On Hvar island, Croatia [1978], photos by Jadran Lazic

Jodie on vacation on Hvar Island, Croatia. Hvar is a group of islands in the Adriatic Sea. The sun shines all the time there. The khaki army look suits her well, she's a naughty girl. She seems to be pride of her skin tanned to light brown. Jodie has just finished filming Moi, Fleur Bleue with Synde Rome in Paris. She did a great wholehearted performance and was dressed like a precocious student girl. She is on vacation in Yougoslavia to be free from a tight schedule.

 "And then I met Jodie Foster, between us has developed a crush, but nothing more than that. Jodie was then very young." [from 24ur.com]

Hey, how are you everybody? [1976]

"Hey, how are you everybody? I'm Jodie Foster. Let me introduce you to my home. It's located in California. It has a nice atmosphere and sunny rooms. My mother made it Meditterranean style, with colored bricks and snow white walls. If you come near my home, please come here. Until then, I might see you at the movies "The Little Girl Who Lives Down The Lane" or "Freaky Friday". Both of them are so good."

Jodie Foster in France, July 14th 1977

"Jodie Foster appears for the first time in a French movie. What she was most looking forward to, why she came here, was the Day of The French Revolution, July 14th. That day she visited various holiday events. The day ended with a dance party at Christian Dior's house in the Paris suburbs. Jodie Foster who is 14 years old introduced an assistant producer as her partner [sic], and tasted the atmosphere of the adult world a little bit." [translated from Japanese]

Jodie's first automobile

"As soon as Jodie turned sixteen and was old enough to drive, Mom bought her a black 1978 Volkswagen convertible with an all-black interior and top. It was the greatest present she had ever gotten. Jodie has never been a material girl; great wealth, which she started to accumulate at a very early age, didn't excite her or change her lifestyle. The Volkswagen was the exception"
[Buddy Foster]

Summary:     1585cc/48hp 4 cylinder with a 4-speed. Previously owned by academy award winner Jodie Foster. Professionally maintained with documentation.

Details:     Jodie Foster's 1979 Volkswagen Bug convertible in mint condition. This car was made the last year these models were produced in Germany. Driven by Ms. Foster in her early 20's the car has been carefully garaged and maintained since its active use. The car has its original engine and the odometer reads just under 50,000 miles. Ms Foster has signed the glove compartment as well as a recent photograph of herself with the car which still bears its Yale license-plate frames.

"My time off is regeneration time, and I'm entirely selfish," Foster says. "Somebody calls and says come out and have lunch, and I say no, because between 12:30 and 2:30, I eat in my car. That's my thing- I EAT IN MY CAR." Jodie's Set offscreen is something she describes as a reverse fantasy. She doesn't like to think she's rich or different. She drove the same beat-up Volkswagen for years, rented a so-so apartment, though she bought her mother a lovely home.
