“Big, fast, expensive cars have always been a passion with royalty. But a family man like King Njiiri of Kenya probably doesn’t have much passion to spare.
Or very much money. (Things have been kind of slow lately in the king business.) Which makes him the kind of king that a Volkswagen is really fit for.”

This is a 55 yr. old original vintage ad removed from a 1966 publication and is not a reproduction of any kind.
