on saturday, september 24, 1999 i brought home my long-awaited 2000 new beetle, and christened it ‘spacepod’.
spacepod is a silver tdi (turbo diesel) with a sunroof and black cloth interior. i’ve added a chrome luggage rack to the back hatch, and sometimes when on long trips the spacepod sports a silver color-matched perfect fit bra. he also has a spiffy chrome license plate frame which lets everyone know that he’s a turbo diesel (since vw doesn’t see fit to badge the nb).
want to meet me and lots of other new beetle owners? then you need to come to r2k with us next summer!
check out spacepod’s adventures going to the first r2k at all pods go to roswell.
want to know more about the fabulous tdi engine? everyone agrees that fred’s tdi page is the place to do that. and if you’d like to find out how the tdi can help the environment even more, read up on biodiesel.
