The Beetle was honoured on Monday as it took its last drive, by a cavalcade of Volkswagen cars and vans.
For its final drive to the Museum of Transport and Technology, the Beetle was accompanied by 45 other VW vehicles in all shapes and sizes, and wonderful colours.
Many thanks to the Auckland VW Owners Club for creating a fabulous Volkswagen procession and for the photos. To see more photos of the many VW vehicles, click here.
