The 1969 fully air-conditioned wrought iron Beach Bug.

Original caption: “Los Angeles, California:
The kids test-driving this naturally air-conditioned Volkswagen say it runs fine on the beach, but miniskirts may pose a problem in traffic.
Its entire body is constructed out of white wrought-iron.
The car, built as part of Volkswagen’s exhibit at the international auto show here, is complete with black vinyl upholstery and all running gear.”
