Car Stuff: The Getaway

I spotted this in early August, outside Staples in the Fresh Pond Shopping Center:
There are very few Volkswagen Beetles still around here, at least compared to places like Santa Cruz or Eugene, Oregon, and surely even fewer of the existing cars are convertibles. This one appears to be from the mid-to-late 1970s, based on the bumpers and the orange turn signal sections at the top of the tail lights. That would make it a Super Beetle (and according to Wikipedia, the single tailpipe identifies it as a fuel-injected model, which means it can't be any older than a 1975).

This car was already driving away as we pulled into a parking space, and I was very lucky to get a decent shot of it.
