So I just got back from having dinner tonight at Sushi Maki. I open the menu, and after flipping a couple of pages, i see a picture of a VDub Bus. Seems like a Type2 49-67 bus, (looks like it might be a fried egg). I cant even eat without thinking about VDubs (literally) haha. I didnt know the japanese community also had a Volkswagen addiction? Maybe a "VW Fact" i never saw?

Very Interesting.. i had no idea. i was surprised when i saw that picture on the menu. Makes me wonder, how can they relate a volkswagen bus with sushi?

BTW, i think i annoyed my date talking about VDubs.. LOL. Oh Well, She better start getting used to it.

Not surprising considering that VW's were sold all over the world.

Looks like silhouettes of a cow and a goat. The cow is flashing a peace sign... probably happy you're eating fish! Laughing
