This is more than a book on how to fix Volkwagens. It does a terrific job of accomplishing that with illustrations making simple jobs like changing plugs easy for the amateur as well as explanations to enable one to completely rebuild an engine if one is gifted enough to accomplish that. In addition there is excellent social commentary that VW owners will learn from Even if you don't intend to fix your VW but just want to understand the process, but this book. You will also learn how you came to be a VW owner

I purchased this book when it first came out, and was very impressed with the simplicity of its design and presentation. I have worked on nearly every air cooled VW and Porsche from 1959 through 1974, and had a Porsche shop in Santa Barbara and Tucson from 1969 through 1976. This is without a doubt the best fundamentals book available that I have seen for the novice to maintain and understand their VW. My hat is off to John Muir for his marvelous contribution.

I remember having this book in around 1976 when I burchased my first Bug, a 1973 Super Beetle. I am definatly not the best mechanic so for someone to put this in as easy terms as it was in this book was great for me. the fact that you would be reading along very serious in thought and run into a joke about something almost made it fun to have an issue with the car. I wish I still had the copy. It had a white cover on it, not the blue that it seems to be now.Thanks for what you did!!
