Would I have Another?

I owned 3 VW vans.

I owned them at different times in my life.

I had a ’72 with the pancake engine.

That was the first car that I owned.

It was kind of a turd of a car.

I owned a 1967 split window….and a ’68.

Now I couldn’t afford one of these vans.

I couldn’t afford one…and that’s pretty good, because it keeps me from getting one.

I don’t know that I’d have another one….but….that being said, they are kind of cool.

They were more cool when they weren’t so “cool”, though.

They were cool when I could buy them for $500.

They aren’t so cool when they’re $10,000 dollars.

I guess that even if something is a turd of a car, if it’s “your turd” and you know and love it….with all its quirks and foibles, you still love it….then, to you at least, it’s cool.

Cool is what you know.

Why’d these buses have to get so expensive?
