There's a black & white one done up to look like a killer whale with a big dorsal fin and a huge tail in Anchorage, Alaska.

Amazing photos, and note the one from 1945 with the Nazi banners and everyone giving the Hitler salute. Yup, the VW came right out of Nazi Germany and onto our roads. Few Americans bought them in the 1940's, but by the time I came of age in the 1960's, everyone had one and they were a blast to drive. Ironic that the preferred mode of transportation for the peace and love generation came from wartime Germany, but our response to this conundrum was to turn the AM radio up louder and light up another joint. Peace, brother.

I really love the 20's/30's design Beetles in the pics.
The Beetle was my first car and I have to say there is no car quite like it. It took me over a year to discover that those strange 'handles' next to my hand-break were actually vents that opened at the back to allow warm air from the engine to come in. No wonder I used to freeze so badly in Winter! You can imagine how upset I was when I discovered that there was actually a solution to the problem of freezing (and I didn't need the blanket...)
