    Got it in 1968 when I started college.  Rolled it on a rain-slickened country road before long.  Replaced it with another '61 but not in as good a shape.  The battery was located under the back seat as I recall.

    They were the "People's Car" and thus had to go the way of the dodo.

    A petty criminal is someone with predatory instincts but insufficient capital to form a corporation.

      there is a thriving subculture that rebuilds vws from the 50s on, including buses and the karmann ghia.

      i'm not aware of too many things-i know what i know, if you know what i mean-e.b.
