I was even MORE impressed with the beetle in person when it came in - Definitely bigger than I imagined and well-crafted.

Sorry about the lost auction - Where did you get your goggles? While in New York, we stopped by Fabulous Fanny's, an antique glasses shop that boasts goggles as well... Unfortunately, the goggles selection was a bit disappointing, so I want to look elsewhere... But there's a lot of sites out there where you can find them and I'm just not sure of the quality.

The prices range from $400 - over $1000... The one I bought my boyfriend was $700 (I was fortunate enough that I earned my annual bonus in time for our anniversary).
