Volkswagens of all types, like the Beetle and the Thing, as well as the Karmann Ghia and the Camper or the Cabriolet, bring smiles and fond memories to the minds of many people. If you are a VW fan I hope you will enjoy seeing the many vintage VW pictures featured in this section.

Development of the German VW can be traced back to the 1930s'.

Volkswagen added new models over the years. First there was the sedan that became popularly called the Beetle or Bug, then came the sunroof version plus the convertible and the first transporter vans.

Transporters evolved into a whole series of models as time passed the including the Kombi, the Camper and more.

In 1956 the sleek little Karmann Ghia coupe arrived. It was joined in 1958 by a sporty Karmann Ghia convertible. Having been a back seat passenger in an early 60s' K-G coupe many times as a youth I'm ok with saying that calling Karmann Ghia a 2+2 (passengers) car would is being generous. The +2 passengers had to be pretty small people to be comfortable.

In 1966 the familiar Beetle, Bus and Karmann Ghia were joined in the USA by the 1500, a larger car with boxier styling.

The larger Super Beetle came along later. The Super Beetle convertible was the last holdout for the Bug style VWs in the USA being imported until 1979.

The hobby of collecting and restoring vintage Volkswagens is popular with many folks.

Take some time as you cruise through these VW pictures and enjoy the memories or dreams you have of these little cars.

Then consider spending some time browsing through the other antique, classic and special interest collector car pictures here at

Most of these photos were taken at local classic car shows, which is always a great way to spend a day.
