Volkswagen Beetle: Old v New Comparison | CarAdvice
Let’s be honest, cars of the 1940s and 1950s were big and full of bling. They were the size of tanks that looked like airplanes and cost a small fortune to run. Enter the Volkswagen Beetle.

It went on to sell nearly 22-million units. ------------------------------------------------------------- CarAdvice.com is where Australians turn to for the most comprehensive independent reviews of new cars.
