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.

Oval Window Beetles - BugsVille Large Collection and Barn Finds
BugsVille was a place of wonder and was by far the largest collection of
Oval Window Bugs most have seen in one place. The place was nick named
Bugsville because there were so many VW's, and in one photo I took I
counted 22, most of which were Oval Windows. It was located in
Southwestern Ontario Canada just outside Tillsonburg before the car
crushers came in and squashed them all. This is just such a waste of
history to have them rust away then ultimately be destroyed. If anyone has
any more photos or stories about this place let me know as I would love to
see and hear about it! These photos are at least 12 years old now and I
thought it was time to put them in a video.
60 Jahre VW - Käfer Teil 1/2
Wirtschaftswunderzeit in Deutschland! Der Krieg liegt zehn Jahre zurück
und der größte Traum der Deutschen ist ein eigenes Automobil. Zwar gab es
schon eine große Auswahl, doch ein Auto fuhr allen davon: der VW Käfer.
Er war robust, bot viel Platz, verfügte über eine solide Technik, hatte
ein pfiffiges Design und war außerordentlich zuverlässig. Damit war er
ein Auto für Jedermann, egal ob arm oder reich. Mitte der 50er Jahre war
jedes vierte Auto auf deutschen Straßen ein Käfer. Auch im Ausland
feierte VW mit ihm große Erfolge. Grund genug, um die Geschichte des
Käfers einmal Revue passieren zu lassen.
1966 VW Beetle - Body Removal - One Person - Remove Body Chassis Bug - (2x Speed)
FOR SALE (July 2, 2013): SOLD
Here's a short video showing the removal of my VW Beetle body from it's
chassis. This is the first time I've attempted this solo. In the past,
I've done it with the help of friends with each of us on a corner of the
car. All things considered, it went pretty well. =) Hopefully someone
will learn from my mistakes. The sawhorses are very similar to the ones
you'll see in the BugMe videos.

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.
