I did custom delivery for a while, and zig-zaged all over the country. I've seen them several places. Some were done better than others.

Default Re: VW Bug made into giant spider outdoor art

I am thinking of building one for my front yard. My property has big bushes so everybody driving by would see it, but I would not be able to see it from my kitchen. (they give me the creeps)
Hebster I am with you. They give me the willies.
but I want one!

Why do you have to "put your two cents in,"
but it's only a "penny for your thoughts"?
Where's that extra penny going to?


Just remember saying I'm sorry and appologizing are the same thing.
Unless you are at a funeral.

Ya.. Thats local. I'm In Reno.

I used to know where that bug was. But they recently moved it and I don't know were. I remember another one when I was young. It was behind a barn. I think it was the Baja style. But that barn and farm for that matter has been turned into a strip mall.

There's one outside the back gate of ramstien airbase in germany. Been there for years. If memory serves, it sets in the middle of a turn about... (traffic circle)

Yup, used to drive one of those, a '62 model I believe. Had a 2180, six speed and eight leg drive. Worked great in heavy traffic (kinda gave me a leg up on the other commuters, you see).
