History of Volkswagen Beetle Classic
Thanks! Share it with your friends!
Volume is way too low
Way way back, talking like the 1970s, I remember being in college where I took a class on "The History of Warfare," oddly enough for Berkeley taught by a uniformed Army Colonel. To make the class interesting he told our small class (about 8 students, not a popular class at Berkeley) that the VW Bug was Hitler's idea, he wanted a car for the masses. They named it Volkswagen which translated to "People's Car."
Although we believed the Colonel, we broke his balls by saying "yeah right, the Bug was Hitler's car." Next class he played a video clip of Hitler in a parade. He was standing in the back seat area of a convertible Bug. When I told people the origin of the Bug, that it was Hitler's idea, no one believed me.
A great car. And it wasn't designed by Hitler,it was commissioned by him. Motorhead,you're nuts!
Designed by an evil evil nazi leader.Besides these cars were the worst junk. Germany lost ww2 and got back at us by selling this garbage to us even today. We have a big shop and avoid vw today…plastic water pump fails…bizarre software issues even factory cannot fix …Audi even worse.
Thanks. Nice piece.
Reminds me of when Discovery channel was actually interesting!
The translation from this video is Dutch 😀
