A cuter car has never been made. The Volkswagen Beetle earned a reputation for being a ‘hippie’ car in the 1960s and 1970s. Groovy folks like this couple adored the Beetle, or Bug, as it was also called, for its affordability, ease of servicing, and drivability. Did you know that the Beetle was originally designed in the 1930s, but with the onset of World War II, it was strictly used as a military vehicle? VW Beetles as civilian cars didn’t really start until the close of the 1940s, but they quickly became popular, especially among the younger generation.
