About the author (2006)

 Richard Copping s interest in the Volkswagen marque began when a Bentley owning schoolmaster gave him a lift in his other car, a Beetle. Richard passed his driving test in just such a car and Volkswagens have adorned his drive ever since. His first book inevitably covered the subject of the world s most popular car, but now both in his writing for the magazine  VW Motoring  and with articles for other publications, he embraces all members of Volkswagen s expanding family, including the Transporter. The author of several volumes, his training as a historian and enthusiasm for the subject matter has ensured both a knowledgeable and lively approach.
