My first car was a 1967 Beetle. Over the past forty-two years I've owned a total of ten Volkswagens (including Beetles, Super Beetles, Rabbit Convertibles/Cabriolets & Jettas). That being the case, I enjoy reading about the history of the marque as well as keeping abreast of the different models available over the years. The Volkswagen Illustrated Buyer's Guide provides the reader with an overview of just that, the history of Volkswagen, as well as useful information on different Volkswagen models available (thru 1998). Like many of these 'Buyer's Guides' this is an enjoyable book full of interesting facts and information, perhaps not a buyer's guide in the truest sense of the word, but it is a wonderful book for any Volkswagen enthusiast.
I love reading about the history of Volkswagen, as well as reading about interesting models such as the original 111 Sedan (the Beetle), the Super Beetle, the Karmann Ghia, the original Beetle Convertible, the 'Thing' and even more contemporary classics such as the Scirocco and the Rabbit Convertible/Cabriolet. If you've owned Volkswagens in the past (or present), I'm sure you will find this delightful book very interesting & enjoyable reading. Highly Recommend!
