I would rate this publication as one of the most useful I have bought in the past 37 years, I currently own a 71 Westfalia and still refer to this book on a regular basis. It taught me most of what I needed to know to keep my 1958, 1966, 1967 and 1969 Bugs alive back in the 70's when I was a VERY poor college student.

I strongly reccommend this book to anyone starting out working on VW's. When I was 16 years old I went to Sears every payday and bought a tool. I purchased every tool that John had listed and use them to this day. What I liked most about the book is he would tell you how not to bust your knuckles. He made working on a VW fun!
Read this book for entertainment and to fix your VW.

John Muir, How to Keep Your Volkswagen Alive - BUY THIS BOOK. You will not find a better book for a bright-eyed, bushy-tailed mechanic-to-be. I've owned VW vans for years and I'm on my 3rd copy. I've saved more money and time with this book (and truthfully, buying a Honda!) when I needed to fix and maintain my VW vans. I even own "How to keep your HONDA alive!". As a young man I loved this book. It's a must have for a Southern California surfer like me!… Read Full Review
