Just consider a Volkswagen or a Porsche. What I mean by this is it's hard to remove the Hitler from a Carerra.

Yeah! True. Interesting. Exactly.

No doubt Hitler was more of a consideration for potential customers in 1947, when "The Bug" first invaded America. Back then, just a few years after the end of World War II, presumably more people were aware that Adolf had personally directed the design and manufacture of "The People's Car."

VW sold exactly 2 Bugs in 1947. Generations passed and fewer people know that particular fact, almost 75 years now, since the invasion of Poland.

Have you ever owned a VW? Porsche? Would knowing of Hitler's involvement make a difference in your choice? Porsche is arguably a work of art.

What about some person who already owns a VW, then finds out about its sinister provenance?
