Volkswagen Beetle: Portrait of a Legend

This book is not a "how to identify your Beetle" book, nor is it a year-by-year charting of model changes. Rather, through other people's experiences of the car, it allows readers to recall their own fond memories of what it was really like to own a Beetle in its heyday.
- Unique and unusual photographs, many never before seen in a book published in this country, depicting the integration of the Beetle into all facets of life
- Up-to-date information, including coverage of the Concept 1 Beetle, presented in an appealing high-quality, full color, hardcover format
