VW-Beetles is dedicated to all things Volkswagen Beetle.
Volkswagen’s and in particular ‘Beetles’ have been a huge part of my life for as long as I can remember. My parents have owned several VW Camper Vans down the years.
It all started in the 80’s with the Herbie films for me and from then on in I have collected Beetle memorabilia ever since and have owned two ‘Beetles’ since passing my driving test in 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’ and "Strenght through joy"car, Volkswagen adopted the name 'Beetle' years later due to it's popularity and its offical title is "Volkswagen" or "Type 1". The VW Beetle is a ‘Rear Engine, Rear Wheel Drive’ car, 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.
This website is a hobby for me to show the world my love of the Volswagen Beetle. Please enjoy this website and let me know what can be improved.
