1973 Volkswagen Type 2Review
A Car To Find The Meaning Of Life In. — My brother and I bought this car in 2004 and have enjoyed every minute of it. The acceleration and top speed are horrible, but what do you expect from 63 hp. Handling is always interesting, but again, what do you expect from a box on wheels. Braking is suprising good for such a big vehicle. Styling is exactly pretty, but it is an icon wherever it goes. For being over 35 years old, the car is still very solid. This car is still alot of fun to drive and you get smiles wherever you go.
Pros: appearance, the half camping package, braking
Cons: acceleration, top speed, handling, pretty much anything to do with performance.
