THE ERIN'S CAR!After all, it's not unprecedented.
I know NOTHING about cars and car engines, but way back, before marriage and kids, I bought a 1972 black, chrome-bumpered VW bug. Within a year, I ended up donating it to Kent, Ohio's own Kent Zendo. I lost track of it after that. Maybe it's still in the backyard and they use it as a flower pot. twinkly
uh oh...looks like youve been terminated...was it the beetle or the hurry cane you wanted?
Or maybe it's selling for $21,000 in Texas. Ignore the spiel in the ad about 'ol Fuhrer. Fact is he hated Porsche for being a national hero in racing development(Auto-Union V-16). He rejected Porsche's design out of hand for a car to emulate Ford's Model T.When other German automakers, who fell over themselves to be chosen at first, realized the car was to sell for 1000 Reichmarks, $360, they ran for the woods, leaving Der Fuhrer to come hat in hand to Porsche, who demanded a factory, and got it.No German citizen ever got a car, and the British were responsible post-war for building the first non-military Beetles. 27 million cars later, their value continues to climb. A mint original camper bus sold two years ago for $216,000.Although I like the new ones, I know nothing about them, except the engine is on the wrong end.
@philbilly...thanks.At some point I think we should be able to get college credit for frequenting this blog.RJ
