Classic VW BuGs Forgotten Beetle Ancestor Is Going To Be Restored

Found this on my internet travels! Jalopnik! Jason Torchinsky

I’ve written before about the fascinating and sad tale of Josef Ganz, the Jewish engineer who designed much of what would become the Volkswagen Beetle before being erased from history by all those unpleasant Nazis. Now, the lone surviving example of a car that’s the most direct VW Beetle ancestor, the Ganz-designed Standard Superior, is going to finally be restored. Well, if they get the funding.
