I've always been impressed with it's engineering and performance, but I don't like it's cartoonish appearance.
It's not a style I would want to be seen in.

sorry.

Depends :D

Being seen isn't exactly the same as the view from the drivers seat.
And because of the price tag, it doesn't bother me to be seen driving fast 'trash' lol.
I've done it all my life, why change now?

My first VW was a used '59 I bought for $175. 36 hp.
Got me through college and several trips through the southwest.
Easy to fix, cheap to drive.
I bought a '62 later on with out a motor for $50 and put a Corvair engine in it.
Pretty quick for it's day lol.
Sorry, no pictures.

No lol.
Those were the days when my pocket book had to ignore imagery.
The Corvair engine simply hung out the back without the lid.
No mag wheels.
A low buck project.

While it was Corvair powered, the transaxle was still VW.
I broke a lot of them :D
