[T3] Wolfsburg...or not


Ok, a few months back, i went to the wolfsburg site on the internet, you 
know, the place where you go and tell them your VIN # and they'll send you a 
letter with all the information they have on file for your car.  I've done 
this before for my bus years ago and had no problems with it, until now.

Just today, i got the mail, and saw that i had received something from 
Germany, i didn't know it was Wolfsburg (till i opened the letter) and i 
nearly forgot about the whole birth certificate thing, but i quickly 
remembered that i had requested it.  Ok, the letter was like two or three 
paragraphs long explaining how the records for older cars are kept on 
fragile microfilm (or was it fische?, anyways) and that some are so bad that 
it can only be handled by specialists and others have been destroyed do to 
over use and improper handling.  So, if they don't have the information i 
need about my car, is there anywhere else i can get it from?  Will they ever 
get the info off the micro-whatever to let me know, i really feel like i 
need to know this and i need some help.

One last little interesting thing, the spelled my last name wierd, ok, my 
last name is Schroeder, it is german, i'm third or fourth generation 
american, or however you say it, my great grandparents came over from 
Germany to here.  Ok, but when i filled out the form, i spelled my name like 
i spelled it above, however, on the letter i received, instead of puttin oe, 
they did the o with the two dots ove5Ef anyone here knows German, i'd 
also like to know if that was just a typo or if that's how my name would be 
spelled if i was in germany, oh yeah, the pres of Germany has my last name  
:)

Thank you
Jacob Schroeder
