PhotoHunt - Low rider

This is one of the Volkswagen beetles that was on display in Frederick as part of the City's First Saturday event. It sits low while parked and makes one wonder how it avoids major damage while in motion. The answer is that underneath is an air ride suspension that raises the car for driving. The chasis below was also on display showing the cylinders that raised the car for driving. Check back August 11 for more images of the VWs in My World Tuesday.

Wow, great photo and explanation! That was my thought when I saw the car-- "Um, HOW do you drive something so low?!" Pretty neat!

Mine is up. I hope you can come visit!
