In Ethiopia, VW Beetles undergoing an extensive restoration for hip youth

Volkswagen of America said Thursday it is ending output of the Beetle in , closing another chapter for one of the auto industry’s most storied nameplates.

Garner Enterprises in Twin Falls. The last Volkswagen Beetle, in its third-generation design, rolled off the assembly line in Mexico on July 9. Kilbury recalled how VW stopped producing the Beetle in the late s, then introduced the third-generation design in My memories of the Beetle date back to childhood. We lived on a cul-de-sac of seven houses, and two other families owned Beetles too.
In the evenings, when fire engines could be heard on their way to the nearby airport, all three families would jump in their Beetles and following the crews to watch them extinguish the blaze. Years later, I learned to use a clutch in the same car. When my third son graduated from high school, I bought him a white Beetle from the St. Vincent de Paul in South Bend, Indiana. While I never liked the new design from the s, every time I see a vintage Beetle, I remember those days of my youth.

This is a very personal story that involves a Volkswagen beetle addiction dating back further than I generally care to remember or am even capable of remembering. It started when I was just 18, walking out of the local police station clutching a newly acquired driver’s licence and eager to get into my first car. I already knew what I would really like, but figured it was a bit out of my reach. In those days, the VW beetle was — believe it or not — a highly desirable car for young drivers but was not the cheapest in its category — new or used.
Yep, everybody also knew about the rear-engined, swing-axled car’s tendency to trip and roll more readily than most of its front-engined, leaf-spring, live-axle rear suspension competition, but those with some driving skills could usually get around all this and post quick point-to-point times. Wet roads needed to be treated with extra respect though. The reason they were branded thus came much later in life when VW beetles were still running while most of the British competition had been consigned to the junkyard.
Beetles were built to last and when new, were no noisier than, say, their Morris Minor contemporaries. Surprisingly, my first car well, not actually, because for a brief time I owned a massive, thirsty and awfully unwieldy Pontiac was actually a Morris Minor. It was acquired because these Alex Issigonis-designed British VW equivalents were generally more affordable than a similar-age beetle — and it wasn’t even a Minor , just a series two model with the little, pathetically slow and injury-prone cc engine.
It was at best a fraught experience. In fact I went through a long-standing love-hate relationship with Morris for many years, during which I owned a couple of series two Minors, as well as a great two-door and a disappointing Mini Cooper before finally buying my first beetle in the mid s. By this time I was a family man and the beetle was trustworthy, comfortable and enjoyable to drive, if a little challenged in terms of practicality.
