I got an email a few weeks back from Alice Mannion’s daughter.  You may remember her from this article.  She wanted to update me on the status of Alice’s Beetle. I’m happy to report that she is still driving it and it’s now at 539, 000+ miles. An amazing achievement for a new generation beetle if you ask me.  Alice’s beetle still has the original engine and transmission. It’s a 2L engine with manual transmission.

Alice now has a place in the Hall of Fame.  Alice, I hope you keep on adding up the miles. Yours is an achievement few can lay claim to. Well done.
