   You may have noticed that I have an interest in war era Volkswagens cars. The reason for this is, back during WWII I was employed by the German government to drive these great machines. I was young and wanted away from my parents so I started driving Kubelwagens as you can see in the below pics.

   I also drove Schwimmwagens (my fav) and scouted the country side as you can see in the below pics

   After I was injured in combat, (one of those crappy American Jeeps blew up and shot metal into the back of my head) I was sent to work in the factory that made the Schwimmwagens.

   After the war was over, there wasn't much use to make the Schwims, so they closed the factory, and I sat around a few years until I got interested in VWs cars again. We'll, one of my friends, Joe Vittone, started a company called EMPI and he asked me to help him, so I did. You can see me on the cover of this EMPI catalogue. My head was swollen from the metal still in it.

My head hurts


   Well, I hope you enjoyed my old picture album. Now you can see what kind of VW experience I have.
