Yeah, he was interviewed about it, yeeeeeears ago, for Retro Rides:christ...that was back in 2004 lol..Ive got the book somewhere. its crap!
He's got a point :lol:Why do you consider over 21 million people foolish, and name the VW Beetle as a crap car?
I don't consider 21 million people foolish. If you bought a Beetle between the late '40s and about 1970 you were probably buying a reasonable car. What I don't get is the reverence that the car is treated with today. As far as I'm concerned its time has long passed. Plus, I've driven several Beetles and I found them universally awful, as you might expect from something designed before the Second World War. Whereas, for example, at least the Austin Maestro has surprisingly good steering feel. Why is it that Beetle enthusiasts' first line of defence is that it sold in huge numbers? Is Coronation Street their favourite TV programme? Is Coca-Cola their favourite drink? Is popularity automatically synonymous with worth? Is it bollocks.
