The Very Best of Volkswagen
270 x 215mm (portrait)
240 colour photographs
Hardback with dust jacket
This colourful book shows a huge range of Volkswagen air-cooled automobiles, taken from the best of the articles that appeared in the UK's leading VW enthusiasts magazine, VolksWorld. The book shows such classics as the iconic Type 1 Beetle in every form, from the rare Hebmuller convertible to highly modified Beetles modified for the track and drag strip. The ultimate in customised Beetles are found in California and Utah and this book includes examples of the very best, plus a bizarre wrought-iron 'bird-cage' Beetle from Japan.
Naturally the worlds best examples of Type 2 Volkswagens (Bus, Van, Pick-up and Kombi) are featured form the beautifully restored standard examples of Buses and Kombis, via versions powered by Porsche engines, to the weird and wonderful creations wrought by the custom shops of America. When these cars left the VW Wolfsburg production line in Germany, nobody ever imagined what flights of fantasy they would inspire.
Also included in the book are cars such as the infamous Beach Buggy, the rare VW Trekker and Karmann Ghias of every type from Pro Racing Association dragsters to customised cars with multi-hued paintwork.
For anyone with a passing interest in the wide world of collectable Volkswagens, this book covers the diverse world of Beetles and Buses like no other.
An unashamed compilation of feature cars from VolksWorld magazine - and none the worse for that - this attractive hardback covers 60 classic VWs, both standard and modified, each of which is given a spread of excellent colour photos and a brief description. Recommended.

Review by: Classic Car Weekly,
If air-cooled Volkswagens intrigue you, you'll love this book. It's a 128-page compilation showing the breadth of the classic VW scene, from concours standard Beetles and Karmann Ghias to 500bhp turbo-engined de-bumpered customs and slick-shod drag racers. Each vehicle gets two pages, good quality photos and a couple of hundred words telling its story. That means it's nicely fast-paced, focused and satisfying. You'll be sketching your own air-cooled VW look and specification from the moment you put the book down.
