What Little Blue is supposed to look like...

There is a really interesting early 60s bug that parks downtown Sausalito. The guy owns a fastback type 3 as well. The bug's been restored, but with a metallic paint job, which I don't really like. Anyway, I parked next to it a few days back and compared them. You might not be able to tell from the pictures as the differences are subtle. Here's what I see...

1. Obviously, Little Blue's wheels would have been painted the same color as the car, not black.
2. Little Blue is missing the chrome trim on the rear side windows and front windshield.
3. No chrome stone guards or white walls on Little Blue, although I'm not certain Little Blue would have come with those items. Anyone know?

All in all, I think Little Blue looks a little sleeker... The black wheels are really growing on me....

Little Blue is the one in front.

I'm pretty sure those gravel guards were an option, so LB isn't necessarily missing them.
I'm with you on the black wheels, and metallic paint too. LB is the more attractive of this pair.
