    The VW Bus went into production 52 years ago today. The VW bus was one of the strangest vehicles to hit the road at that time. With its strange aerodynamic shape the VW bus was definitely eye-catching, but it wasn’t until the hippie conter-culture movement of the 60′s that the VW bus soared in popularity. Now VW buses are seen as an icon of the hippie movement because hippies definitely prefered VW buses. This is most likely because you could fit about 15 of your dirty hippie friends in the back of a VW bus to drive across the country, take tons of drugs, and roll around in the mud while some bands played nearby. Do you realize how many filthy hippie orgies happened in the back of a VW bus? Nonetheless, we salute the VW bus and its colorful history with this gallery of 25 awesome VW buses:

      The VW bus is very much alive and well here in Brazil. Perhaps they were still being made here much later than elsewhere? Or perhaps there is a thriving industry here re-manufacturing them. Whatever the reason, you can see all models of them every day. From the early ones with the air-cooled “boxer” engines, to the later one with the water-cooled 4-cylinder models.

      On a recent trip from João Pessoa to Recife, I saw more VW buses than any other make and model of vehicle.
