CC Outtake: Just A Cool Old Beetle

My Uncle Dave, who previously brought us the North Platte Bronco, once again brings us cell phone pics of a cool old car, and really, who doesn’t love an old Beetle?

Last week he was at the Ace Hardware in Iowa City, and on the way back to the car, spotted this late ’50s or early ’60s (update: it’s a ’62) VW in the parking lot. Yeah, it’s not a split window or oval window, but it’s still an early one, with those chrome overriders, canvas sunroof and classic domed VW hubcaps. Good for the owner, to use his Curbside Classic for hardware store runs!
