After more than seven decades of turning heads on roads all over the world, it's time to bid the VW Beetle a fond farewell. The last Bug left the assembly line last year, and Volkswagen just launched a nostalgia-filled campaign to say goodbye. 

The thing is, it sure looks like there might be an electric Beetle in the works, which would be relevant to the interests of all the people currently shedding a tear over the car. Regardless of whether or not this is the end, the Beetle's place in pop culture is secure, from the Love Bug to Bumblebee from Transformers. I never drove one, but I MAY have played Punch Buggy with my brother as a child. No punch backs. VW's tribute to the Beetle debuted on NYE: watch it below.
