Now we are into the 3 rd generation. A 1976 VW Bus which we tow.
Slabman you had the older generation 62 Bug. 6 volt, with a 1300 engine. No gas guage.
They were tough but no heat and you could hardly see at night with the old 6 volt system but they were everyones cheap transportation in the old days.
It's the same way with the older Buses before 1968. They are nostalgic but weren't very practical for todays hiways.
