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.

In July 2007, I received an email from Lew Wood, the actor who appears in
this commercial. He tells:
I am the guy tha D-D-B chose to be the spokesman for that famous "Floating
VW" TV commercial in June , 1972.
My name is Lew Wood, and I was doing commercials and V/O's in NYC when I
was booked for the job. We shot it at a launching ramp in Stamford, CT on
LI Sound. The production crew was Horn-Greiner. Director Norm Greiner.
D-D-B's creative director was Tom Yobaggy. And even Mr. Bernbach was on the
They hired a stuntman to drive the VW into the water. However, Norm Greiner
suddenly woke up to the fact that I had to deliver that last line "Now,
what other car gives you this kind of quality at this kind of price?" from
the car! I said, "Norm, I'm a sailor, I'm at home on the water. I'll drive
I splashed it three times. (We used three identical Beetles, all burnt
orange in color. Splashed two of them alternately, the third never got wet
and was used for "beauty shots." Swimmers went in to tow them back to shore
after each take.
We all thought our commercial would win the "Clio" that year, but the
"Snowplow" commercial took the prize.
However, the residuals were nice!
After many years of searching for a 1972 Super Beetle in burnt orange with
NO RUST, I finally found one a few years ago in Vista, CA, and snapped it
up. I now proudly drive around town frequently and get admiring looks.
Now, you know "the rest of the story!"
Lew Wood died in August 2013, at the age of 84 years.
This commercial has a surprise in it. At the and you can watch a beetle
being driven into the water. Funny is the text in the commercial says:
allthough the beetle does definately float, it will not float indefinately.

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

Hello and welcome to Saabkyle04! YouTube's largest collection of automotive
variety! In today's video, we'll take an up close and personal, in depth
look at the 1973 Volkswagen Super Beetle.
During this presentation, we will take a 1st person look at what the
vehicle is all about beginning with the start up, performance data, fuel
economy, the occasional track data, and build quality. Also, I will teach
you how to use most of the interior and exterior features in a detailed
fashion, that before, you could only get from going to a dealership
yourself! Throughout the video, I will highlight key styling and unique
differences about the vehicle, any available options, and of course it
would not be an enthusiast car video without the good ole engine portion
with rev and Exhaust note with
interior and exterior perspectives. A thorough tour/review of this car
designed to give others a greater overall appreciation of the vehicle.

presented in a more detailed fashion than ever before. Basically, this
gives the viewer the chance to view the most detailed 1st person look you

consistent in the way I present so viewers know what to expect in my
presentations. I treat every vehicle with the same respect whether a 1960
Chevrolet Impala SS or the 2012 Lamborghini Aventador. I film all types of
vehicles from past, present, and future while broadening the knowledge of
the automotive enthusiast. You will see everything from vintage, brand new,
exotic, mainstream, old, etc. I am very proud of this channel and have
built it up from amateur videos years ago to what you see today. I wanted
to share my love for the automotive world with the rest of the world. Be

Seat of YouTube!
