" Highly recommended for both novice and seasoned bus (or beetle) owners. This book does exactly what it says on the tin ... or cover! The VW air-cooled engine is one of those iconic bits of engineering design and it can be maintained by anyone with a basic tool kit and willingness to get their hands dirty! "
