We're quickly becoming big fans of Josh Clason and his Depth of Speed video series. We first saw his work when his lenses trained on the Japanese iron of JDM Legends. Clason then delved into the world of pinstriping, and from there he switched to German steel in a shot about the BMW 2002.

Now, he's sticking with Germany but trading the roundel for VW. More specifically, Clason caught up with Volkswagen enthusiast Craig Johnson to capture the beauty of his T1 Transporter.

      VW captured a generation of loyal owners with the bus and the Beetle. They seem to have done a nice update to the new New Beetle, and they would be rather stupid not to also bring out that updated New Bus that they have shown a few times over the last few years. They might never reclaim the same level of loyalty as these other vehicles, but they might be able to at least get the attention of the younger generation.

      I owned a VW bus In the Late 60's Early 70's Loved it .wish I could find one now. We traveled every where with that bus. We had a boy scout troop.They went to many camping trips in that bus. I bet they all remember the fun they had. It was economical to operate and never ever broke down. It just ran and served us well. Ellen

      I loved my bus. A crib matress would fix behind the back seat over the engine. The engine would lull the kids to sleep.

      Absolutely well done video. I've watched it several times already. I look for more in the future.

      My first car was a 2 year old '64 VW bug, second car was a new '70 VW bug. Even though I had fun driving them & get nostalgic when I see one, I 'gotta' say they were noisy, kind of peculiar in that the battery went under the back seat and neither one lasted too long before requiring very expensive work. The 1970 bug was well maintained, but 6 years later was costing too many expensive repairs, even though it was only driven some 8,000 miles per year. I traded it in for the then new 1976 VW Rabbit. OMG, the Rabbit was a car 'outta' hell. Throttle cable broke every 2 weeks, catalytic converter gave out in 8 months. I swore no more VW's ever!

        Picked up a 70 beetle in Wolfsburg. When were in the Hotel we were awakened by hundreds of beetles driving by very early in the morning. All the workers who received company discounts had beetles and commuted with them. It was a surrealistic sight we will never forget.
