The two VW models are lovely, no doubt.   However, as an appreciator of vintage vehicles, I cannot get over the incredible condition of that 1952 VW.   It is utterly pristine, like it just came down the assembly line, and then went straight to detailing.   Those early 50s examples are fascinating to see up close.   My buddy in college had a '54 with many of these features.   Notice here the side air vent ports, and semaphore turn signals inside the window frame.  The very first ones imported into the US, starting I think in 1949, had a hole to crank the engine over by hand if the battery was dead.  That might have been removed by '52.  I was hoping there would be an upclose view of the beautiful model's foot on the accelerator; those early ones did not have a flat gas pedal, but instead a roller wheel setup.   Would have loved to see a closeup of the lovely gal in the blue dress use her high heel pump try to operate that roller, particularly while cranking it.   Had to be difficult, maybe why she gave up early.   Nice find.

 No offense or anything and it's nothing against old cars but I can't stand old cars i like new stuff maybe it's because I was only born in 1992 but I'm not a big fan of carburated cars

 not bad. @badmotor,

ALL cars are carburated. the difference between a fuel injection and direct carburation is that a fuel injector has a computer run tool when the fuel line input is that controls how much fuel SHOULD go into the carburator stoping you from flooding it with fuel.

To start a carburator car you have to pump the gas to get air flow, the more air flow, the more the engine breaths and the more fuel is drawn in the carburator, holding the gas pedal lets buildup escape through the top. so without creating a vaccum causing the engine to seize with fuel you slowly pump the pedal giving more air mixture into the carburator until there is enough mixture of air, fuel and spark causing ignition of the fuel making the system fire and the piston to speed up to full rotation running the engine.

What a fuel injector does is it sits where the stopper for fuel line is and it calculates how much fuel mixture there is for a spark and squirts fuel evenly.

so while you say you hate old cars that are carburators, new cars have carburators too, they just changed how it looks because fuel injection made the process the engine takes different.
