Hope For The Kombi – Headline Snapshots

kombi-keep-truckin

Here are a few headlines from the English press which provide a glimmer of hope. Most if not all of these lead back to comments made by Brazilian finance minister Guido Mantega who said the iconic VW bus could be made exempt to new auto safety regulations that begin in 2014. I believe there is a slight error in that last headline it should read, “continuous production in Brazil since 1957,” not 1969. The Kombi is a unique vehicle that should be kept in production. In South America it’s a work horse, beloved by the masses. Viva Kombi! Viva Westfalia!
