When I lived in Canada I had two Beetles – a white and a red one. The white did 200,000 plus miles before it died of acute rust. The second, red one, did 120,000 miles before I traded it in. Canada is COLD in the winter and very snowy. No prob said Mrs Beetle. I am not mechanically minded (ask any club member) so what went on under the back grill was a complete mystery. Click on the “pic” and you can see the engine “start up.”
Much as I would I have liked my Beetles were never “tricked out” like this one.
