Beetle still puts a big smile on my face. 🙂
Interesting Fact: The Beetle will float: The Beetle may have been inexpensive, but it was never cheap. Gaps were tight and doors sealed well. Additionally, it was a unibody car with a very flat floor with few openings. All of this meant that the car would actually float for at least several minutes after hitting the water before turning into a small U-boat.

I got good memories of this car. Mine was a Super Beetle semi automatic, no cluthch with an extended dashboard of 5 or 6 inches with 2 monster rear tires with air compressor. A beauty.
I am glad that my photo can bring you back some good memories. You had yourself a sweet ride. I wish I could have seen it, I always appreciate good cars. Thank you for stopping by and enjoying my work. 🙂
Aah, I loved my first Beetle!
I am glad that my photo can bring you back in time to your first Beetle. Thank you for stopping by and enjoying my work. 🙂
The truly electrifying car!
Thank you very much. 🙂
Very nice shot with a great background of the ole’ Beetle. These “Jack Hammers” as we used to call them back in the 60’s, were one of the popular cars. They got the “Jack Jammer” name from the sound of the rear air-cooled engine. Since the engine was air-cooled, it had a habit of over-heating on some car’s. The Beetle has under-gone some serious changes since then. Also, know as a “Flower Car” from the “Hippies” in the 60’s. Today, you can get them in a bright yellow color with a Flower on the Dashboard. They are just too small for me.
Thank you very much for enjoying my work and sharing this amazing info with me. I never knew that they use to be called “Jack Hammers” that is really cool. 🙂
Your very welcome, Sir. The Beetle or Jack Hammer for us was a different car. We used to laugh at it because of the sound it made back in the 60’s. That’s about all I know about the car. Since then it has a engine now that is water-cooled and not so much trouble as back then.
