I, like many people of my generation, owned a Volkswagen Beetle. It took me through my entire college career as a Ragin Cajun, and there are still days that I miss my little Bug. Now we have a hot new design for the 2012 version, so......you never know what you'll see me in at the beach in the future..reliving my college days with the top down on my Volkswagen Beetle!

Volkswagen is whipping the covers off the 2012 Beetle this week, with simultaneous presentations at the New York and Shanghai auto shows and an invite-only event near VW headquarters in Berlin.
