Great idea. I knew you couldn’t follow the plans. Really an imaginative diversion. You don
t see to many of those old transporters.

My mom told me when she was a kid they would go for a ride and had a game where they got points for the different colored horses they would see.
Well as our child grow up we did it with VW’s.
A VW Bug was called a Beaver = 5 points.
A VW Bus was called a Beaver Cleaver =10 points.
A VW dune buggy or a beatle striped down was a beaver streaker =35 points
A VW karmann ghia =50

Back in the day there were a lot a VW repair shops and you could get in a wreck trying to count the different Bugs while driving so =100 points for a Beaver Factory.

AND if you saw a VW PICKUP TRUCK you pretty well won the game cause you just didn’t see them.

So by building this truck I’ve pretty well won the game from now on. LOL

Sorry crowie but those are’t Beatle Bugs.
I guess they looked to much like a regular car so not interested in counting them.

O! I should also add that calling one to quickly and being wrong would subtract that amount of points, so you want to be quick and it better be right!!! LOL

How can you play the game if your one of the main points to be had.

I would guess you could count Fords or Chevy’s. LOL
