Volkswagen’s and in particular ‘Beetles’ have been a huge part of my life for as long as I can remember.
It all started in the 80’s with the Herbie films and from then on in I have collected Beetle memorabilia ever since and have owned two ‘Beetles’ since March 1999.
The Beetle was designed by Dr Ferdinand Porsche and produced under the orders of Adolf Hitler. The Beetle in Germany was also known as the ‘people’s car’ or ‘KDF-Wagen’. The Beetle is configured as ‘Rear Engine, Rear Wheel Drive’, also known as ‘RR’. Between 1938 and 2003 over 21 million Beetles were produced, making it the most successful single bodied car design to date.
