Until last year Mexico manufactured old style VW bugs brand new (it is apparent if you have ever been there, quite a few cars are bugs). My friend's dad bought him one of the final run models, complete with all the upgrades (a CD player, no AC) when he was in Mexico last summer, thinking "how sweet would it be to have a brand new beetle when I get home." Problem is that because of US emission and safety standards, he could not take the beetle back to the states. We tried to think of all sorts of ways to get it across the border, switching VINs, etc., but in the end he found a buyer in Mexico. When I returned from Vallarta, I was sunburned and surprised to find him w/o a car but with a shitload of cash:
Thought this would be a good story to share with the pub. Cruising around Guadalahara in that little car packed tight in the back seat seemed extremely appropriate.
