This was listed on Boston craigslist in cars:
1998 VW New Beetle previously owned by first same sex couple to be married in state recognized ceremony. The blue VW figured prominently in news reports as the honeymoon car and was featured in news items the world over. The NY Times, Boston Globe and People Magazine were among the publications that covered the wedding. The write up mentioned them leaving the ceremony in their blue VW Beetle with 'Just Married' sign on back window. This couple also were the lead plaintiffs in the historic case that brought the issue before the Mass. State Supreme Court: Goodridge vs. Dept. of Public Health. The car is in great condition, is a 5 speed manual with only 75k miles and it has been brought up to a high standard of maintenance. No leaks, no check engine lights. Everything works. Well maintained with all receipts. Gray interior is clean and complete. It includes all badges of gay pride that were original including- rainbow sticker, JP sticker (Jamaica Plain), and Jeffrey Sanchez for rep sticker (pro gay right state rep in JP), and the Hawaiian hula dashboard boogle. It is in very good condition beyond a few scratches from an active city life. Should be in a owned by someone that respects it's part in a historic event.
