Fire Stripes on Buggy

Thought this VW with the fire stripes was pretty cool. 


Black, white, and red.  


Definitely a standout!


The only thing better is the VW van with the psychedelic hippie colors and fantastical images for hope and love.  😉

Amazing 60’s VW Van

Driving toward Rockville, I saw this incredible 60’s VW van with all the flaming rainbow designs for peace, love, and rock & roll.

It was parked on top of this bright orange and blue garage–not sure how it got up there.

I asked my wife to quickly snap a photo as we went by, and she was successful.

While I wasn’t even born yet, when this van would’ve been all the rage, I can still feel reminiscent for the times–when things seemed so much simpler and in a way, purer.

In my mind, it was a time when people rallied around democracy, freedom, human rights, peace and diversity.

While they didn’t know from personal computers, smartphones, and the Internet, people were full of hopes and dreams–perhaps that what ushered in all the great technology that soon followed.
