“My Electric 60’s Hippie VW”

Rene Penia (not pictured) drives his VW Beetle 1995, locally called “Vocho”, through the streets of Monterrey April 22, 2015. The car was painted by a local artist to be part of an exhibition on the 1960s at the National History Museum in Monterrey where it was on display for five years. Pena bought the car for 25.000 Mexican Pesos (some USD 2,000 at that time) in 2013 during an auction and he then converted the car into an electrical vehicle. (Photo by Daniel Becerril/Reuters)
