I'm a bit of a classic car person, I suppose. I don't really like Beetles tbh but I think that most, but not all, versions are quite cool. I've never wanted one but I accept they are quite cool in their own pseudo-hippy, psychodelic way. I've never, ever, wanted to own one however.
I'd rather have an Imp than a Mini btw, it was a far more left-field choice back then (and now) but the Mini is still a cool tool too nowadays (it wasn't so much so IMO in the 70's/80's coz everyone had them even in motorsport so you looked a bit of a sheep if you rallied one). Not too many people seem to be able to distinguish beteween their own likes and cool though. Sorry, I know, it's as much a perennial bug-bear of mine as kb's diffusers and supercar premise.
Nostalgia isn't what it used to be.
