A VW rally was organized to celebrate 70 years of marvelous mechanical genius by the German Automaker.
This day was organized by the VW Club of Pakistan (VWCOP), who arranged the event at a private farm house outside of Islamabad named 'Las Colinas'.
We saw a gathering of over 25 vehicles, mostly Classic Beetles.

-20 Below Cold Start and Rally '73 Super Beetle
We start the beetle and try to take it rallying on the Ice Roads just
outside Anchorage. Unfortunately we run into an oil leak (from the extreme
cold temps -20f) and oil begins spewing from the front crank seal and
sabotages our plans to take it across the lake to the track plowed on the
ice. As an added bonus, it gets crashed into a snowbank at the end.
Resistência dos carros Volkswagen (stress test)
A VW usa a palavra resistência, confiança, durabilidade a todo instante.
E não é a toa. Veja como os carros são testados na fábrica e em campos
de provas, antes de chegar até o consumidor final.
Espero que gostem da edição. Até o próximo vídeo!

In July 2007, I received an email from Lew Wood, the actor who appears in
this commercial. He tells:
I am the guy tha D-D-B chose to be the spokesman for that famous "Floating
VW" TV commercial in June , 1972.
My name is Lew Wood, and I was doing commercials and V/O's in NYC when I
was booked for the job. We shot it at a launching ramp in Stamford, CT on
LI Sound. The production crew was Horn-Greiner. Director Norm Greiner.
D-D-B's creative director was Tom Yobaggy. And even Mr. Bernbach was on the
They hired a stuntman to drive the VW into the water. However, Norm Greiner
suddenly woke up to the fact that I had to deliver that last line "Now,
what other car gives you this kind of quality at this kind of price?" from
the car! I said, "Norm, I'm a sailor, I'm at home on the water. I'll drive
I splashed it three times. (We used three identical Beetles, all burnt
orange in color. Splashed two of them alternately, the third never got wet
and was used for "beauty shots." Swimmers went in to tow them back to shore
after each take.
We all thought our commercial would win the "Clio" that year, but the
"Snowplow" commercial took the prize.
However, the residuals were nice!
After many years of searching for a 1972 Super Beetle in burnt orange with
NO RUST, I finally found one a few years ago in Vista, CA, and snapped it
up. I now proudly drive around town frequently and get admiring looks.
Now, you know "the rest of the story!"
Lew Wood died in August 2013, at the age of 84 years.
This commercial has a surprise in it. At the and you can watch a beetle
being driven into the water. Funny is the text in the commercial says:
allthough the beetle does definately float, it will not float indefinately.
