Man, the more I hear about TDI's, and the long reputation of VW electrics,
the more I love my old A2's.

Everything important is mechanical, which Germans do best. 
If I lived in Nepal, I wouldn't even need a battery, just park it at the top
of the mountain before I shut it off.

Hagar could probably gravity-start his bunny going down his driveway.

When I was a kid, my '29 Durant's battery was just enough to supply
ignition, it was either crank it, or park on a hill.

Anybody want a picture of a 29 Durant?

Too bad I can't crank the volks.
(must investigate a compression release like the Listers)
