The Volkswagen Drive In

From The Netherlands, a uber cool site to celebrate Volkswagen's 60th anniversary in the country and challenge your music knowledge. Everything it's in Dutch, but don't panic, just wait for the site to load, and then click on "speel het spel" to start playing...

You have to match every song with the decade it belongs to... I did 11 at the first attempt, and you?

As Dick explained me, the site it's the recognition of the typical songs that revitalises the rich Volkswagen history, but above all, it is much fun to play and guess whether Bill Haley was popular during the Fifties when the Volkswagen Beetle was introduced or during the Sixties when Volkswagen revealed its first mini Van.

Congrats to Achtung! for the great work. My only doubt it's why they called the site Volkswagen Drive In and not Volkswagen Juke Box...

The site is great. If they chose better car pictures maching each other better (in terms of color and angle) it would be perfect. Good job!

What a great site -- to bad it's not in English. It's worth the wait for the site to load...

This is a nice example of what gamevertising should be: nice, playful, funny and intelligent. This is sure to attract a lot of visitors.

Good work, Dutchmen. Maybe you would consider a translation in order to make the whole world enjoy the good old VW's.

He Guys and Dolls

Thanks for the comments, we may consider it translating it! But as bandwidth already goes through the roof, this may not be too wise :)
Concerning the name.. In Holland a 'Drive In' is the word for a 'Mobile disco drive in show' You know that man/woman that used play records at your highschool party.. I can imagine 'DriveIn' being explained differently.. And yes.. Jukebox would have done the Job also.
