Overview

The Volkswagen was introduced to America in 1949, at that time, the simply designed, easy-to-operate cars were the antithesis of the flashy, chrome-covered popular American models. Yet, the Volkswagen persevered, and since that time has grown to become a symbol of practicality and versatility in the U.S. Volkswagen enthusiasts will love this historical exploration of the reliable cars, covering all models imported to the U.S. from the first arrivals in 1949 to today's latest innovations. Over 180 listings provide complete coverage of each model with full-color photos, as well as a look at some of the ads Volkswagen created, many of which toyed with their "anti-car" notoriety. Readers will find coverage of every model Volkswagen the country has seen, from the very popular Beetle to some of the most recent releases like the Touareg and Phaeton.
