I found a 70’s super beetle for sale today in Illinois. It’s cheap by todays standards. Unfortunately due to rainy weather I didn’t grab a picture of it. It was a fixer-upper for $3k. But it did run/drive.

Nowadays some movies are switching to those UTVs and similar models.

I found a late 60’s beetle for sale today in IL. But this one was too far gone for my needs. I feel $3k for a basket case is a bit steep.
It’s amazing how these cars are turning to unobtainium!

Even in Brazil where Beetles are still often daily driven, it's becoming too expensive.

About a hour or two ago I saw a Volkswagen Polo taxi, seemingly with the naturally-aspirated 1.0L engine. And a 5-speed manual transmission. Volkswagen might be losing a few sales in Brazil by no longer offering any model with automatic transmission and naturally-aspirated engine, only turbocharged models come with this option nowadays, but it's lucky enough to still have a considerable amount of buyers with a much conservative taste for cars.
