Norman. U Bug Me. R69 Bug. Names of some vintage Volkswagen Beetles. The cars are attention getters.

The Bi State VW Club has about one hundred members. They are guys and gals who are buggy about the Beetle. They are a social bunch of VW fans who enjoy cars and camaraderie.

Volkswagen was known as The People's Car. Originally it was made in Germany. The size, shape, wood steering wheel, and rear engine design are some unique characteristics.

Keith Brick owns a Volkswagen Bus. It is a 1966 model, complete with a pop up camper, dining table, and a place to sleep.

Larry Patrick owns a 72 Super Beetle Convertible. It has a coral color and has won several trophies. Larry calls it his baby.

At one time, the VW was the top selling automobile import in the United States. The last original Beetle rolled off the line in Mexico about nine years ago.

Six men started the Bi State VW Club in 1996. It has grown substantially since then. The club has supported several charities through the years, including Camp Courageous of Iowa. That is a year round camp for handicapped children.
