old enough to have all-steel and chrome bumpers... This might be the fate of many a diesel Volswagen
Welcome to all. I began blogging Retained-Images in 2004 at My-Expressions.com. It is gone now.

When Volkswagen had such buffers, they were called here as an America model. That car seems to be up until 1970. Soon it will not be if it gets rusty.

@Jypyä Pop: I believe the US started requiring "5 mph bumpers" in 1973 or 1974. Around that time, manufacturers started using shock absorbers, rubber strips and pads, and other ugly and barely functional attempts to comply. So your time estimate is close, but perhaps might be off by a couple of years.

This point of view makes it look so large! I like the tones.

It is difficult to understand why this car has been left there to rust.
Great capture and light on the subject and trees.

A great capture of this vintage Beetle! Surprised to see all of its windows intact.

A great find! It looks like one of the original Beetles! Beautiful image!

@Elaine Hancock: This one most likely dates to the mid- late- 1960s. The earliest VW bugs had a lower roof with a smaller windshield. I think turn signals came in about '62 or '63. But thanks for your kind words.
