Automotive restorers love old VW Beetles, because they're easy to work on and everything is available. Engines and related components are interchangeable between all air-cooled VW models. Even if an engine block is cracked or damaged, replacement cases are readily available in both cast (original) and aluminum (performance).

My Daily Driver

Aside from getting me back and forth to work faithfully and comfortably, my Sport-Trac has transported bicycles, motorcycles, go karts, kayaks, kids, lumber, mulch, furniture, kitchen appliances, engines, transmissions, tires, wheels, and on occasion has made trips to the local dump site.
