1976 Volkswagen Beetle

The Volkswagen Beetle  truly an iconic car, and this ’76 model has a quirkier frame than we are used to seeing nowadays. The Beetle holds the record for the first model ever to sell 20 million units and was the most popular Volkswagon until 2002.

Even crazier, this car is the size of a blue whale heart (and possibly the same color)!
