Why would the opening for the gas tank be in the VW trunk? (previous page) Or do you think it's just a staged picture with the female gas station attendants? Not that I remember where it was--at the time my Mom's friend had one, my sister and I were small enough that we loved riding in the small space behind the back seats.
That's where they were placed. The funnier thing in the photo is the guy in the back with the radiator can.
