When we first caught a glimpse of the new VW Beetle the first thing we thought was, “Man, it’s going to be a lot tougher to know when to punch our older brother in the arm.”  We’ll be honest, the Beetle was never the manliest car in the world.  It wasn’t exactly on the cusp of Mustang & Camaro country but it appears with the 21st Century Beetle Black Turbo Launch Edition, Volkswagen is trying to change things.  With the new looks, a 200-hp turbocharged engine and equipped sport suspension, we are kinda digging this version of the car that used to run on flowers.  You can reserve one now for under $500 if you are so moved by the new look and happen to be a VW fan (of which there are many).  While we aren’t going to sit here and put a manly crown on it just yet (a manly crown by the way is a regular crown with beer can holsters on the sides) we like where VW’s head is at.

 You can’t have a fall evening without a fire. And you can’t have a fire without a Cowboy Cauldron. They’re built from solid plate steel, meaning they’ll last a lifetime or two and they come in four different sizes with elevated basins that can be adjusted to any height. We’re going with The Urbaan Cowboy® because it’s perfect for entertaining at home.  With a 30″ diameter basin, it is more than large enough to have a nice fire, but still small enough to pack into a pickup truck and take it with you.  Can you imagine the envy when we bust this puppy out at a tailgate or the beach? We haven’t seen a more handsome fire. You?  Best of all, Cool Material readers get an exclusive deal.
