VOLKSWAGEN MOON HUBCAP

by | 2018 | The Lills, VW Bus

We can’t imagine too many people appreciating an old hubcap as a gift, but we were blown away when new friends surprised us with one! We were told that moon hubcaps were the inspiration for baby moon hubcaps, which people used for their hot-rods and roadsters back in the day. It was supposedly only until around the late sixties, when the flatter versions (like we have on our VW bus, Moksha) appeared. It is not every day you will come across a moon. They are a thing from the past and are considered treasure to many Volkswagen lovers.

This beauty was found by a sweet couple we met in Colorado. Craig and Karen happened by the moon hubcap at a thrift store and thought of us. They handed us a piece of VW gold and we couldn’t be more grateful. They said they could picture it on our bus and just maybe, we’ll come across three more!

Despite the influx of mass-produced, cheap and disposable goods, it’s great to know there are still Volkswagen moon hubcaps floating around out there. It’s also heartwarming to see that there are still strong couples, spreading love and showing the world that good relationships and friendships are possible. Those two lovebirds inspired us so much and gave us so much support regarding our life path. We’ll always think of them when admiring their gift to us.
