As a college teenager in Southern California I bought a 1965 VW Kombi - Bumble Bee yellow, aftermarket exhaust that buzzed like a bee, bed, speakers in back, 8track stereo, 6 volt electrical system - for $425. With my teenage Southern California girlfriend and my shoulder length hair paradise was but a turn of the see-through key. And a push down the driveway as the 6 volt electrical system was weak. One sunny afternoon, driving along Pacific Coast Highway to my job in a restaurant, I was sideswiped by a Rolls Royce convertible. The Rolls kept going. Mustering all the power of the Kombi I caught up with the Rolls at a stoplight. I pushed the window open to yell at the driver of the Rolls. The driver turned and looked up at me. It was comedian Flip Wilson in fishing hat, gold jewelry, cutoff jeans, no shirt, no shoes, left foot up on dashboard by steering wheel. I was sort of stunned, Flip smiled, flashed a peace sign, the light changed and Flip sped away. By the time my Kombi was going 45 mph the Rolls was a mile ahead. Arriving at work I checked my Kombi out. Paint from the Rolls was on my hubcaps, the rest was unscratched. What a car.
