Ah, the humble VW. It’s common knowledge that you can’t kill ‘em – but they sure can get funky looking after a while. When the time comes for a re-do, the thousands of Volkswagen resto shops that dot the American landscape can revive even the fuzziest of these original four bangers. It’s to those garages and workshops that GreenLight dedicates this “Volkshaus VW Repair Shop” set of five old school beetles and buses, in various stages of restoration. ThThe painted on decos range from worn and primered to fully reborn, and the castings for the Samba bus, Type 1 Transporter panel van, and three Beetles are sharp and well-scaled. In the case of the real cars – and these scaled-down versions – it’s amazing what a little paint and TLC can do. — Joe Kelly Jr. greenlightcollectibles.com
