Identifying with a Volkswagen Beetle

Classic Cars

The story of how one particular owner out of countless millions identifies with his classic 1967 Volkswagen Beetle.

It’s kind of hard not to respect the original people's car. Love it or hate it design-wise, next to the Ford Model T and even the original Mini, the Volkswagen Beetle is one of the cars that will forever be enshrined in automotive history. Throughout its 75-year production run, more than 21 million units were built in a host of different countries. But every surviving Beetle has a story to tell, as the owner of this unique 1967 model clearly understands and appreciates wholeheartedly.

He and the car have become, in a true car guy sort of way, kindred spirits. Maybe you just need to have owned one, or any car that has special meaning to you, in order to fully understand.
