Rice of One nice thing about an air-cooled engine: VERSEAS DELIVERY AVAILABLE You never run out of air. 1M2 VOlKtWAOCN Of AMIKICA, INS. Inhale. Exhale. Now you know exactly how the Volkswagen •ngine Is cooled. With air. Water has nothing to do with it. A big fan swooshes cool air through Ihe •ngine and swooshes it out again. The faster you go, the bigger the swoosh. $0 the engine stays calm, cool and collected. - So your Volkswagen can inch along all day In hot and heavy traffic. You may not enjoy it, but at least you won't have to worry about boiling over. You also won't have any worries about draining or flushing the radiator in spring. There is no radiator. Or hoses. Or water pump. Or rust. And so there ore no worries about antifreeze in fall or cracked blocks in winter. If you feel that you owe your Volkswagen's engine a little something special every spring and fall, you can do this much: Just run it once around the block and let it air itself out.
