CAR'S YEAR, MAKE AND MODEL: 1973 Volkswagen Super Beetle

"I LOVE MY CAR BECAUSE ... my father bought it new in 1973 and gave it to me when he quit driving at 90 years old (three years ago). I drove it up to its new home in Washington from Hollywood. When Flashback lived in Hollywood, she was often used in TV ads and movies. She still has a lot of spunk and is fun to drive."
