I just heard this on the news. The plant in Mexico is no longer going to be making Bugs. They were the last one still making them, in fact the only one since '96. Yes, I know they arn't 4WD but they are used off road more often than alot of 4x4s, so I'd say its relavent. You thought almost 20 years was a good run for the K5, the bug ran for 70!
