Then & Now: VW #BUG There have been several Retro Re-do's of classics in the auto world, to bring the older favorites back to the current roads with updated power, styling, technology and of course 'safety'. While some of my favorites have been skipped from a new face lift (namely the Jeep Scrambler) * not counting the rumors - others have successfully bridged the gap. A tip of the hat to the Beetle that seemed to have kicked off the trend back in the 90's; and has remained a successful offering from VW.
Even though they have moved the motor to the front of the car, VW styling has kept many of the same lines and curios that made the original 'Bug' so cliche and popular.; while bringing the performance and iconography to today's flavors.
