My neighbor's yellow car

A sweet old lady and her yellow car, that's our neighbor. Most of our parents had a Beetle at some point in their lives, mine did! We don't see many nowadays, but I remember when I was little and my sister had her first car, it was a 60's Beetle, around 1978 I believe. Boy, did we have fun!!! I was only 9 then...

It's been a fun week, I had never paid much attention to yellow but it is everywhere! Yesterday, I counted six yellow houses in one block! To see more yellow pictures, please visit Anna's blog.

WOW, that brings back memories for me too! My parents had a bug as well in the 70's...I think I was about 5 when they had one in 77. And my hubby and I have had Volkswagons as well. Love them! Great shot and of course the color is wonderful! ;)

Cris, my father had also beetles in the 70's. It was the most popular car in Brazil, but it was an olive green car. Then he had a dark red, (like wine red). Both of them bring memories for me, too! My younger sister always wanted to go at the back room, a litte small compartment for luggage!

My son's first car was a yellow VW - a little brighter than this - thanks for a sweet memory!
I like the angle you took - reminds me of Anna's shots!

Your sweet little neighbor lady is very 'with it' :) I love the bright yellow bug. My second car was a bright red VW Beetle. Used, of course :)
