I’ve been asked a number of times why käfer in the name of the blog?
The simple explanation is that “käfer” is German for Beetle. I discovered this while doing research for the restoration of this car. I liked the concept of using the German translation when referring to the vehicle. In addition, there are a number of other sites on the internet that use Beetle or Bug in their title so it was an effort to seperate my site from others. Finally, although my primary heritage is Irish what’s not Irish is all German so I guess it was just a tip of the hat to that part of the family.
