My first cars all were used snip or gift "Käfer", as they are called in German and I loved them dearly,
not only because they look so cute, but also because I did not have to care about a thing,
except the optics, if you know what I mean.



The most important thing was the decoration of the chassis, which marked the taking possession of the vehicle.
MINE - UNIQUE - GIRLY



The best, low-cost, cutest and most reliable cars I ever had!

I own an Audi. It's basically the same running gear and motor to the VW though. I preferred the A4 over the Passat. Both good solid reliable cars though. I've owned both VW and Audi, that includes a few classics, like the VW type 2, and a classic 1960's VW beetle. These old VW's are incredibly easy to work on, I've dropped the engine out of a type 2 and replaced the clutch in a matter of a few short hours. It's just 4 engine mount bolts, and 4 gear box bolts, plus your hoses and electrics of course.

Hell I can't even remember how many times I got the VW motors out for total over-hole.
And make sure you got the clutch plate aligned correctly before moving the motor back in place.
And that bastard bolt close to the starter motor....... pain in the ass!

In Oz Port Headland I lived in a VW Camper van for over two years..... (what a great life style that was). :cool:

The VW Volkswagen Beetle Käfer Thread 08 Nov 2015 22:28 #4

Here's one of the early classic type 2's that I've owned. A 1969 Westfalia camper (German import). Fully customised, big bore engine with twin exhaust, rear Safari window, creative engineering westy roof racks (the best in the business) porsche steering wheel, quick shift gear selector, button start, and all sensibly lowered with EMPHI 5 rims. Sadly sold now. The early type 2's are the one's to own, they lost that classic round back shape after 1972.

Those original beetles (the one's with the split back window) are worth a fortune now. Mind you so are the early type 2's. I sold mine for around 10 grand in 2007, they're worth nearly double that now in good nick. :facepalm:

The ultimate VW classic has to be the 1960's split screen Samba bus. That's a creative engineering westy roof rack on the back btw. Don't you just love those front safari windows. :up:

Note the iron cross on the bug, that's what we call the classic VW Beetle over here btw. I've seen a fair few bugs with iron crosses at shows. The owners obviously know the score on the history front.

I'm guessing having such logos on cars is illegal in some parts of Europe, with the red commie goon inquisition laws. right?

Quite interesting to notice the pretty rapid development and design changes within some 5 years.
All mid 1930 to 1940

Typ60 -- 1935

Great little cars. The one I owned was a straight 1600 cc. Those air cooled engines have a unique sound to them when they're cruising along. I've also had a couple of T25's, but the water boxer engine isn't as reliable as the good old air cooled boxer. One of my T 25's was a Vanagon Syncro too, 4 wheel drive version (very rare vehicle), and very similar to the one in the picture below. I have some pictures of it somewhere, so will post them later.





This one has just a little more horse power. :hahano:

Here you go, here's my old VW Vanagon Syncro, looking a little worse for wear. Sold now too. These pictures were taken around 10 years ago. I used it mainly as a towing/camping vehicle for my boating adventures (great on a slipway with them snow tyres fitted!) and great for camping over weekends too. It was the 2.1 injection model. Brilliant vehicle to drive. Note how much higher the Syncro is compared to the standard T 25, also note the American spec lights, The JH stands for Jackson Hole. Originally imported from the U.S.A. I bought it from a guy who was a professional snowboarder in the French Alps.

Hitler stole idea for iconic Volkswagen Beetle from a Jewish engineer, historian claims
www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2086663/Hitler-copied-idea-iconic-Volkswagen-Beetle-Jewish-engineer-historian-claims.html

VW Technical design stealing one balled dead Nazi leader :hmm: :ponda:


strangeside.com/germany-volkswagen-designed-by-jew/

GERMANY – VOLKSWAGEN DESIGNED BY JEW?
With 21.5 million sales since production in Nazi Germany until its layoff in 2003, the Beetle Volkswagen was the longest running and most prolific car in history. For decades, people assumed that the “people’s car” was designed by German engineers. Some even believed that Hitler drew the car’s preliminary sketch. But like much of Nazi history this was likely a swindle. In a recent book, The extraordinary Life of Josef Ganz – The Jewish Engineer Behind Hitler’s Volkwagen, Dutch journalist and engineer Paul Schilperoord forcibly argues that Hitler’s car was stolen from the Jewish car designer Josef Gratz.

Hope you enjoyed your ride in Jooowish technology :larf: :cool2:

1932–1938: People's Car project



Model of Porsche Type 12 (Zündapp), Museum of Industrial Culture, Nuremberg
Volkswagen was originally created in 1936 by the German Labour Front (Deutsche Arbeitsfront).[3]It was originally made by a group of labour. In the early 1930s, the German auto industry was still largely composed of luxury models, and the average German could rarely afford anything more than a motorcycle. As a result, only one German out of 50 owned a car. Seeking a potential new market, some car makers began independent "peoples' car" projects – the Mercedes 170H, Adler AutoBahn, Steyr 55, and Hanomag 1.3L, among others.

Volkswagen New Beetle
The Volkswagen New Beetle is a compact car, introduced by Volkswagen in 1997, drawing heavy inspiration from the exterior design of the original Beetle. Unlike the original Beetle, the New Beetle has its engine in the front, driving the front wheels, with luggage storage in the rear. Many special editions have been released, such as the Malibu Barbie New Beetle.[1] In May 2010, Volkswagen announced that production of the current body of the New Beetle would cease in 2011.[2]
In 2011, a new model replaced the New Beetle, and the New Beetle name was changed back to the original when its successor was introduced, although the two names are often used interchangeably when referring to the New Beetle.

Did Hitler design the VW Beetle?

No, he did not design it. It was designed by Ferdinand Porsche.
_____________________________

Porsche Type 12

It was however commissioned by Hitler. Hitler met with Porsche in 1933 and asked him to develop a cheap good car affordable for everybody, a "Peoples car". Porsche was a natural choice for this, because he in fact already had developed such a car, the Porsche type 12, produced by Zündapp from 1931.
__________________________

Porsche Type 32

In 1932 he the Porsche type 32 was produced, a car quite strikingly similar to the Wolksvagen, including having a 4-cylinder air cooled engine.

Claiming that Hitler designed the Beetle is hence nonsense, as Porsches type 32 has most of the striking design and many of it beetles technical elements in place, well before Hitler and Porsche ever met, and looks more like a Beetle than the alleged sketches by Hitler.
