Mexico’s Love Affair with Volkswagen Beetles
If you ever visit Taxco or Puebla, Mexico, it’s like walking down Memory Lane. The streets are filled with vintage Volkswagen Beetle cars, even though they have been banned as taxis by the Mexican government in order to reduce carbon emission. The Beetle, or “Vocho,” endures as its ageless engines still work on Mexico’s sloping hills. It’s also still the preferred mode of transportation by visitors, who can’t get enough of the car’s classic design and its old-time charm.
These Vochos would make Herbie proud!
