YAK Car Pic of the Day

When I first saw the new VW Beetle last year (not to be confused with the VW New Beetle of ten years ago), I thought the shape looked vaguely familiar (aside from the obvious), but couldn’t quite put my finger on it. Until I came across this red one on Grand Island a week or so ago, sitting at this angle, wearing those small hubcaps — it’s the reincarnation of the 1960 Volvo PV544 (below). Or close enough for me to finally put it to rest.
