VolksWagen, sometimes shortformed into VW, Volks/VolksW or VWagen is a type of car from Germany, started somewhere in the 1930's or so. It's believed that the idea of VW was thought up by Hitler, then when a Nazi heard, he liked the idea and started it.
Volkswagen translates into "People Car" or "The People Car" in German.

Sadly, lots of people don't buy VW because Hitler possibly thought up the idea or they just plain out don't like Germans.

But, that's kinda stupid. German engineering is really good, and it lasts and long time (Hence you see lots of old VW around)

The most known VW models are:
"Bob just bought a Volkswagen beetle"
"Volkswagen is German"
"Jane hates Volkswagen. She doesn't know a thing about good cars, though."

One of the best car companies of all time. Starting with the Beetle, they continually fired out proven winners with the Scirocco, Vanagon, Karman Ghia and later with the Golf/GTI and Jetta. Time and time again, they've continued to find success with both younger and older generations, instilling a sense of family and comradrie in the drivers, similar to that found in Jeep owners. Most Volkswagen owners who take their cars seriously gain valuable insight into the world of German engineering, tweaking the lines of their cars to both increase their overall performance and retain an impressive and distinct style at the same time.
I just picked up an R32... and blew the unpainted body kit off of a 1991 Civic that attempted to race me.

The act of spending all or most of one's weekly/bi-weekly/monthly/anuall income on an automobile who continues to draw your love and compassion. Volkswagen owners are usually unaware of the amount of compensation given. They will always deny any shortcomings regarding their car.
So, my volkswagen is in the shop again. ~sigh~ I do love that car.

A car company that proves that you can overcome anything. Volkswagen succeeded and became one of the biggest car manufacurers in the world despite the fact that it was used as propaganda by Hitler to help take over the world
