A guy near me was trying in vain to sell his veedub for months with the headline something like "Nice fat girl". I suggested that he use something a little less likely to turn off potential buyers as his tag line. His response was "but that's what they're called!". Yeah, but you're marketing to more than purists, right?

There are more Axis of evil bugs out there tearing up the cones, with plenty of Porsche and Subaru parts. I don't know if this link will work, but here's a pic of another awsome one.
