Happy Dance Fridays: Beetlebugs

I have always loved Volkswagen Beetles. There is something about that shape and smiling grill that always makes me do an internal happy dance.

The red convertible ones are my favorite. They evoke a sense of fun and freedom. They harken back to a time when love flowed freely and peace was not only the cool way to say goodbye, but was also the goal of the day.

For a long time, it was my goal to own a Beetlebug, as I call them, so a few years ago, when it came time to buy a new-to-me car (I refuse to buy brand new), I decided it was time to live the dream.

As much as I love the red ones, I thought red would be too flashy for me. Plus, I tend to speed a bit, and I’ve read that red cars draw the attention of the police.

No red Beetlebug.

As much I love the convertibles, I knew having one wouldn’t work for me. Since I can’t be out in the sun, I would never let the top down. Plus, I was worried about having a soft top car in the rain or snow.

No convertible Beetlebug.

I decided upon a 2004 silver, low mileage Bug.


I love driving my car. It always makes my day to pass a fellow Beetle driver who honks their horn or flashes me a peace sign and a smile.

The car has never given me any real problems.

Happy dance!

Earlier this year, I finally finished paying for my Bug.


Even though the car is paid off, the car is still running without a problem (Knock on wood.)


Why are you doing your happy dance today?
