Remembering Volkswagen Greats Magazine

1970-1978

At the height of the VW craze, and on the coat tails of Dune Buggies and Hot VW's dominance, we were graced with Volkswagen Greats Magazine. This was a fun publication that always (well, almost always) had great cover art work, and typically wrapped it's how to's and project's within a single issue.

It's easy to assume that VW Greats remorphed itself after death as VW Trends, which started in 1980, but in fact it was reborn as VW&Porsche Magazine, which is a publication I never payed attention to.

Starting as a quarterly publication, it quickly grew to bi-monthly, then briefly monthly, settling back to bi-monthly until it ultimatly disappeared like the Volkswagen air cooled engines America was enthralled with.

These magazines a not for sale (well, not at this time anyways) and this web page was originally built to help me keep track of which issues I already have, as I seem to have a knack of buying issues I already have, (like 5 August 1974 issues)

Click the little picture over there and the cover will appear right here. When you're done, feel free to drop me a line with any corrections or comments. or not...
