Hi Phil - exactly, and Ben Pon was the first to sell VWs outside of
Germany. The vehicle was "crudely" designed to solve a problem. Pon
saw potential to solve other delivery opportunities and presented a
sketch to Heinrich Nordhoff - the new manager of the Wolfsburg factory
who had just taken over from Ivan Hirst, the British Superintendent of
the factory.
