I think I've misunderstood and mixed up Wolfsburg, Germany with the Invasion
VW plant visit - sorry!

I went through the VW Academy and Museum about two years ago with my
students and some faculty members from my school. We couldn't go through the
plant at the time because they were adding the new Atlas SUV line to go with
the Passat line that has been producing that car for North America since the
plaint open about 5 or 6 years ago. The only thing we had to pay for was
lunch at the cafeteria inside(good food by the way). 
The museum is great. Don't know if it's still there but there was a 1943 KDF
inside. I about died when I saw it setting there. Oldest VW I've ever seen
in person by far. Other cool VWs there too. I was talking to them and told
about Clementine and we agreed that if the Passat had never replaced the T3s
this would be where the T3s for north America would be produced now. Just
something to think about.
