The Volkswagen BEETLE is going the way of the covered wagon. VW announced earlier this week that they will stop production of the Beetle with the last of them rolling off the assembly line in Mexico tomorrow! At it’s height of popularity in the 1960s there were over 500,000 of them on the streets in America. Adolph Hitler helped design the VW Beetle which was introduced in 1938. They had some interesting advertising slogans over the years, most notably, “IT’S UGLY BUT IT WILL GET YOU THERE,” and “LIVE BELOW YOUR MEANS!” I never owned one…did you?
Some good news from VW though is that in 2022 they are bringing back the classic VW BUS and it’s going to be ELECTRIC! Can’t wait to see what they are like!
