Historic VW Beetle

A tree grows through the bumper of a 46-year-old Volkswagen Beetle on Nov. 6 in Otto Weymann's garden in Fuldatal, Germany. The Beetle was supposedly the first car to cross the German border after the Berlin Wall fell. Weymann says he bought the car exactly 20 years ago from two East Germans who had just passed the nearby border between East and West Germany and needed money. Weymann parked the VW in his garden and planted trees in front of and behind the car.
