From Kdf to VW and finally it became a Beatle. It was a real Beatle epedemic. Everywere around ur head they were roaring. Even in the States. Finally they disappeared in Mexico. But still you can buy new ones. Expensiver but timeless. Car for ur whole entire life. But car programms like top gear mostly mention it without refering to the lastest dictator of Germany.

incredible beetle crash commercial!
This spectacular footage can hardly be considered a commercial. It is more
a vw documentary telling us how much punishment a beetle can take.
These days it's just unbearable to see a priceless split window beetle
being tested in this way!

high quality digitally remastered old vw commercials? The DVD really brings

VW Käfer nach 8 Jahren Stand gestartet
Wagen stand 8 Jahre an einer Stelle und wurde von dort in den Hof gezogen.
Besitzer hat ihn immer gedreht, jedoch nie gestartet.
Gab einige kleine Probleme mit dem Benzinschlauch und der Zündung, aber er
läuft ganz ok.
PS: Ja es fehlt ein Zylinder, da ist die Kerze wohl nass geworden.
Wagen wurde jetzt in eine Garage gestellt und bald wieder Fit gemacht!
vw beetle documentary: the shape of quality (3/3)
This australian vw beetle documentary is called: the shape of quality. This
documentary focusses on the technical issues of beetle production in
Australia in de early '60s.
That makes the documentary less interesting for the general public, butr
even more for insiders: people who are 'into the beetle'.
For instance: it strikes me to see that during beetle production the window
rubbers are put into place manually with a hammer, with the risk of
damaging the fresh painted body. Also the use of a thread to push the
rubber in place from the inside of the car is easy to see.
The film was directed by Fred Schepisi.
