I dig it. I'd love to see some of those driving around. Would even consider one as a road trip car someday.

I think it looks pretty darn cool. I would be interesting in taking one for a test drive for the heck of it.

I guess I was being to cryptic. It's a FWD minivan. It's as much like the original microbus as the New Beetle is like the original.

Even less. My first thought was "Flex". I drove a Eurovan for 13 years and loved that vehicle. But reliability got too problematic and parts harder and harder to find so I moved on. I really hope the new version looks more like the concept shown a few years ago 'cause I won't buy that thing.

If a new Karmann Ghia were to be styled by the same pen as styled this lump of dog ****, they should not even consider bringing it back.

The KG was a unique vehicle that will never be replayed, and should not, just as the old beetle should have not been redone, and now the vw bus...

At least upcoming New(?) New Beetle will look more like the original.

I'm excited for the bus! Hope they don't overdo and over think it. The original was simple and genius.
