Not of the small pickup truck manufacturers offer a single cab (just front seats}.


How about a small truck with an 8 foot bed?

And while I certainly would have driven a real Beetle in 1978, I'm too darn old to fool with a 1938 design nowadays. Granted, it was a fantastic 1938 design, but it was a 1938 design.
Technically they took the look from the Type 1, there was no Beetle back then, the Beetle is a 2016-18 car.

Actually, they called it the beetle back then, too, just not officially (well in the UK they did):





The watercooled Golf based New Beetle started it's run in the late '90s:

But Beetles and Bugs were what the VW sedan was nicknamed as far back as the '50s.

I saw one of these just yesterday! I thought the owner had done it! It was nicely painted but I still did a double take and thought "eww, that's uglllly!" BUT if you want a Beetle and a mini truck bed, way to go!

I can't believe someone said Beetles/Bugs didn't come out until a couple of years ago.

Nothing in, nothing out.
