“When your life feels like you're on a sailboat, with no wind to fill your sails, there are still choices. You can drop anchor and enjoy your surroundings. Start your motor, if you have one. Grab an oar and start paddling, or wait for the wind to fill your sails once again. There are always other choices while crossing the ocean of life…”

Arturo Uslar Pietri
“Yo he visto estos solitarios apretujados en increíbles racimos en los andenes y en los coches del tren subterráneo. Apenas queda espacio para mantenerse en pie dentro del denso rebaño, y sin embargo todos van solos, nadie está acompañado; entre el ruido de las ruedas y los mugidos del motor es raro oír una voz humana, y cuando se oye todos los que la alcanzan se vuelven como recién despertados, llenos de sorpresa y hasta de desazón. Cuando alguien quiere informarse sobre el itinerario se dirige al plano mudo que está en la pared, con el gesto con que el peregrino en el desierto o en el mar mira las estrellas para consultar el rumbo. Tampoco casi nadie mira a otro, y cuando por azar dos miradas se cruzan, instantáneamente se desvían llenas del temeroso presentimiento de haberse asomado al más allá. En los andenes esta masa se forma sin soldaduras ni unidad, y se deshace sin desgarramiento, con la silenciosa mecánica con que las moléculas de los líquidos se yuxtaponen y se separan. Moléculas de soledad.”
Arturo Uslar Pietri, El globo de colores

“Large Squares, 1965 -Last Beetle
The body is much the same as the previous model, aside from increase in window size all round. Door handles and lock mechanisms also changed as well as seat and dashboard designs. Chrome beading became thinner, mounting holes for these also smaller. Chrome was later replaced by black anodizing or plastic to try and modernize the Bug. Tail light clusters changed from the oval shape to the ‘headstone’ and then the ‘elephant’s foot’ jumbo units the bug saw its last days with. In 1965 new larger windows all round. 1966 saw the last 6v bug, and also the first 1300cc motor. Those horrible little air vents behind the rear side windows came out in 1971 that caused lots of rusty bugs. Sloping headlights looked much nicer but went out in 1967.”
