    Since we all love Volkswagens, if you haven't already, may I recommend "The People's Car," by Bernhard Rieger. An excellent history of it, from the idea for a "volks wagen" by ol' Adolf himself, through the British takeover to produce vehicles for rebuilding Germany, and the start of the Volkswagen branding.

    I think I read that story.
    I noticed in my youth, when I wasn't thinking about sex, that many of my older antique car friends were driving a VW beetle as their second car. When I asked a few they said it's as simple and easy to work on as our Model T's and others.
    At least the gas guage was easy to use.o_O The heater wasn't so great in January in Illinois.:rednose:

    Dad told me about driving from Dillsburg (near Mechanicsburg), PA to Washington, DC, for a meeting at the Pentagon; he drove with the top down, wearing his officer's dress blue uniform and greatcoat, white scarf and combination cap, while the snow fell!
