One thing I have always thought was odd about the VW bug was that anyone at anytime can have access to the engine. New car hoods need to be released from the inside. And while I have never had any problems, I never felt safe with my engine so vulnerable.
Luckily that is an easy fix. I finally bought a locking rear hood latch. It was super easy to put in. Simply unscrew the old latch and screw in the new one.
Now I sleep easy knowing my engine is safe.
