Why not settle for this lovely keychain instead from Ebay for $19.95 (with free shipping) and buy yourself a MUCH better convertible. http://www.ebay.com/itm/KEY-CHAIN-VW-THING-VOLKSWAGEN-CONVERTIBLE-TREKKER-YELLOW-PORTE-CLE-TYPE-181-182-/290801965222 This monstrosity will be a moneypit for certain, IF you can even find one.
