Sketched by a Toddler: 1977 Volkswagen Hormiga

I wasn’t the best artist when I was a three year old paste-eater, but I did enjoy scribbling my car designs on the back of restaurant kid’s menus in the artistic medium of crayola and drool. I didn’t know where those drawings ended up, but apparently my Mom must have mailed them to Volkswagen because my truck concept from many decades ago went into production. Now, where are my royalties from the 6200 examples of the EA489 Basistransporter (aka the Hormiga — Ant in Spanish) built from ’76-’79? Find this 1977 Volkswagen Hormiga offered for $19,900 in Tucson, AZ via craigslist.
