Girl Surprised With Dream Volkswagen Beetle She Used To Drive Barbie Around In | Happily TV

A teen who dreamed of owning a Volkswagen Beetle since she was a few years old fell to the ground sobbing in shock when her garage door opened and she was surprised with her dream car. Brianna Palmer, 16, from Jonesboro, Arkansas, can trace her love of VW Beetles back to when she had a toy version of the vehicle for her Barbie dolls to drive around in. Every time Brianna would see a Beetle on the road her eyes would light up, her family said – and when she became old enough to drive, she started mentioning one day having a Beetle of her own. Initially, Brianna's parents couldn't afford a new Beetle, and good used ones were hard to find, her mom, Amy Michael, 43, said. But after Brianna had an accident in her first car, she took some time off driving, which gave Amy and her husband, Keith, 52, time to search for a Beetle once more. Having found one online, Amy and Keith secretly drove it to their family home one night while Brianna was staying at her older brother's house. When Brianna returned home, on December 30, she was asked to stand outside her garage door, while Amy and Keith waited inside. As the door rose, Brianna set eyes on her white Beetle, which had a red bow wrapped around it.
