    VW will end the Combi (who's still made in Brazil) after a run of 63 years

    I'm still waiting for them to come out with the VW California in North America. I saw a Combi and can finally identify it. I didn't even know what it was.

    Why not? I doubt a lot of people died in these things. There are plenty of 1963 somethings on the road.
