GIR Erster Beitrag: 31. Juli 2003 Letzter Beitrag: 26. September 2003 Yesterday VW shutdown the (old) Beetle plant in Mexico. I was suprised to hear they were still being produced. Anywayz after 60 years the Beetle is the car with the longest trackrecord. Ordered by Hitler himself and produced in masses. In Hitler's words: "Yeder mensch kriegt ein Volkswagen" translated: "Every person will get a VW". These words kicked off the production in germany. Later on the production was shifted to Mexico because the hand assembly was too expensive. Ironicaly in the 60's and 70's the car was a symbol of love and flowerpower. Strange indeed cause everybody all over the world had one not thinking about the fact that Hitler himself was involved with this car. Ordered by Hitler or not it was a very fine, cheap and strong car.
