Volkswagen, not a car

On a beautiful afternoon in fall of 2012 I (once again!) walked around Tarpon Springs. I enjoy this place for several reasons. It feels Mediterranean to me and during every visit, I discover another little shop with plethora of unique, eye-candy items. And find myself surprised once again after the sales person tells me the store has been there for 26 years or so…

However, shopping wasn’t on my mind today so I only stopped at a few places – to say hello to a couple of store owners that know me well enough that they give me a hug every time I walk into their shop.

Today was a day to enjoy the outdoors, with my camera handy at all times – to snap photos of anything that catches my attention. And it sure did! This rusty, little, old Volkswagen van, parked right off the sidewalk. Opened windshields made me smile first. But I still kept walking.

And then I stopped in my tracks and turned around. There was a license-plate-like sign on the front of the rusty, saying, “It’s not a car, it’s a vintage Volkswagen.” That was definitely something worth a shot, so I snapped some.

And even though this vintage van might “not be a car” up to nowadays standards, it sure was a useful and reliable vehicle during its prime.
