I was told about the good prices that we could get on a new VW, so we bought this. I drove it for about 6 months, then had the need for a little more power. I picked up a 1500cc VW Transport (truck) engine and added a Judson Supercharger to it. This made the VW a fun little car to drive.
Ended up shipping it back to the States, but soon after traded it in on the 59 Thunderbird.
