  • My daughter is asking for her first bicycle. She is four years of age. If I bought one today, in a couple of years she would have outgrown it. Is there a bike that can be made to get bigger in size as the years go by?

  • It was year 1975 and VW sales were dropping. Japanese auto makers were rapidly advancing inside the US market with little box types far cheaper than a Beetle. To address this threat, VW came up with a small front wheel drive car that was Spartan-like in every way. Enter the VW Rabbit, a water-cooled 4 cylinder, with a transversely mounted engine driving the front wheels for around the same price as a Japanese compact sedan. From that time on, the Rabbit has replaced the Beetle in the US consumer market. With this development, the Rabbit started off the influx of a new Volkswagen generation.

  • Absolutely right…great post. There is a lot to learn, or at least a lot that it is a good idea to learn before you start.
    Thanks,

  • There’s something just that little bit special about it. Those clever men and women behind such iconic and era defining vehicles as the Beetle and the Golf GTi certainly have a knack for making compact cars.

    Yeah, uh, that would be the Third Reich.
