Kiefer Cottage goes rogue...

And buys a second vehicle. Who knew that's what people have these days!!  

What is it?

A 1980 VW Rabbit convertible.

Right now, it's not a convertible. It's merely topless.  You could say it's only wearing a G-string.  I know, this is a family-friendly website (sort of), so shield the little ones' eyes.

The cost?  Let's just say it's well under $1000.

This cute little thing has had a lot of work done to it, but Ryan said it was a miracle he made it back to the house. It reeks of oil and is now a bit damp since it was pouring down rain for some of the drive home (who knew it'd rain after weeks of almost nothing?).

This car isn't a daily driver, though.  At least not yet. It's for a top-secret project that shall be revealed soon, I promise.

In the meantime, revel in its adorable-ness.  Seriously, isn't it so cute???

FTR, I chose this car.  It's my main contribution to the project. So any dudes rolling their eyes, scoffing at this chick-mobile, well, you can kiss my patootey.


  1. So, does the top work? nk

    1. It hasn't got one. Just the frame. And the frame is in about the same condition as the rest of the car -- old and a bit rusty, but it works.

    2. We will have to purchase a new top. The frame is there and nothing else. Luckily, it's not too expensive to get another one.

  2. I want! Actually, my dream vehicle is a 1950's VW Westfalia, but your new guy is pretty cool too.

  3. Oh this is going to be a fun project, I can tell!

    So, if you appreciate sincerity, snark and, general praise how would you feel about a blog award?

    Yes, I have selected you for a Liebster! Stop by and pick it up!

  4. Hahaha One of those "I want that" kind of contraptions. Hey, it goes...doesn't it?

  5. saw your comment on MMS and thought yeap....seems like we have to pay for everything twice...and ticket stalkers seem to be ever where...we have to pay 10.00 each year just because we have a dog ....what they then started saying cats also....I wanted to say when the our lil town does something about the 10000000000 of deer....where you can't plant anything and trash has to be enclosed....yeap their is always something..

    Ok I ranted,,,,love this little car will have to come back and see what you do.....
