Putt, Putt, Putt, Putt....

You remember those t-shirts with the weeping Microbus from when Jerry Garcia passed away? Well, here's another reason for a teary-eyed box. From the March 2006 print edition of Car and Driver:
The last air-cooled Volkswagen rolled off the assembly line in Sao Paulo, Brazil, in a VW Microbus. Tightening emissions regulations forced the end of the engine whose roots can be traced to the 1930s. A water-cooled version of the engine will replace the long-standing four banger in 2006.
Truly, it's the end of an era.
