Once in my youth I had a chance to trade a sweatshirt (nice HS track team sweatshirt, champion) for a VW rabbit pickup. Alas, I lived in Oakland, the car was in Nevada city and i had no way of getting up there and an unknown mess of things if I got up there. I guess I have a soft spot for these high mpg rattle trap junkbombs since then. There are not too many around anymore, but I spied this one in the UNMLA parking lot, I suspect it was being actively lived in.
Bumper was strapped on, spare strapped to the roof, camper cap, hood strapped on, some sort of bicycle hunting prize strapped to the roof. Biodiesel stickers on the windows. How could it not be good?
Here is a cleaner example of the specie spotted in Oakland last year:
