VW i rallyskogen!
På 1970-talet fanns en särskild enhetsklass i rally för VW typ 1. Den
som hade rallylicens kunde få köpa en rallybil från Svenska Volkswagen
till rabatterat pris. Sune Westerlunds VW 1303 S började sitt liv som
VW-cup bil och efter renovering tjänstgör den åter som rallybil.
vw beetle documentary: kleiner wagen grosse liebe (2/7)
I admit: It takes some persistence to stay awake watching all 7 chapters of
this 55 minute 'infomercial', which was shot in Germany in 1949. Even for
the standards of those days the photographic quality is poor. The storyline
is very thin and a bit staged. So it takes a real die-hard beetle lover to
appreciate the film.
The first minutes of the film look like a wartime 'deutsche Wochenschau'.
The powerful bombastic music amplifies that atmosphere.
The film was a collaboration between Esso and the Wolfsburg volkswagen
plant. This was only 4 years after the war. Only few could affort to drive
a car. Amazing is to see the early split window car playing a main role in
the film: Kleiner Wagen, grosse Liebe. The pretty lady in this clip is
Hilde Hildebrand. She was a well known german pre-war actress. She plays
alongside less well known actors like Jakob tiedtke, Beppo Brem appear in
