This page I've found on the search in the www for more VW K 70 - my favourite car since I was a small boy. Born in 1970, I decided as a primary-school-boy "When I'm grown up, I'll be a K 70-driver". So I did. 1990 I've boght my first one, followed by 20 more (mostly for spare-parts). I'm one of the most hardcore-K 70-freaks in the world. The car is nowadays so rare, that we freaks know us each other - worldwide. Actually I only own one K 70, a 1973-K 70 L with 90 hp, bought in 1998 in San Remo/Italy from an old man. But I own the world's biggest collection of K 70-literature, brochures, magazines on more from around the world. Naturally I'm engaged in the K 70-Club, responsible for the international contacts and -together with two other guys- for the NOS-spare-parts. Our club is the only chance to get them. I'm open for every help for K 70-freaks, just let me know: Ingo.Menker@freenet.de

Annother hobby of mine is collecting license-plates, but only from West-Germany and only from counties or towns, which had lost their own plates in the 70ies.

Since May 2007 I'm married. My wife likes cars, too, but who is not a real K 70-enthusiast. She loves more Opel. And she don't understand, why a man can spend his whole time just for cars. I can agree with her, so I'm always trying to be not too nerdic - often quite hard. :)

We have one common hobby - travelling. Finally I've spent more money for this than for my car. It's o.k. for me. Nice cars you can have, when you are old, but travelling around the world sometimes will be too hard. So we do it now. Soon we must slow down that hobby, because we are planning to buy a house. Let's see.

- 1973 VW K 70 turquoisemetallic, owner since 1998
