The original air-cooled Beetle teeters between cult and classic status, but either way the following for these cars remains huge. Magazines, clubs, web forums, shows and unrivalled parts availability make buying and owning a classic Beetle more attractive than ever. The author traces the Beetle’s continuous production run from 1945 to 2003, taking note of the more important specification changes over the years, including the popular Karmann Cabriolet. The process of buying a Beetle is explained, and the author gives a guide to its subsequent care. This book is the perfect companion for beginners and long-term enthusiasts alike.
