It sounds a bit strange for a popular family car like the Volkswagen Beetle to be outfitted with a roll bar, bucket seats and a racing harness. But the first souped-up VW Bugs hit the roads in Germany as early as 1951.Drive it! got a chance to take a specially-tuned, vintage rallye Beetle out for a spin - and discovered that roll bars, bucket seats and racing seat belts are more than welcome in a Bug that can do 170 km/h.

At its premiere in the New York Waldorf-Astoria in 1955, the BMW 507 was an

vintage! The VW-Porsche 914 | drive it!
The moon landing was no doubt the most pioneering event of 1969. But what
Volkswagen and Porsche came out with that year also looked to many sports
car lovers like something out of this world. The VW-Porsche 914 polarized
people -- and still does today. Some consider the car a rotten compromise,
others a true maverick. Still the numbers speak for themselves -- some
120-thousand 914s were built, making it the first mid-engine car to rack up
six-digit sales figures.
Classics Revealed: The Original Volkswagen Beetle Convertible
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) An Original Volkswagen Beetle Convertible is a
rare car indeed. Well at least rare when it comes to the classic VW Beetle.
While they build over 300,000 of first generation Beetle convertibles, they
built over 21 million of the same basic car but with a hard top. Recently
Volkswagen rolled out the 3rd generation of the iconic Beetle at the LA
Auto Show but at the same time they brought some of the original
convertibles to California. In the exclusive TFLcar video we drive an
original 1979 1500 cc fuel injected model that had only 250 miles on the
clock when we took the wheel. In fact this museum car from Germany is a
time machine straight from the factory floor.

1962 VW Ragtop Beetle Test Drive
Visit http://www.sunsetclassics.com/1962-vw-beetle-ragtop/ to see this
beautifully restored 1962 VW Beetle for sale from Sunset Classics.
The color on this Sunroof Bug is perhaps my favorite color ever offered on
a classic Volkswagen: L380 Turquoise. Amazingly the turquoise on the
interior of the car is original paint! The dash face, the inside of the
doors, and the area above the windshield are in the same beautifully
applied coat of paint sprayed at the factory way back in February of 1962.
The exterior paint is very nice. All of the glass was removed when the
exterior of this bug was painted for a very thorough job. New window
rubber, new door rubber, new fender beading and new turn signal rubber were
all installed during reassembly. This was a thorough restoration and the
end result is the great-looking sunroof Beetle.
Please check out the full description, 2 photo galleries and more video at
the link above, and then give me a call to take her home!
Thanks for watching this VW Beetle test drive in scenic Minneapolis -
please give 'er a thumbs up and subscribe for more great classic car vids.
The Volkswagen Beetle may be the most famous car worldwide and is certainly
a cult classic in a class of its own. This 1956 classic Beetle has to pass
the modern age tracktest - how will it perform?
Hanson Mechanical presents the World War II Off Road Beetle KDF 82E Road Test (Filmed in HD)
Video Production by www.eBrandingGroup.com in Baltimore, MD.
We dragged out the 82E after a long sleep. It was experiencing numerous
issues including a wonky oil pressure sensor, bad gas and a couple other
typical long sleep problems. It resides in Australia now. When you have
vehicles that end up sitting too long between runs it is time to send them
on to new homes. Old vehicles have to be run regularly!!
This was a VERY cold day! Ten Degrees! Try holding a video camera outside
and on top of a jeep at 40 mph to see what its like, it was so fun, we did
not feel the cold as much. This is a world war II, KDF 82E.
