Back in the 1980s I had a easter egg bright pink and yellow bug that always drew attention wherever it went

Paint was by Jeff (TurboNOS56VW) and he came up with the perfect color combo and graphics that just "worked"!

In the 80s wild and bright was all the rage!!

Well it was it was copied (badly) and the clone was in VW Trends

It was on the cover of the Car Custom catalog around 1986

And now 30 years later it is now in a video game? YES A VIDEO GAME!
Trying to find out what game it is now.

Shocked to see this this morning on a facebook post

Maybe I need to build a tribute car , I sure would look funny in it today LOL

Is that the same car in both shots?
and two, what time frame did you own / show it?
Top photo is a screen shot of it in the video game

Bottom photo is my actual car at Bug O Rama Sacramento around 1985

I had it roughly 85-88

That is a cool looking car! For whatever reason, I've always liked the over the roof or over the back striping of the 80's era cars.
