1969 Volkswagen Type 2 Review
My First Car And My Wifes Daily Driver. — this was my wife's and I's first car, we knew nothing about cars before buying it. 4 years and two trips across the country and we have learned to do all our own work. this car taught us to work together and gave us confidence in the garage. I will never turn my back on air -cooled VW'S
Pros: parts are cheap and easy to find, drove this cross country twice, no prblems
Cons: very slow
