Needed Lots Of Maintenence On It. — The maximum speed for this car that i've been is 62 going downhill. Not so sure about 0-60, probably 15-20 secs. No power steering, quite heavy. It has had lots and lots of repais made to it. Remodelled the interior, few panels on exterior been replaced. I'm recording all the miles that I have done in a petrol tank, to work out the miles per gallon. This car (bus, van) is very fun to drive, everyone smiles and waves at me as I drive past.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Very fun and friendly. Price value goes up each year.

Cons: 62MPH. Not much HP. Struggles to get up a steep hill.

I Love My Van — Performance- None Build Quality- Good (its 32 years old and still not rusted) Appearance- The best looking vehicle around Cost of ownership- Touchy subject!! LOTS AND LOTS Fun Factor- This isn't a sporty van and it doesn't try to be. The fun factor with them it the sheer enjoyment of owning it and making it your own.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: The look on everyones face and you drive by in the sunshine!

Cons: If you don't like fixing cars, don't buy one !!!!

Aircooled Dream's — I love the look, the lifestyle of a low rider VW (not hippies), the roots of what a VW Aircooled engine. The unpowered performance of a 2.0litres with a big 75 hp 4 speeds gearbox. Equip with a bar and a bed in the back seat

Pros: the best

Cons: unpowered
