1971 Volkswagen 1600 SquarebackReview
Vw Type 3 — its a classic beauty built tough and what it lacks in performance it more then makes up for in style, its air cooled so no need to top up the radiator with water and gets great miles/gallion, it is a really fun car to drive and very rare car to see on the road
Pros: no raidiator
Cons: lacks top speed
