Volkswagen entered the American marketplace in 1949 and was originally sold as a “Victory Wagon” (the name actually means People’s Car).    In 1955, a total of one million VW Bugs (Or Beetles) were sold in total.  The early advertising went from showing off how the car floats because it has a sealed steel bottom to Zsa Zsa Gabor loving the luxury of her limited edition Le Grande Bug.
