- This post introduces a new art page category – VW ‘Kombi’ Art.
I base this on my love of the Kombi/Combi VW van. In fact we are a family of devotees of the Kombi and many friends and family members seek out gifts, cards and other paraphernalia related to the Kombi, for us.
VW Kombi/Combi memorabilia focuses on the German Volkswagen Type 2, Kombi, which was introduced in 1950 as its second car model – after Type 1 (The Beetle).
- The first generation of the ‘Kombi‘ Type 2 with the split windshield was produced from 8 March 1950 through to the end of the 1967 model year.
- It was informally called the Splitscreen, or Splittie.
Like the Beetle, the Kombi van has received numerous nicknames worldwide, including the “microbus“, “minibus”, and due to its popularity during the 1960s counter-culture movement, the “Hippie Van“.
