Don’t get me wrong. I’m not making a political or social statement with this image. I’m just saying that I want a VW, just like the one I had when I was in my twenties. They are still available. Still running well. Still owned and maintained. And they are not pricey either. Yes: they don’t have all sorts of mod-cons that are arguably essential these days. But there is no price on nostalgia and simple reliability. I want a VW model 1 again.
