Driving through New Paltz the other night on my way home I had to do a double take. As I rounded a familiar corner I was suddenly struck with by an object from my past. As I rolled by I craned my neck to get a second look, yes I had just seen a 1967 Volkswagen Bus parked on the side of the road.

It wasn't hard to see that it couldn't have been driven to the spot where it was parked. The tires were flat and the rest of the vehicle was long past being able to pass inspection but somehow it managed to find itself parked in a prime spot for everyone to see it.

1967 Volkswagen Bus Spotted in New Paltz, New York

I have to admit it was really cool to see such a blast from the past sitting out there looking like it needs a home. When I was growing up Volkswagen buses were the car everyone wanted to own. They came with a sense of freedom and wanderlust that muscle cars couldn't match.
