    Vile Invention

    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.

    I'd consider swapping my Squareback for a 73 Fastback, would have to be stock though, no mods.

    Mine was orange and a bit rusty but not too bad, I have a photograph, yes a proper one, somewhere when I had it in around 1987. I will have to find it and scan. At least I kept my Beetle which I had bought a few years earlier and I still have after 32 years! I don't like selling cars, buying yes, selling not so.....
