1970 Volkswagen Beetle
If you're a fan of vintage Japanese cars, be sure to check out Nissan's online heritage site. There are tons of vintage Nissan pics and specs going all the way back to the 1920s. Each featured car or truck has relevant specs and a little "detail" tab that gives some background on that specific car.
The Volkswagen Kombi van reached iconic status, with even a school lunch box fashioned in its image. During those early years, the Volkswagen Microbus morphed into various forms. From a cargo carrier with no windows behind the driver's seat to a windowed passenger van with three rows of seats, the possibilities seemed endless.

HISTORY OF THE VOLKSWAGEN BEETLE
The Beetle, officially known as the Volkswagen Type 1, was originally constructed to be the German transportation for the masses much in the same way that Ford’s Model T was for America in the early 20th century. Designed by Ferdinand Porsche, the “Volks-wagen” or “people’s car” had to meet four requirements laid out by the German Government; it had to be fuel efficient, carry two adults and two children comfortably, be capable of 60mph and feature an air-cooled rear engine. Porsche and his team tried various combinations with the aerodynamic “beetle” shape and ultimately it was the designated Type 38, with split rear windows that became the Type 60 or “KdF-Wagen” (translated as the “strength through joy car”). After World War II, the British-controlled Volkswagen factory was rebuilt and the car slowly entered mass production. The Type 1’s unconventional appeal eventually brought in strong sales figures and resulted in VW producing more Beetle derivatives, such as the Type 2 Microbus, Karmann Ghia, the Thing and the Type 3 platform of air-cooled flat-4 engine vehicles. Eventually the sales trend of the imported Volkswagens caught the eye of American automakers and resulted in the “Big Three” producing their own compact cars. This would do little to change that fact that the American Public was smitten with the “Bug.” Today the Volkswagen Beetle is a cultural icon and examples are still enjoyed by collectors and enthusiasts across the globe.
