    known as the 'Super Beetle'.  And you are correct, the changes made to produce them were catastrophic to the beetle brand.
    They were never the same.  Not really a beetle.

      After 1970 they made the regular Beetle and the Super Beetle.

      The Super Beetle had a curved windshield, an independent front suspension and a few other modifications.

      Mine was the regular Beetle. The only thing that distinguished it from a 1960s Beetle were the larger tail lights and the govt. mandated bumpers. Otherwise it was mechanically identical.

      If the pilot's good, see, I mean if he's reeeally sharp, he can barrel that baby in so low... oh you oughta see it sometime. It's a sight. A big plane like a '52... varrrooom! Its jet exhaust... frying chickens in the barnyard!
