My new ‘rig’….

As long as I can remember my dream car has been a White Convertible Beetle!  Nope not the beautifully redone model – but the vintage one!  Always wanted it but never had it…sigh, maybe someday.
But I am excited to share with you that I did get a new rig!  So long to the “mom car” I’ve had to drive for the past twelve years!  I’ve been eyeing this car for quite awhile & excited to share it now sits in my driveway!  Nope ~ I won’t be taking it off road, just the typical drop kids off at school then head to Starbucks and then to Costco still kinda car, but I will say its a little fun to drive it with all the possibilities!
But will still wait for the ‘someday’ of my sweet idea of owning a “vintage white convertible beetle”! To see where else I am linking to this week – please check my “Cottage Links” label…xoox, tracie
PS - Fishtail Cottage is now on Facebook

Hi girl I had a Jeep a few years back and so miss it, I would love to get a Jeep Commander My friend has one and I love it.
Now I have another friend with the Rubion. I think I could give my car up for another jeep anyday, then I think hmmm! but I do love my car, I think I would need both!

You are so blessed girl! I love that it is white :)

Good for you!! Love the "bug"!

Being a VW girl (I have a Jetta) I would have preferred the bug myself but a Jeep is a real statement in itself.
Looks like a nice new shiny vehicle Tracie, enjoy!

Welcome to JeepLand!

It's not a car, it's an adventure.

Love it...both really. Would love to trade in my old suburban but can't give up the space. Treat it like a storage unit sometimes.

Cool ride! My first car was a bug convertible, a '65... loved it! Hope you get one someday...just remember to put the top up in rainstorms (can't tell you how many times i screwed that one up when i lived in florida!)

Those old jeeps just keep going and going and going, don't they? sigh...it will sure DO until your DREAM CAR can be found!

My first roommate had a white VW convertible and we rode all over in that- It was a 1970 model, I think...xo Diana
