Re: VW's new microbus

No resemblence at all to the VW bus. Looks exactly like a slightly different Honda element

"looks like an Element"


Or one of those Scion....Things. Or one of those amazingly, unbelievably ugly Cube things with the window that doesn't go around the corner. When there are so many good ideas, who comes up with this stuff?
