Re: Newb that's hooked!
You're in the right place. You'll find enthusiasts here.
In fact, you've already found an enthusiast of air-cooled VWs. I've actually only ever owned one in my life. But I just loved it. And I love all the rest of them.
That's my idea of transportation; a simple drive train and some weather protection.
I do admire more sleek and complex cars. I just wish that our roads weren't clogged up with one Starship Enterprise after another, after another, and so on.
