Marvin's first night out.

Marvin in his new home

Check out this camera work! I'm sure someone said "getting there is half the fun!" I followed these 3 NB from MacArthur on 183 to the Diner.

D/FW New Beetle Club

Close-ups...hey someone's humping Marvin - so sad, and only 56 miles old to lose his innocence...


Marvin gets his tags and his personal alien to watch over him.

New Plates...okay I lost the luck-of-the-draw with this plate, so no cracks on the random numbers and letters actually spelling anything!

An alien to watch over Marvin - this will have to do until I can find a Marvin antennaball.

At least it matches.

Work chariot

One of many NB friends we pass on the daily commute, this one's a twin!

What a workhorse - only a week later - and averaging 39.25 MPG!


Clean'd and decal'd

Marvin was clean for one day with his new bra before an overnight rain left him all dirty

Some talk about a demolition party and some decals gone bad has us ready for the dropping of Metro's old facade
