OK, leave the house and go to a movie theater and get a pic of your VW with a BumbleBee movie poster in the background.

I took my daughter to see it again and they still have the posters outside.

The Bumblebee action figure was my Christmas gift from my kids...But, with the current Oval prices, no way in hell am I driving it over salted-roads & besides, it''s January so, Summer is right around the corner. ...Right?

I could supply an older picture of that but not a current one. Not sure if that counts.

Since the subject has come up, maybe a refresher of the rules and spirit and intent is in order.

o HAVE FUN!!!

o The point of the game is to get out and drive so most of the challenges should be something you might have to drive to get completed. Doesnt neccessarily have to be though. ie your vw with your dog/pet in it.

o If a challenge has was previously not completed, it can be completed and posted at any time, however you will not be able to come up with the new challenge.

o Once a new challenge is up try not to use old photos to complete. Go out there and drive! Not saying you cant use old photos but lets not make it a habit.

o After 50 challenges a challenge may be repeated but the same photo may not be used if completed by the same person.

o Challenges do not have to be VW related and are not limited to specific VW vehicles. Some of us also have newer VW's and some of the challenges might be hard for some people ACVW to complete so using your watercolled VW is ok.

o If you are just making a post or comment and not completeing the challenge; list the current challenge at the end of your comment that way no one has to scroll through to figure out what current post is.

Per rule 4, oprn's submission is legal though discouraged.

CURRENT CHALLENGE: Your VW being towed

Awesome!!! Cool shot with the BumbleBee. I forget that most places are backwards from Florida. We drive our Bugs in the winter and not so much in the summer. Cool

No problem! I didn't really expect it would and a current picture pursuit is much more fun to do.

It actually was taken 2 minutes before posting it but, also just had 4"+ of snow... so I wasn't about to throw the battery in & wake it up from hibernation yet

Ok, I'll change it and make it a bit more fun WITH an incentive!,

Current Challenge: YVW in front of a Police Or Fire Station.

...AND...

For the incentive, If if you are a first responder & in full uniform with you or your crew in the picture (Police, Fire, EMT etc... whatever) OR, for the rest of us, if you deliver 1 dozen doughnuts to any first rerponders sect.. I will send that person one of these free of charge (provided you're in the U.S.) if you would like one for your VW.

If I wasn't so lazy I could get out the tow bar and take a fresh one! In fact I could hook the tow bar on the sand rail, put it on the hitch at the rear of the Manx copy, put the second tow bar on the front of the Manx copy and hook it up to the Subaru Forester and take them all for a ride around the ranch for a photo op.


But... it's -14 with 4" of snow and... that wood stove and a cup of hot chocolate are calling my name!

Reading on that picture on this site and found this:
The VW Beetle belonged to one of the people living in the block of flats across from the recording studio. They tried to have it moved but the owner was on holiday so they just left it there. After the album was released, the number plate (LMW 281F) was stolen repeatedly from the car. In 1986, the car was sold at auction for 2,530 and in 2001 was on display in a museum in Germany
