Sir,
I would like to add my shout “agin” your over-praising of that horrible little motor car the Volkswagen !

Mainly due to your many words of praise in the past few months, I purchased such a vehicle on arriving back in this country in January, and learnt to thoroughly detest the thing.

It is noisy, uncomfortable on long runs, and greatly addicted to hedge-hopping, besides being impossibly small inside. I found the utmost difficulty in removing my 6 ft. and 14 1/2 stone from the driving seat, and the back just contained my two small children of five and seven years ! It corners well, but no better (and I always drive flat out) than many cheaper motors which do not indulge in sliding their back-ends at the slightest provocation.

It doesn’t look like a car, the engine doesn’t sound like an engine and it’s German ! I have replaced this mount with a Citroen Light Fifteen, and must confess that I have never driven such an impeccably attractive motor before. That “vintage feel,” willing engine and superb “train-rail” cornering has converted me ! I have owned many motors of note in handling, Lagonda, Bentley, Morgan—but this Citroen seems to retain a little bit of each and something of its own.

However, if I continue, Ill sound like the Editor of Motor Sport on his pet theme, the Volkswagen !! !

Please, sir, no more VW !

I am, Yours, etc.,

Leeds 7. R.S. Aspinall,
