The lovable, human-like Volkswagen beetle had a mind of its own and appeared in many television and film spin-offs from the 1960’s to the early 2000’s.

Even though the show was savagely tore down by the critics, my mother the car was one of the first talking cars to visit our homes back in the 60’s. The “car-protagonist” was an older motor that was possessed by the soul of the dead mother of Jerry Van Dyke. The car in true mother and son fashion argued with her son throughout the show’s short run.

The vehicle was quite exotic looking, even from a classical car point of view. It had a white and carnation red body and was created from parts of Ford model T, Hudson, Chevrolet and a Maxwell.
