5.0 out of 5 stars Dummy's Guide Jan. 26 2011
By Jason Moore - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I felt this book is aimed at someone that knows nothing about old Volkswagens. Having said that, I also feel that the only person that would buy this book is someone that already owns an old Volkswagen. That's exactly why I bought it.
Printed in England, where they like to spell tires 'tyres', so little things like that can be distracting.
Not too much good info beyond what I already knew. Wouldn't buy again if it was lost/stolen/destroyed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Written for British audience July 30 2007
By Robert J. Plumer - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
It's a nice handy guide to VW Beetles. It is written for UK so VW's pictured are usually right-hand drive. Currency's are in pounds also. Other than that good info can be found with some handy buying guides and tips for those looking to purchase one of these wonderful cars.
4.0 out of 5 stars Good for tips to inspect a classic bug Nov. 10 2007

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is good for telling you what to look for when inspecting an older beetle. It does not tell you much about the different models / years except in a very brief detail. It does not contain anything about new beetles. When it said it went to 2003 I thought it might, but that is for beetles made in Mexico.

A helpful guide, but I plan on buying a book that explains more about the vehicles.

By BK - Published on
Format: Paperback
Great little book! May seem expensive for a 60-page paperback but it's concise and to the point yet packed with useful information. I would recommend it especially for a novice.
