More than 300 classic Volkswagen Beetles and vans can be seen on Sunday, 21 May on the Scheveningen boulevard during Air Cooled Scheveningen.
VW fans can enjoy perusing the range of Beetle models ever built during the free vintage car show from 10.00 to 17.00 hrs.
The Volkswagen Beetle, officially called the Volkswagen Type 1, is an economy car produced by the German auto maker Volkswagen from 1938 until 2003. With over 21 million manufactured in an air-cooled, rear-engined, rear-wheel drive configuration, the Beetle is the longest-running and most-manufactured car of a single design platform anywhere in the world.
Aircooled Scheveningen refers to the air-cooled engines of the old-timers. Nearly all the VW Bug types ever built can be seen, such as Baja Bug, California Look, Oval, Cabriolets, Rat Look, Custom Built, Campers and Pick-ups. Unique models, such as a fire engine and an ambulance, can also be seen.
