Volkswagen has been a part of movie and television culture as long as it has existed; as a prop, a character, and a way to get around.
This Volkswagen in the movies is brought to you by 1986 classic Pretty in Pink. Starring Molly Ringwald, John Cryer, Andrew McCarthy, James Spader, Annie Potts, and Harry Dean Stanton. Pretty in Pink is about an outcast girl who likes a wealthy, popular boy but has a quirky best friend that is in love with her and she has to realize that dating outside the social circle isn’t as easy as she hoped. The Volkswagen that makes it’s appearance in Pretty in Pink is a pink 1959 Karmann Ghia that Andie (Molly Ringwald) drives.
