In the traditional Monopoly rulebook, the Free Parking space is a place to hang out for a turn where nothing happens. But to make the game last longer, people played by their own rules. A favorite alternative rule is to have all fines and fees due the bank be diverted to a pot in the center of the board and a player landing directly on the Free Parking space gets the pot.
In the 1950s and 1960s, a stylish little car with an air-cooled, rear-mounted engine and a turtle back, bug-eyed profile came to America and broke all our common rules of car design. Referred to as a Beetle by The New York Times, the name caught on and its simple design and uncomplicated engine system mainstreamed its popularity among the American public. It inspired a writer and mechanic to self-publish the definitive guide for Volkswagen owners featuring hand drawn illustration and lettering in easy and fun-to-read language for novice and veteran mechanics alike. Even today, the vintage Volkswagen Beetle remains a cultural icon with an enduring legacy.
