Whoa, does Volkswagen want to bring back the Microbus?


Flower children,

It looks like Volkswagen is considering bringing back the Microbus, a symbol of your generation I think I read once. The company wants more of a presence in the North American market; suggestions that it re-make the Microbus (or Kombi, depending on where you’re from) quickly followed.

And here’s the business, straight from a senior VW official:

We’re looking at ways to produce the Microbus that will make it competitive in North America. At the moment there is no firm decision but, with the exchange rate the way it is, there is no way we could entertain building it in Europe.

So there you have it, VW wants to bring her back, maybe.

Now, does this news appeal to anyone not a product of the 1960s?
