There are easy ways to narrow the search, for example, a search for the keyword "Schwimmwagen" in the "vintage photos and postcards" gallery results in 315 photos.

https://www.thesamba.com/vw/forum/album_search.php...t_dir=DESC

It's still a long list, but easier than cross referencing 500 pages. It's also not going to show everything posted, especially from outside links, but is a good way to double check. For example, the famous Malmedy crossroads photo was first posted in 2003.

This show was just on local TV, so nothing suggested it had been here already, though it looked like stock photos so I'm not surprised.

But I just I don't have the kind of time to search almost 500 pages just in case! Wink


@KTPhil: But I darkly remember.

Wow, so the "Fascism" episode is even older than I thought! The parallels to today are chilling. The date of the program guide implied summer 2020, but apparently it was at least a year older.

Good find!

very strange, why these early, new looking convertibles when everything else shows cars from 1960? including a crewcab at 1:41

The bear was a symbol of Berlin, so it was appropriate to bring a "live" one to advertise the auto show. Here's a statue of the bear on the Autobahn near Berlin-

and its twin just outside of downtown Munich on one of the original Autobahns, which I've seen many times in person on business trips.
