RealRides of WNY - 1967 VW

I’m pretty sure that black bumpers weren’t a factory-installed choice back when this 1967 Volkswagen 1300 was new. But an in-dash radio was. And VW devoted most of a brochure page to it, whose story began “Ever thought what a lot of difference it can make to have a car radio?” Mostly tongue-in-cheek, the reasons spanned the gamut from “On the way to the office you can tune in to the news bulletin and see if your watch is right,” to “…and on Saturdays you needn’t miss the football results if you’re in the car — it would be a pity if you’d won the pools and didn’t know it.” Lol… We saw this one over the summer in Buffalo.
