Berlin, May 1945: The majestic entrance to a building in the German capital bears all the scars of the bitter fighting. Parked -- and ruined -- in front of the building is a Volkswagen Schwimmwagen, literally a "VW Swim Wagon." Otherwise known as Type 166, this VW remains the most numerous mass-produced amphibious car in history. Only 163 are known by the Schwimmwagen Registry to remain today, and only 13 have survived without restoration work.
