I like new yellow best, so streamlined
but old yellow is a classic

great post

VioletSky said...

Dianne: the 'old' yellow doesn't look very yellow when seen with the 'new' yellow!
It is more streamlined, but I still think I prefer the classic bug.

Quilt Works said...

Cute! Clever post and those Bugs are so cute on the streets!


My contribution is Window onto fall

Lorac said...

Punch buggies yellow! No punch backs.

VioletSky said...

Stacey: thanks for visiting. and yes, I thought this would be fun!

Quilt: both bugs are cute; I've never actually been in a newer version.

Lorac: quick off the mark, aren't you?

chubskulit said...

love the new yellow!

To start the week, I am sharing our walk in the park last weekend.

VioletSky said...

chubskulit: it seems the new yellow is ahead as the favourite!

Speedcat Hollydale said...

HA! ... the old one sure faded out. Amazing that this car still looks so similar to it's older version. Seems like most owners are women, and they have a flower in the dash holder ;-)

Hello from Minnesota!

Joops said...

I haven't seen many of those these days..

I would like to share our Mellow weekend

The Green Stone Woman said...

Hey, that's very good! I so like the new yellow, car and all. I wouldn't mind that parked in front of my apartment.

VioletSky said...

Nora: it would look bright and cheery in your driveway.

VioletSky said...

Joops: the old yellow ones are quite rare, but the new yellow seems to be the most popular colour of choice.

Speedcat: that stupid daisy is de rigeur! I don't think the older models were ever that brightly painted.

quilly said...

I'm partical to the older ones!

Spiderdama said...

Very nice.. I would have had such a car:-)
(Ps: Yes, my photo is flame from oilplatform)
Have a nice week

Carletta said...

My son's first car was an old beetle and it was as bright yellow as it could be.
I'd love to have one of the new ones.
Great shots and perfect for MYM!
Round The Bend.

VioletSky said...

Quilly: yay, another 'original' fan. I also like the muted colour of the old yellow, the new one is way too bright.

Spiderdama: I always wanted a beetle, mostly because it was so different. one in baby blue...

Carletta: you'd have to get that flower power thing to go with it - and here the personalized licence plates are also popular!

Magical Mystical Teacher said...

Volkswagen Beetle
painted in yellow—old or
new, very mellow.

Anne said...

Yay, i tried riding this one before..cool...Kindly take a look at my yellow bins entry here.

VioletSky said...

MMT: :)

Anne: but did you try fitting 12 people into one as a stunt?

Stephanie V said...

I remember riding in an old yellow beetle as a kid - it was new then and I was so impressed!

VioletSky said...

Stephanie: and it is a car that everybody turns to look at as it drives by.

Marice said...

VioletSky said...

Marice: that's great - when she grows up, she'll have an innate fondness for these cars.

storyteller at Small Reflections said...

Kewl visual comparison! I drove one of those OLD yellow bugs for more than a decade and LOVED it!!!
Hugs and blessings,

Stine in Ontario said...

Delightful comparison between the two.

VioletSky said...

Storyteller: how wonderful!

Stine: I thought of this MYM as soon as I saw the old one!

From the Heart of Texas said...

Love it! I wouldn't mind driving either one. Very clever Mellow Yellow Monday post.

AmyR said...

I prefer the old yellow, I like subdued.

Carolyn Ford said...

I guess we go for BOLD colors these days! Nice comparison and post!

Manang Kim said...

VioletSky said...

Texas: thanks
and no, I wouldn't mind driving either, either!

AmyR: I think it stands out on its own without screaming "I'm yellow"!

Carolyn: anything to find our cars in the parking lots...

Manang Kim: I'm glad, and you're welcome.
