Barranco, Lima, Peru

There are original Beetles everywhere, all of them looking like the ones we grew up with in the 60s. The weather probably helps preserve the old ones, just like in the Bay Area - no salt damage to contend with. I also think VW may have churned out these types for the Latin American market long after they had switched to Super Beetle production for the States. We've yet to see a new generation Beetle among the contemporary cars on the streets.
