|Retro Vehicles: Is Volkswagen Next?
Retro styled vehicles are all the rage today... Given VW’s long running popularity, other long since retired models are certainly worthy of being copied, don’t you agree? The Karmann Ghia, the Thing, and the Scirocco are a few that come to mind, however they aren’t the ones slated for a comeback. Yes, VW’s famous “Bus” or Microbus is scheduled to return...
|I Like Your THING!
John Snell X
