If Hitler got one thing right, it's the comission of the VW Beetle to Dr. Ferdinand Porsche.
This is my favorite car. ( from the oldies)
I dunno what happened to the posts that were here, but what the heck. MuscleCarHeart, you're going in the right direction... sort of. The reason I bring this up is because people associate porsche with germany and germany with naziism. But the fact of the matter is that porsche was very sucessful because we americans loved his cars, as Max Hoffman helped him to realise. In my opinion, porsches are as american as baseball and it's about time that they lost that "nazi-mobile" stigma that I hear of every now and then.
All that being said, I gotta ask...why're you all comparing a car to a man/company?
I have to disagree with thunderbunny (because I can).
All of America (remember, this is an American living in Orange County, California saying this) is made up of a little bit of EVERY country. Remember those V-Dub commercials a few years back and the old talking Beetle commercial they have today? That is them telling everyone that they are 100% German. The Corvette was based off of many sports cars from Italy and Germany because they were the best. The Corvette was a conglomeration of several cars, and that is why it is more American than a car made by one European country, like a hot dog (German Frankfurter + American Culture = Frankfurter Sandwich).
Hitler got everything right! For all the butthurts: have a nice cold beverage of Hitlerdidnothingwrong
