Dan Ouellette

Author Dan Ouellette has been driving a Volkswagen Beetle for more than 25 years. Off road, he is a music critic for Down Beat, and writes about all forms of American culture for Salon, Esquire and his home-town paper The San Francisco Examiner. He confesses that he traded in his orange 1974 Bug -- now up on blocks -- for a new silver Beetle.
