Cohort Pic(k) of the Day: Shorty VW Bus

Don Kincl found a veteran of the shorty VW bus craze that swept the land like a minor pandemic back in the late 60s and 70s. Yes, these were not that uncommon, kids. It was a time when creative impulses were indulged, especially when it came to VWs. And yes, that “drag bar” in the back was highly functional, as it didn’t take much to lift the front wheels.

I wonder what’s the fastest anyone ever dared to drive one of these?
