Whoa whoa whoa.  Doesn't trust it for long trips?  The consensus there is that you should fix up your jalopy and chuck that fear into the sea.

An aircooled Bug.  They're still plentiful, cheaper/easier to buy parts for compared to a T3, and existing mechanical knowledge transfers over extremely well.
