YAK Car Pic of the Day

Back in the day people would complain that the VW Beetle’s trunk couldn’t hold more than a loaf of bread and a quart of milk, so in the early 1970s VW leapt into action and came out with a new, improved model: the Super Beetle. Which was capable of holding two loaves of bread and a gallon of milk. Hah! I may be under-exaggerating here, but not by much. The Super Beetle lasted only from 1971-75 for the sedan, a year longer for the cabriolet; the regular Beetle, in the U.S. at least, disappeared not long after. This nice-looking green Super was seen one day last week in downtown Niagara Falls.
