A.H = aldof hitler, but wasn't it Ferdinand Porsche who designed the beetle?, and hitler just commissioning him to do it? i also heard that there where some prototype beetle's made before hitler commissioned him?

I've seen the love bug, Herbie rides again, Herbie goes to monte carlo, & Herbie fully loaded

Just loved the second picture of Bettle, plain amazing. Though I am no classic fan, but would love to see more pics of your car.
