Exploding Volkswagen

This was quite a sight to see in a museum! (That's me in the green shirt) I found it at the Museum of Contemporary Art - MOCA - in Los Angeles. I think its somewhere around a 1972 Super Beetle, but I'm not positive. I remember there was a lot of bondo work on the body, but it still looked amazing to see the interlocking complexity of a simple machine like a VW. My sister took the shot, my mom is on the edge.

My mom's cousin owns a VW parts shop, I will have to see if he has e-mail and send him this picture. He'd love it!

I have a few other pictures (without people and different angles) if you want them. I own a 1967 and I'm currently trying to restore it. Seeing all of the parts like this really opened my eyes to the intricacy of the machine. It was so cool!
