Never thought I'd want to drive a Volkswagen until I saw this juiced up little Beetle convertible at this year's Detroit auto show. Well, as juiced up as it can be with 150 horse, LOL. Added a little of Flaming Pear's Aetherize filter for some "dream" effects.

    Absolutely stunning, Deb. Love the title too. I foresee more horses being added..
Wonderful application of effects, too. Hey, I could see ME driving this one...but not on the NJ Turnpike. I'm a wimp on that road...so I need a BIG footprint!

I used to have a beetle. Fun car. It was all customized and I left it parked at the old Playland in SanFrancisco while I took the bus to work and when I got back it was gone. I was on the bus to work the next morning and spotted it in a grocery store parking lot. It didn't like to start when it was wet (cracked distributor cap) so I guess whoever stole it decided to leave it. Talk about good luck, huh? Anyway, I love this one, too.
