Vochos/Beetles; Mexico’s Energizer Bunnies

I keep thinking of a series on Vochos (Beetles) in Mexico where they were produced (w/Brazil) for 20 years. They are still going – many of them and intrigue me. I never owned one except for a short, unhappy error of a Porsche 914 which was a Beetle masquerading as a mid-engine sports car. Regrettable error on my part, incompetence on Porsche/VW’s.

They were simple, durable, cheap and “cute” but the later ones suffered from worn-out tools & dies as well as the functions of an air-cooled power-plant in tropical Mexico.
