In episode 2 of Project Nazi: Blueprints for Evil (on American Heroes Channel, last night, "Hitler's Highways"), several minutes about KdF Wagens, and a visit with a guy who owns like 6 of these in Germany. The English historian got to drive one of them on the road. I'd say about 4 minutes on VWs.

Yep Cusser; a good episode with some wonderful period footage of the KdF Beetle. The British host was very cautious about driving the KdF; might not have realized how much skill is needed to smoothly drive a fully non-synchro ("crashbox") transmission.

Here's a thread on a recent event held by the KdF collector Dr. Hausmann. The garage in which the collection is housed is the same as in the TV program.

Likely posted before, but in re-run of Charlie's Angels yesterday, the gals rode in an orange Thing while in Hawaii.

I only watch it for the articles....

I thought the hood gap was still sloppy, despite all the work they did to improve it. You can fit a finger between the quarter panel and the hood. Unless he put in an inch-thick foam seal, all that work on a hood tray to keep water out of the frunk was for naught... water will still make its way down the Bermuda Triangles and eventually rot out the heater channels.

Nice showing of imports in early 1960's Calif. L to R, front row:
- Volvo Amazon sedan
- ? (searched for Lancia, Fiat, Peugeot, Simca coupes but no matches)
- Fiat 1100 Sedan with front suicide doors (mid '50's?)
- Renault Dauphine
- Peugeot 403 Sedan (Convertible version was driven by Peter Falk all through the "Columbo" TV series)

From the trailer for the upcoming movie "VICE" about Dick Cheney:

Clearly a Beetle, probably '64 or older. Not enough shown to really pin it down better.

I would have expected the real Cheney would have a hard time fitting into a Bug...

On TV this morning in Los Angeles...

Zuma is a service dog in training that the station is sponsoring and following. Among several photos of Zuma was this one of a holiday-decorated '64 convertible Bug:

Did the '64 vert have the WB crest?
