Early VW 1500 publicity photos

High resolution scans of some great early publicity photos were just posted over on The Samba's Type 3 forums . This one of four 1500s on the banked curve of a test track is a classic. The others are shots of prototypes with some odd features that were discontinued before production started. Check out the forum thread and join the discussion.

Addendum: I posted this just hours before The Great Samba Crash of 2007. The images and discussion were lost in the crash, so here are the additional images (at much lower resolution):
