2014 VW Beetle Diesel Convertible.
In June 2018 I bought my retirement dream car. It was a powder blue Volkswagon diesel with a tan convertible top. On September 13, 2018, on Friday the 13th, a 100 year old oak tree fell across it and it totaled my car. I was heartbroken but I stayed positive. A powder blue Volkswagon diesel with a tan convertible top is an extremely rare car. I decided not to try to buy anything to replace it until we came back from Arizona. We left for Arizona in December.
While in Arizona, I would look at Cargurus every so often. Cargurus is the leading online automotive marketplace. I was always picturing my powder blue bug. In January 2019, the exact same powder blue Volkswagon diesel with a tan convertible top was listed in Arizona, just 3 hours from where we were! We jumped and bought it 2 days later. There was a list of interested parties but it was destined to be mine! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
