The Region

Although they were designed in the 1930s and they left the new car market in the United States eight years ago, the funny little hump-backed cars affectionately know as Beetles, Bugs or just plain old VeeDubs still have a loyal following. And many of those loyal followers turned out to pay homage to the “People’s Car,” which is anything but moribund, judging by the crowds that gathered on the expanse of the Irvine Meadows Amphitheatre parking lot. In all, nearly 200 VWs were displayed for judging Sunday at VW Classic ’85, which the promoters hope will become an annual pilgrimage for the faithful.
