never owned one because we lived on top of a steep hill and for those of us old enough to remember the Microbus had very little power going uphill

however, it was very popular in the Haight Ashbury portion of Oakland CA

goes to show you that car styles and models are being recycled to an entire new generation
I spent mucxh of the summer of 1970 in that part of Oakland as well as Berkeley ,San Francisco and Sausalito.
