This weekend was exciting! I took a 2017 VW Beetle Classic Convertible on a road trip. Where, you might ask? To the mountains of Helen, Georgia. If you are not aware of that, it is the beautiful and scenic home of the Chattahoochee River. Songs have been written about the wonder that this river has to offer. I first went there on my honeymoon. It’s a place where you can still see all of the stars at night.
We drove up through Greenville, SC to get to the Georgia border. I have always loved the climate in this neck of the woods. It is always cooler, and the humidity is rare to be found. The Beetle did magnificent on the highway, getting an average of 35-36 mpg. But, the fun didn’t really begin until we got into the mountains of Georgia. The winding turns were no trouble for the low riding suspension that the Beetle has. With the top down, the mountain air was as fresh as you could possibly ask for on a beautiful Saturday afternoon. And when the night came on and the temperature started to drop, the heated seats kept us warm as we continued to twist and turn through the mountainside with the top down.
That old saying, “it’s the journey and not the destination,” really held true on this adventure. There is something about the drive in a convertible that makes the ride more fun. It’s as close to nature, as you are going to get in a car. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed the way this Beetle performed, and I am sure that you will agree, once you take a test drive in this exciting car. If this short blog inspired you to wonder what life in a convertible is like, then don’t waste any time thinking about it. Come down to Midlands Volkswagen and try a convertible Beetle today. You won’t be disappointed. 🙂
