This ’67 VW pickups has the framework for the optional canvas top you could get for the bed. It also shows one of the great things about air-cooled VWs. While I was taking these photos, the owner was replacing an exhaust port gasket. It’s a myth that air-cooled Vee Dubs were reliable. No more reliable than any other car of their vintage. What they were was that they were easy to fix. John Muir taught a generation car mechanics their first lessons (and created the “for the complete idiot” genre of do it yourself guides) with How To Keep Your Volkswagen Alive, whose title indicates just how prone vintage VWs were to break down.

"...I've been over to Cars In Depth on many occasions. Barring the whole 3D thing which drives me up the wall (that's a personal thing, though), I like the content, the writing, and the simple formatting. You do a great job over there, and I am impressed."
