Oh no... You know, what I just remembered? When the first VW Beetles came, I was dreaming of getting an apple green one some day. And then later I got an iPod mini that's almost the same color. So, there might be some strange connection...

Adam's got a VW Beetle but no iPod.

Isn't there anyone here at TW who has an iPod AND a VW??? We're not a very trendy bunch of music fans now are we!

I guess I'm too young to remember that there have been Beetles before these:

Re: You Know You Are the Average I-Tunes User When new [re: LadyGravedigger]  

The origins of the car date back to 1930s Nazi Germany. Adolf Hitler wanted private motorized transport to be widely available and commissioned engineer Ferdinand Porsche to produce such a vehicle. Some claim that this was based on a sketch that Hitler drew in 1932, a year before he came to power. Hitler decreed that this car should be capable of transporting two adults and three children at a speed of 100 km/h (62 mph), and that it should cost no more than a motorcycle and sidecar to buy. A savings scheme was also launched that would enable the common people to buy the car. However, the advent and aftermath of World War II meant that those who paid into the scheme never received their cars. Rumors said that the Beetle was originally designed for conversion into a makeshift armored car in times of war. Its style resembles a tankette without a turret or armor.

The Love Bug VS The Hitler Mobile new [re: Pablo-Picasso]  

It's pretty ironic given the Beetle's traditional association with flower power. I guess the other main thing to say about the Beetle is that it was the best selling car model of all time. I am not sure if the original model was ever completely discontinued as it was still being made in (I think) South America until at least the late 1990s.

Golf new [re: LadyGravedigger]  

I like the old Beetle better than the new one. The new one reminds me of a toilet.

The Volkswagen Golf is the prettiest VW ever. Each model looks cool and the Golf model has been around so long that I think it is taking the Beetle over on this level of popularity by now..
Just guessing.

Re: You Know You Are the Average I-Tunes User When new [re: Pablo-Picasso]  

Oh, yes. I've seen those old ones too. And now I know what got me confused. In Finnish spoken language the new ones are actually the first Beetles that are called Beetles. Those old ones were called "kupla Volkkari", which could be translated into "Volkswagen Bubble", "kupla" is bubble in Finnish and "Volkkari" is just a shortening for "Volkswagen". So, until today I haven't really thought about those older models as Beetles.

Indeed. And Adam has sat in it and listened to music from my iPod, so that should count as half a point extra.
