VW Beetle

What is it about yellow vintage cars? It is the color of upbeatness and cheeriness... And yet, seeing those cars on the streets, sticking out like sore thumbs, vintage in various states of decadence, a reminder of a time gone by, of frivolousness never to be recaptured again (assuming it existed in the first place). A pure case of carheology in yellow.
