    Love the old bugs and buses. In my irresponsible youth I had a '58 bus that took me on many adventures (and cost me two rebuilt engines :rolleyes: )

    Remembers me the time my dad had a VW kubelwagen bought to some
    National Geographic reporters in the early 70s in Afghanistan. I wished I could keep it and fix it. Unfortunately he sold it 10 years ago.

    Here you go Nick!
    I was visiting my old college town and apparently there was a car show nearby. Saw a nice 356 I wasn't able to get a shot of, and no Corrado, sorry. :)

    Normally background like that would be distracting, but in this case it adds a lot of character to the shot.

    Thanks Dave. I took the pic in portrait orientation so I could get those colorful store fronts in the shot. The colors seemed to go well with the bus. What blew my mind was hearing how much that bus was worth --north of $100k!
