VW Driving Through Car Wash

Beetle X-ing! There's a giant, cut-in-half VW at a local car wash. It's probably about two times the size of a regular car.

[Ben Perdue, 12/24/2015]

If that's fiberglass, it had better be bigger than a regular car. Part of the appeal of a car cut in half is that it's an actual vehicle.
