If you've always wanted to buy a new Volkswagon Beetle, you might want to start shopping. Volkswagon announced earlier this month that they will stop producing the Beetle!

All those years of punching someone in the arm and shouting "slug bug!" will eventually be only a distant memory. And somewhere down the road, kids will watch "Herbie The Love Bug" and wonder what kind of crazy car he was. Sad.

I would love to have the car pictured here. And I would drive it, too. While wearing a colorful tie-dyed hat and great big sunglasses. That is exactly the person I strive to be.

I'll post photos when that happens. Stay tuned.
