Just a little comment.... There are some people here in Europe, that have put
AlfaRomeo boxers into the rear end of different VWs. I have seen a mag once, a
squareback, roof chopped, wheel base chopped [SWB!  :-)] and an AlfaRomeo 1,7
Twin Cam boxer stuffed into the rear. Nice!

'73 Square
'68 Bug
'88 Vanagon Syncro
