When I saw this little Beetle sitting on the peg at Toys R Us, I knew it had to be in my collection. I love Beetles, but they are not the end all vehicle for me. What I love more, are unique vehicles. And to have a Tennessee State Trooper Beetle was too cool to pass up.
On further investigation (who wouldn’t want to know more about this car), the 1:1 version is known as the “Litter Bug.” They take it around to shows and parades and speak out about littering on the highways.
The original car was seized in a drug bust. What a great way to honor this Bug, by giving it a new life in the line of duty. There are other “new” Beetles being used by police forces, but it takes a classic Beetle to be something special.
