In an earlier life, I've even made the pilgrimage to Wolfsburg with its own shipping canal, robots, Lamborghini sound-light shows - indeed a memorable day. Wolfsburg is the same place the first split screen kombis were manufactured. However these two 1960's T1s were built in a purpose built Transporter factory in Hanover.
Sadly the end of this year will see the last iconic Kombi produced.
1964 Microbus - including handprints of all the family
Another "splittie", only a year or two younger
My mum's focus was elsewhere! not a microbus amongst her sketches.
