“Memories are the treasures that we keep locked deep within the storehouse of our souls, to keep our hearts warm when we are lonely.”– Becky Aligada

The scrap owner

It hasn’t been long since I bought my 1964 beetle, which I owned for 8days 6 hours and 18minutes ago. My mom even kept on telling me “you and your scrap car”.  Last Sunday, I asked my mom and my brother to escort me for a road trip, on the condition that we’ll use my “scrap car”. From Lipa City, it would take about an hour travel before reaching Anilao (taking Cuenca Route).

I’ve always been in love with VWs, no matter how old it may be. I even promised myself that I will not buy any other cars as long as I haven’t bought myself a VW. And darn! It took years before I found a beetle!

So there it was! I also told my brother to drive it just for experience. We left Lipa around 11am and reached our destination past 12pm. We weren’t in a hurry because my purpose was for a test drive only. My mom, of course was having doubts if my car would be able to reach Anilao.

I was no miracle, but for my mom it was! Guess what? She’s using it more often as I am. Every time, I see other people’s appreciation for my VW I can’t help but boast about it. How lucky I am, that it felt like winning a lottery 5times intense!

Bug keys!

The bugs 1st visit to Anilao!
The bug’s 1st visit to Anilao!

I bought this bug for  P40,000 only. YEAH! And so far I am very happy that I bought it. But then, I have to waved goodbye for the mean time, she’s going to the machine shop to scrip of all its rust this coming Friday as her first step for restoration.  It would take years, but I am so willing to wait for years to finish it.

      nahili ako sa car show, na-ignore ang beauty ng 04 beetle ko sa 1964.
