No, but I can now drink Scotch without persecution for a few weeks.

Whatever you do, don't sit on a park bench near the elementary school.

I hope you don't drive a white Chevy van too.

If I had a van I would paint it like the Mystery Machine.

Well, why not something like that:



But personally, I prefer the classic painting style of a Samba more there:



Those T1 Samba cost used in good condition much more today as their current successor, T6... you can calculate with about 70000€-110000€ there. They are extremely popular and the robust construction means they age pretty well...

There's not too many bad things one can say about those old air-cooled VWs. Only gripe was that if you didn't stay on top of them they would rust, especially the heat exchangers. I think that was common among most auto finishes back then, though.

My dad had two Beetles when I was little, the second one was a 73 Super Beetle which he drove into the early 80s. He always regretted trading it in, it was in fine shape and according to him it was the best car he ever had.

Looks realistic to me. Maybe a bit fast.

The steering wheel is at the wrong angle.
