VolksWagon VW Beetle 1956

My first car was a 1971 VW Beetle.  I learnt to drive in it, and boy, if you can master a Beetle you can drive just about anything.  Reversing was a really skill, as were hand brake starts up a hill.  We sold it in when our first child was born in 1993 - it was too hard to get into the baby capsule in the back seat, and the heating and cooling were ....interesting.  Cooling involved rolling down the windows, and I swear the exhaust tunnelled back in as the heater.

I still miss it though!

Anyway, I found this ad from 1956, and just had to share.
