Volkswagen Beetle (Type 1) '67

Here is my lastest car. The classic Volkswagen Beetle, officialy called Type 1, or informally in some places around the world the VW Bug.

This car received a lot of modifcations and improvements along the years, I have built the 1967 model.

[Introduction by wikipedia]

This is an economy car produced by the German auto maker Volkswagen (VW) from 1938 until 2003. The need for this kind of car, and its functional objectives, were formulated by German government, wishing for a cheap, simple car to be mass-produced for the new road network of his country.
