Echo Park mattress art is L.A.’s street art

Hard to resist these VW, Beetle-sexuals tearing it up on a discarded mattress.

Revealed: Super Beetle Owner Holds Car Together

Yes, that ’71 Super Beetle front license plate bracket can be a difficult part to find. And mount.  And then, who wants to spend the money? Yet, this Super Beetle must live! It must not go to the Beetle graveyard. (Even though this particular Bug barely stutters to stay alive on the road.)

It probably should bolt right on the front of the bumper in the center where you see the two holes. 

But the owner takes extreme lengths to keep it roadworthy. He rigged up a license plate holder, a funny little MacGyver-like, homemade bracket.
