He took to Instagram to share a selfie of him in the drivers seat one last time, also noting how it was the first car he ever bought! We aren’t sure why he decided to auction the car, but after all was said and done, the car sold for $46,200.

Mike Wolfe’s VW Panel Van In The Snow http://www.celebritycarsblog.com/2016/01/mike-wolfe-1962-vw-panel-van/ http://www.celebritycarsblog.com/2016/01/mike-wolfe-1962-vw-panel-van/#respond Thu, 28 Jan 2016 12:54:23 +0000 http://www.celebritycarsblog.com/?p=22828 While the eastern side of the United States was getting rocked with snow, dealing with 20+ car pile ups, 17 hour traffic jams, and thousands of cars were being abandoned, Mike Wolfe from the hit TV show “American Pickers” decided to use the opportunity to put his 1962 Volkswagen Panel Van to work (and also get some awesome shots of it covered with snow)! Who knew a rusty old van could look so cool!

Clarkson Shows Off His VW Golf GTI http://www.celebritycarsblog.com/2015/10/clarkson-vw-golf-gti/ http://www.celebritycarsblog.com/2015/10/clarkson-vw-golf-gti/#comments Sun, 11 Oct 2015 12:27:12 +0000 http://www.celebritycarsblog.com/?p=22439 Despite the enormous pressure VW are under at the moment due to their diesel engine emissions software scandal, the most outspoken and influential car guy on the planet has purchased a Golf GTI.

Jeremy Clarkson has also taken time out from the production of his new Amazon Prime format to defend the German company. In true Jezza style, the ex Top Gear presenter used phrases like, “eco mentalists” and “soft-in-the-head governments”, perhaps making a more important statement relating to the damaging aftermath: “The fallout would be immense because [it] owns Audi, Bugatti, Bentley, Lamborghini, Porsche, Seat and Skoda as well. So they’d also go to the wall.”

Clarkson also took to twitter and released photos of his new VW Golf GTI, his comments: “I’m happy with my new car”, and “This is why I bought it. Couldn’t give a stuff about how much nitrogen it’s producing”.

Although nitrogen is a speciality of the diesel engine and Jezza’s turbo-charged 2.0-L petrol GTI produces more CO2 than nitrogen, we know what he is getting at – despite VW breaking all the rules, manufactures are producing cars with powerful yet impressively economical engines, and ultimately VW’s deception isn’t enough to drive customers into buying Japanese or Korean vehicles over German.

Chris Pratt’s Self-Built Custom Volkswagen Beetle http://www.celebritycarsblog.com/2014/09/chris-pratt-hot-rod-beetle/ http://www.celebritycarsblog.com/2014/09/chris-pratt-hot-rod-beetle/#comments Wed, 17 Sep 2014 12:50:22 +0000 http://www.celebritycarsblog.com/?p=21080 When we think of Chris Pratt, we can’t help but think of Andy Dwyer on NBC’s Parks and Recreation. We’re big fans of Pratt’s work and now that we know what he drives, we’re even bigger fans. Jalopnik shared an article recently with photos they found of Pratt’s self built, fully customized hot-rod Volkswagen Beetle.

We always enjoy hearing about celebrities that drive something other than the Audi that Audi gave them.

Tanner Foust’s New Daily Driver http://www.celebritycarsblog.com/2014/09/tanner-foust-volkswagen-touareg/ http://www.celebritycarsblog.com/2014/09/tanner-foust-volkswagen-touareg/#respond Thu, 11 Sep 2014 12:53:19 +0000 http://www.celebritycarsblog.com/?p=21067 Tanner Foust shared a photo of his new daily driver recently, a 2014 Volkswagen Touareg TDI R Line. While the Touareg may seem like just another SUV to some, it sounds like Foust has some serious plans for the car because his caption on the photo indicates, “this is the last time you’ll see this thing stock”. We’d expect nothing less from a professional racing and stunt driver and we’ve got a feeling this thing will be pretty mean when it’s done.

Heidi Klum Drives Topless In Her Volkswagen http://www.celebritycarsblog.com/2013/11/heidi-klum-volkswagen-beetle/ http://www.celebritycarsblog.com/2013/11/heidi-klum-volkswagen-beetle/#comments Sun, 10 Nov 2013 18:16:30 +0000 http://www.celebritycarsblog.com/?p=19706 Ok, so she’s really not topless, but Heidi Klum and her bodyguard turned boyfriend were spotted cruising with the top down in a Volkswagen Beetle recently. This car’s definitely not as sweet as their BMW M6, but it really doesn’t matter because Heidi can make any car look good — especially when it’s topless.

Here Is Your Chance To Pick Like an American Picker http://www.celebritycarsblog.com/2013/06/you-can-buy-mike-wolfe-1953-split-window-vw/ http://www.celebritycarsblog.com/2013/06/you-can-buy-mike-wolfe-1953-split-window-vw/#comments Mon, 24 Jun 2013 12:00:31 +0000 http://www.celebritycarsblog.com/?p=18715 It’s probably obvious that I’m a big fan of American Pickers and Mike Wolfe.  I idolize his ability to find amazing cars that he gets at pretty good prices like his 62 Panel Van and his Von Dutch VW Motorcycle. But here it looks like one lucky person with some pretty deep pockets has a chance to buy a 1953 “Zwitter” VW Bug that was picked by Mike. A Zwitter is a Beetle manufactured between October 1952 thru March 10, 1953.  The Beetle retained the rear window in two split halves, but had the newly redesigned dashboard more commonly seen in the Oval Rear Window Beetles thru the 1957 model year.

I’m honestly suprised that Mike Would sell this car as it seems perfect for his personal collection.  If you recall we originally saw Mike post this about a year ago not long after he picked it.

See it here on eBay  More pictures after the jump!

Tim Allen’s 57 Ragtop VW http://www.celebritycarsblog.com/2012/09/tim-allens-57-ragtop-vw/ http://www.celebritycarsblog.com/2012/09/tim-allens-57-ragtop-vw/#comments Wed, 26 Sep 2012 20:30:14 +0000 http://www.celebritycarsblog.com/?p=16982 We don’t see much of Tim Allen these days but that doesn’t mean he’s fallen off his car game.  This photo is a bit old but bubbled up today and I thought it was worth sharing.  The last time we saw a pic from this garage Tim was selling his ZO6.  Looks like the Ford GT is new and it also appears the Ford RS200 is gone or parked else where.
