Inspiration - Vintage VW Split-window Logo Buses

It seems that long before Red Bull, Radio Stations and unknown hip-hop artists started visually polluting our streets with promotional vehicle wraps, Volkswagen was were already driving down a similar road, but one that was designed quite a bit better. In fact, it was a big enough part of VW's business that they produced dealer books to showcase this very promotional tool. Today we get a look at some fantastic scans from a VW spilt-window logo bus dealer book.

Awesome, this is my dream car!
Out of those samples only a few were tastefully done.... the Coca-Cola, G.M. Reüb and Seidensticker are my favorites. :)

Love V-DUB.
I love the beige and green striped bus, with the red dot logo. I can't make out the company name. Anybody know?
So sad that the VW Bulli in its present form no longer has this flair.
Ahhh!!!!! LOve all!
Ah, my favourite VW bus :) My dad had one, long time ago
