On This Day: Last VW Beetle produced


It was On This Day in 2003 that the last classic VW Beetle rolled off the production line in Mexico. Volkswagen, which is headquartered in Wolfsburg, Germany, built over 21 million since World War II. 

The classic VW Beetle was my mom’s choice of vehicles when I was young.
