In the past week, I have found myself in the presence of three different VW Bugs that all have one very strange thing in common…
They have eyelashes. Yes, eyelashes.
Before we get too far into this discussion, I should probably mention that I am the owner of a Bug. But let’s get one thing straight: I am not now, nor will I ever be, the proud owner of a Bug that has headlights adorned with eyelashes. Or eyeliner. Or bedazzled anything.
Sure, the Bug is designed for accessorizing. I mean, what other car comes straight from the factory with a flower holder affixed to the steering column? But adding eyelashes…to a car? Really?! Come on people. That is just ridiculous.
Having piqued your interest about this quirky adornment, you might be wondering where one could source such a ludicrous item. As it turns out, there are plenty of websites that cater to this market (aren’t there always?).* And fear not, non-Bug owners! No matter what kind of car you drive, there’s a set of lashes made to your headlight’s specs.
But now that you’re aware of this must-have accessory, why would you be content with just adding boring old eyelashes to your car?
In short, you wouldn’t. So instead of settling for awesome, why not make a major splash with:
- Eyelashes with frosted tips
- Eyelashes with frosted metallic tips
- Chrome eyelashes
- Coloured eyelashes
- Eyelashes attached to eyelids
- Lashes with eyeliner made of crystals (boring old plain eyeliner is also available)
Go on, proud car owner! You deserve a little fun in your life…and a little less cash in your wallet. You only live once, right?
Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to go convince my Bug that it’s pretty just the way it rolled off the assembly line…
* I can’t bring myself to add any links, so you’ll have to search for them yourself
Thanks for stopping by my blog and liking my last post “A Prairie Thing”.
My very first car was a 1972 baby blue VW Beetle, a great car that I miss to this day. But what’s with the VW dressup thing? Why has this car always been the object of so much dressup affection and ‘cuteness’ remarks since it was first brought to North America? It’s like that one kid in your school class who always gets to be on the receiving side of jokes and teases. Go figure.
That’s so true about the Bug! I doubt anyone in their right mind would ever put eyelashes on a Ferrari. And if they would, they shouldn’t own one in the first place!
I loved your “A Prairie Thing” post and it got me thinking about towns in Alberta. Do you think it would be wise to drive up Carstairs before heading to Rocky Lane?! Bringing along a Medicine Hat for the journey might keep away car sickness 🙂
Thanks for the comment and the thought-provoking post!
