The Volkswagen Beetle aka “The Peoples Car” was once referred to as one of the top four cars of the century. When Volkswagen launched this new car concept model in 1949, the sales were so low only 2 sold for the entire year. The quirkiness of the “not-so-small” car began to catch on, however, and by the early 1960’s hundreds of thousands were being sold yearly. Additionally, the ad campaign ” not-so-small ” was named the best campaign in the last 100 years in 1999 topping companies such as Marlboro, Coca-Cola, Nike, and McDonald’s.
A fun fact; the Herbie the Love Bug tv series by Disney was a huge hit. An original Herbie actually sold for just over $126,000!
