The VW Beetle continues to enjoy a loyal following in the US, but the relationship to it has always been different than in Germany. There, it became the icon of the re-emergence of Germany’s post war industrial and economic strength. The cult of early Volkswagens is as strong as ever there, and as this exhibit shows, its manifestations continue to find new venues.
Nice setting, btw; note how the lines on the rear deck mirror those of the Gothic arches of the church. I always thought the front ends of certain ’59 American cars would make a good altar; they just need to be in a baroque church.
