'70 Volkswagen Beetle
Rub-a-dub-dub two girls and a Bug! It was 1972 and I bought my first car, a 1970 VW Beetle with automatic stick shift. Color was powder blue. One small problem: I didn't have my driver's license yet. My father had never believed in teaching any of the females in our family to drive, including my mother and two sisters. So I enrolled in a Drivers Ed class at the local community college, practiced and got my license on my second attempt. Finally, I could drive the Bug on my own. My 3-year-old daughter, Diana, strikes a pose as she helps Mom get the Bug cleaned up.
