Franklin did a great job with the Beetle.  I have 6 different ones.

I was briefly working (for fun) at the Franklin Mint retail store that used to be in the Mall of America when this VW was released.  Of the FM models that were available in the store at the time, this VW was NOT a best seller.  Being displayed at the time with many other American 50's and 60's cars, it seemed to get lost in the shuffle.  I personally never got one because I was only interested in American cars at the time.  And it was "white", not a favorite color of mine on cars.  It was/is a nice model though.
