But the stories abound when it happened to be a Volkswagen. And, when it happened to have been a Beetle—a 1967 Beetle…..well, the story just gets bigger right there!
While surfing around the web, I happened upon a video which embodied the best of Worlds—that first car, which, as it happened, turned out to have been a 1967 Ruby Red Beetle.
