Can you still get prime quality for $1.26 a pound?
A pound of Volkswagen isn’t cheap compared to other cars. But what you pay for is the quality. Prime quality.
Just look at what you get for your money:
13 pounds of paint, some of it in places you can’t even see. (So you can leave a Volkswagen out overnight and it won’t spoil.)
A watertight, airtight, sealed steel bottom that protects against rocks, rain, rust and rot.
Over 1,100 inspections per one Beetle.
1,014 inspectors who are finicky that they reject parts you could easily ride around with and not even detect there was anything wrong.
Electronic Diagnosis that tells you what’s right and wrong with important parts of your car.
A 1600 cc aluminum-magnesium engine that gets 25 miles to a gallon of regular gasoline.
Volkswagen’s traditionally high resale value.
Over 22,000 changes and improvements on a car that was well built to begin with.
What with all the care we take in building every single Volkswagen, we’d like to call it a filet mignon of a car. Only one problem. It’s too tough.
