I don’t know what cars have now — probably printed circuits and Artificial Intelligence telling them to “Juice up” when the blinker lights go out, but there was a time — in the days of my 1970 VW bug — when it was necessary to pull a little plastic box out from under the dashboard, take out fuses that had blown and put in fuses that were new.
My work here is done. 🙂

I once had two Beetles just like that one, one light blue and when it gave out I got a yellow one. Great post Martha.
Thank you! I loved that car. 🙂
Me too, after the yellow one I got a white square back! 🙂
I’d get one now if I could find one in great shape and in my $$$ range. Nothing was better in deep snow.
They were great and if they broke down one could fix it with a piece of duct tape, lol!
Yep. I (with the help of a friend) rebuilt the carburetor in mine and tuned it up! Changing the oil was a cinch.
I think they had a lawn mower engine in the back…lol!
Our very first family car was a white beetle. I do not remember light prolems, but they must have existed, because it had every problem possible. We once drove home, a 2 hour journey, without functioning brakes. A master of driving (Mr. Swiss, I did not have the licence to drive/kill then).
I hope you weren’t driving home from the Berner Oberland!!! 🙂
From Montreux, the Bernese Overland would have been nearer.
