How to Keep Your Volkswagen Alive: A Manual of Step-by-Step Procedures for the Compleat Idiot | The Lills VW Bus

How to Keep Your Volkswagen Alive: A Complete Manual of Step-by-Step Procedures for the Compleat Idiot was written by John Muir. It was published in 1969 and it became known as the Volkswagen bible. The ways in which Mr. Muir wrote his explanations were wonderful and the knowledge he offered became priceless to generations of VW owners. The manual allowed us to giggle as we learned and the illustrations, by Peter Aschwaden, added a unique touch. If you have or want an old volkswagen, you need this book!
