Just when "retro" was seeming popular . . .
Perhaps this is the final nail in the retro coffin, and all I have to say about that is - good riddance. With Ford pulling the plug on the Thunderbird, and Beatle sales falling fast, VW has decided not to bring its new micro bus to the U.S. VW must have checked the numbers and figured out that Americans are in no mood to be reminded of yesteryear. The original VW Bus was a classic symbol of 1960's America, but the new one will be a Euro only affair. I stand with my fellow Americans in looking forward to the day when we never have to stand the sight of another car that reminds us of just how old we truly are.
