Dinosaur Volkswagens.

Dinosaur, Colorado, is nowhere near as awesome as it sounds: there are no dinosaurs, although the streets are named after various types of dinosaur such as Plateosaurus. Its only redeeming aspects are two Volkswagen Type 1s in a field near the city limit:

And this well-preserved Type 1 has been off the road since 2004 and is watching pickup trucks go by a few hundred miles west of Dinosaur. The story from the owner is that "it's not for sale BUT if you call me in a few months, who knows, we might make a deal!" - I sure hope so.
