Here in the good ol’ U S of A, my vehicle would be considered “foreign”. Well, be that as it may, this American LOVES her “foreign” car.
I first purchased a ’65 foreigner in 1968. It was a blue four-speed VW Bug. Now that, at the time, was “foreign” to me. I didn’t know the first thing about driving that thing. But I took to the hills, literally, and learned real fast about how to use an emergency break when the nose of my stick shift sweety was pointed at a 30 degree angle.
Since then, I’ve owned a ’61 bug, a 70 Karmen Ghia, a 64 VW bus (ahhhhh, memories!) and now, introducing, ta-da, my lastest “foreign’ car – my 2003 VW convertible beetle. Ain’t she sweet? 🙂
And this girl goes nowhere without her trusty sidekick, Minkey the monkey. I’m not sure, but I think he might be foreign, too. He’s got that adorable, exotic, dark, handsome look about him. 😆

Minkey – tall, dark, and handsome. And vintage like the bug (…and I won’t say vintage like us, but yeah).
Vintage! I love it. Sounds more precious 🙂
Where did you pick up sock monkey … or did he pick up you 🙂
Haha! Actually, a gift from my stepdaughter. But I’d pick him up in a New York minute :-).
I love your car and the monkey and that it goes where you go…you are so coll Gemma.
My grandkids just sent me three more mini Minkeys. :-). ROAD TRIP!
Yea !!!!! That is awesome Gemma. Oh and I meant ‘cool’
In all modesty, I knew that. Not cause I am, but cause I figured coll wasn’t a word and I hoped for ‘cool’.
Such a cute post, Gemma. Love your foreign wheels and Mr Minkey. 🙂
I have a convertible bug too. I love it!!! 2006 Aquarius Blue. Absolutely the cutest car on the road!!! 🙂
Without a doubt, L&I 🙂
Love your wheels! 🙂
Thanks. Me too (obviously) 😆

Love your ride… I’ll take a few… 😉
Right? So cute 😀
I love these cars!
I KNEW YOU WOULD! They are the best even though they are not made by Mattel. 😀
Great twist on the challenge, Gemma! Your new sweetie is adorable (I had a black ’68 Ghia – and it was fun to drive!) I like your little companion, too! 😉
Fun drive, indeed. And there are three new mini Minkeys thAt our grandkids sent up from Georgia. The beetle is turning into a mini van 😉
Exciting cars and monkey seems to agree with me too. He looks so relax and just having a fun day. Great post!
Fun post. Love that foreign car :-).
hihihihi, that monkey rocks! 😀 😀 😀
I know. Right? 🙂 🙂 🙂
I hope you and Minkey the Monkey are okay after that witch Sandy paid you a visit!
Thanks, T2T. Me, family and Minkey are fine 🙂
Shore house, not so fine 😦
Will know more when they let us back into Brigantine, NJ
Everything for a reason, right?
I love it! Adorable car (and sidekick). I have always loved Bugs. They are cute and fun, like their drivers. 🙂
You flatter me ;-). YAY! Thanks!
A fun car with some fun riders.
Indeed, the lady bug is a sleek ride plus Minkey, who can top that 🙂
cute cute cute!!
He’d have to be foreign with those big red lips. Pity they’re not made of flesh.
What a hunk, huh? Ooo la la and hubba hubba. 🙂

Cool and awesome. Cars that makes your adrenaline pump up and wants you to embrace freedom and speed up freely.
Now you’re talking, IT! 😆
What a beautyfull car! Congratulation.
I’am from Germany and the car isn’t foreign for me .
But here in Berlin people don’t drive this kind of car, too.
Because all have cars for the daily live.
But I like VW Bugs very much!
Greetings from Berlin, Germany
Susanne, thanks for dropping by. I don’t know why people in Germany don’t drive these cuties. To each his ( or her ) own I guess. I’m just glad she’s mine :-D.
Love Minkey, and your car is quite different from mine, I really don’t need a car without a roof, unfortunately.. 😉
Sometimes you just have to turn the heat on the seats :-D.
great post, great cars, and great monkey!!!!
