hawaiian Thing

This Thing is ready for a Hawaiian Beach. The monkey inside is wearing a lei, and although you can’t see it, the Thing itself is wearing a grass skirt on the front bumper. I wish I had a picture of that.

VW Beetle with a Surfboard

This VW Bug is just beautiful. I love the color scheme, and of course, I love the surfboard on the top of the Beetle. It even matches the colors.

Beach Patrol Dune Buggy

This Dune Buggy fit in perfectly with this years FunFest Theme, Fun in the Sun. It was honoring the Meyers Manx Dune Buggy, and the creator Bruce Meyers, who was in attendance. This Dune Buggy is ready to go out and work the beach.

    Did you see the microbus for sale beside the freeway? I guess they want about $5k for it. It is a 1977 model.

    5,000 for a bus is pretty good for what I’ve seen on The Samba. You can’t find these things in good shape for less than that usually.
