They were both VWs, but neither was a Beetle.

I owned 4 VWs; two beetles, a wagon and a camping bus.  I don't believe the
wagon was sold in the U.S.  In an automotive context, VW is implied when one
writes "beetle."  VW is not implied when one writes "wagon" or "camping
bus."

Right, but "Beetle" refers to a specific model, or series of models,
none of which include "wagon" or "camping bus".

Which is why I wrote that the wagon and camping bus were by VW.  Did you get
up on the wrong side of the bed again?

You said that the wagon and the camping bus were beetles.  Here, I'll
quote it for you:

"I owned two beetles, a VW station wagon and a VW camping bus."
