VW Kombi Retrospective – Film Friday


Last September marked the end of the 56 year production run of the Volkswagen Kombi (more commonly known as the Bus in the U.S.).  Hit the jump for a great video tribute to the VW Kombi, created by Volkswagen of Brasil.

The VW Kombi is one of only a handful of culturally significant vehicles that is instantly recognizable around the world.  After 56 years of continuous production it is no surprise that the VW Kombi or Microbus has garnered more than it’s fair share of fans and followers.

This four minute video  from Volkswagen of Brasil captures some of them and does a great job of capturing the spirit and emotion surrounding one of the most beloved and recognizable cars of the 20th century.
