So i told her it was in for repairs and i was using the "stepney" engine for a while, all old vws came with two engines because they were used in places like remote africa and a breakdown there would mean certain death. For a moment she actually believed it!
That is indeed funny !

and was passionaite about them, would we be able to get these
priceless cars for ourselves ? What would have happened to the
already soaring prices ?

I think our community is strong enough to take care of these jewels,
and though there is definately a need for awareness, too much hype can kill the joy too.

Let the sleeping Dogs lie !!
fully, with the kind of prices that are already prevailing in the market, with more awareness, the prices would go crazier. And to think of someone buying a mustang or a karmann ghia just for the heck of it, now that would be really sad
