Beat the January blues with the February issue of VolksWorld. This month contains a bit of everything, from a masterclass in Bus slamming in the form of the cover star to a totally stock restored Karmann Ghia to die for. More? How about a Subaru engined 1303 or a technical piece on keeping your Beetle warm this winter? Sorted.

The features:
