I passed this gorgeous Carmengia on a walk through Baltimore. In a bright pastel green, it reminded me of spring on one of the first days the temperature (finally) reached above 60 degrees. I've always been a VW fan, dreaming of one day driving an old Bug, Carmengia, Cabriolet or Thing. My dad has owned 13 Volkswagens over the years in several different models. I dug up the old photo at the end of this post of him lifting me into our VW Bus when I was 2 years old, in my white lacy bonnet on Bond Street in Fells Point (Baltimore). After close examination, I'm pretty sure there's a a trail of dog poop behind me in the photo.
