Default weird VW's

welcome to Brasil... land of funky rebadges largely due to the miserable marriage of Ford and VW in the late 80s. Do a google search for "Autolatina joint venture" if you desire more info

VW Apollo (aka Ford Escort 2 door - a Brasil only model.)





VW Pointer (Ford Escort - not to be confused with VW Gol based Pointer sold in Mexico)






VW Logus (2nd gen Apollo - another 2 door Ford Escort)






Ford Versailles/Royale (VW Santana)






so yes that's a Santana WAGON!!

Well... itīs an antique and rare VW 1600 air cooled... from 1968 I guess... (on perfect conditions! impressive!) in 1970 it has been replaced by the VW TL 1600 a little bit better. Here in Brazil it was nicknamed "Zé do caixão" this is the name of one Brazilian folk charater... the meaning for "Zé do Caixão" in english is like Coffin Joe hahahahaha
"Must be the fault of the ugliness of the car!"

But even with the mixed reviews... itīs a VW classic!

They're probably not weird for Lucas as he lives there, but for a VW fan from europe..... Apart from the beautiful country and perfect travelcompanions the VW's really added a special thing to my holiday.

Whatīs Up Tjaap
We have some VW from Europe here in Brazil too!
Some VW Corrado, some Rabbits MK1, MK2 and the MK3 (this one is easier to find)... but definetly the Volkswagen changed their car concept design to our public... here we had the first generation of cars that are "squared" and the second one that was more "rounded" (like my VW Gol "second generation")... Now I think that we are on way to get increasingly closer to German and Euro cars!
Now we have in here some Passat (cc), some Jetta, some EOS, Touareg, Polo...
Great Cars! But very expensive too!
Here in Brazil we have a lot of problems with the Government taxes (thatīs the cause for the high prices)
About the car design.. I think that the most part of people in here are used with those shapes... and are always "open" for news too!
Come on! I Think that they arenīt so weird... hahaha just a little bit different... hahaha

Ok...
I admit

"Iīm jealous of Germans and Europeans... Letīs divide this toys!"
