Brian Roberts- 1968 Volkswagen Beetle
It's not your father's Volkswagen. Well, actually it sort of is. Brian Roberts, 24, bought his classic navy Bug a few months ago in part because his father owned one when he was Brian's age.
"It's kind of a cool little car," says Roberts. "It turns heads wherever you go."
It's also a hot car, i.e., no air conditioning. Roberts is very forgiving of his vehicle's warts. "It's not real fast; it doesn't stop on a dime. You have to be patient."
On the other hand, it gets about 35 miles per gallon. "I'm not complaining about that at all," says Roberts.
And everybody loves a Punch Buggy. "That's another cool thing," he says. "I see people punch each other when I drive by."
