In the early 1930s the average German rarely could afford anything more than a motorcycle, and Volkswagen was founded in 1937 by the German Labour Front with some great help from a vegetarian German guy with a square mustache and named Adolph . Although designed in the 1930s, the Beetle was only produced in significant numbers from 1945. Call it Beetle, Kafer, or Coccinelle, over 21 million of the beetle were manufactured. It is one of the world's most influential car of the 20th century. Then came Type2 or bus, camper, van or an other many many names in many markets. It had a sympathetic fallowing since its inception and has become a counterculture symbol. Later the Karmann Ghia was introduced. The car lacked in power and performance, but made it up with elegance and the joy of owning a “sporty look” car while what they really needed was a common one. The friendly VWs have won our smiles and entered the Legend on the tunes of their unique engine sound.
