Maggiolino? Maggiolone?

Maggiolino is the Italian nick-name for a Beetle. When speaking about 1302 and 1303 types, Italians call them Maggiolone. The picture shows an original 1950 Fiat car transporter as used by Autogerma to deliver VW Beetle 50 years ago !

50 anni di Autogerma in Verona (I)

A VW meeting in Italy : "perche no ?"  The national Italian VW distributor known as "Autogerma" celibrated this year his "50 anni di eccellenza" with a top-event, including a VW meeting in Verona.  Some pictures were taken by my best "horse-brother" friend Zorro, who is in Fiat 500's, while he was travelling in Italy, beginning June 2004.

This chart shows the available colours for '71 (US) models 1302. Most colours were also available for the European 1302's.  Our 1302 L left the factory in Kansas Beige (91D), and we decided to change to the more vivid colour Marina Blue (50D).

Berlingo ???

No doubt that some vintage VW cars recently inspired other car manufacturers... The VW Fridolin was in fact a compact delivery van and about 1201 were ordered by Swiss Post.

Deutsche Post

VW Fridolins (type 147) were Westfalia built delivery vans from 1964 untill 1973.  About 6139 Fridolins were produced for the German market and about 85% of them were delivered to Deutsche Post.

Don't try this at home !

Back in the 80ties, some VW fans would category this 1302 as a "Custom look"... Can you imagine yourself driving today such a beetle ?

Oh my God !

Not all Uncle Sam VW fans are into Cal Look, Old School, ... This is, correction, was a 1302...

1302 Limo

Of course, a 1302 limousine exists somewhere over the ocean. To be honest, I prefer the 4 doors Rometsch "stretched" taxi.

Kerry or Bush ???

Volkswagen ads are all-time actual : "Which man would you vote for?" is the slogan.  The ad explains the pictures as follows : "Consider the man in the top picture : he promises to spend your tax dollars wisely...but see how he spends his campaign dollars..on a very fancy convertible, with geniune leather seats and a big 425 HP engine..." Now consider his opponent : he promises to spend your tax dollars wisely..but see how he spends his campaign dollars..on a VW 1302 Convertible...with a hand-fitted top, a warranty... and a price tag that makes it one of the least expensive you can buy.. So maybe this year you'll find a politician who'll do what few politicians ever do : keep his promises before he's elected !!!"
So vote VW ! Your best choice ever !
