1980 Volkswagen Brasilia

s-l1600 (4)
Paul has featured a couple of Brasilias here before, but its small original market means we almost never see them in the US. This one has made its way to Florida and looks to be in great shape after just 66k miles. The ones Paul featured were 2-door shooting brakes, while this one is the slightly less elegant 4-door. Interior and exterior look extremely nice, even in the frunk. It’s pretty much a Beetle but with a lot more practicality and a bit less cuteness. Who needs cute when you can be funky and rare?

The Gulf Blue 1984 Porsche DP935 we featured back in October is still up for sale and remains up for a reserve auction. These cars typically have more limited appeal, but for those who would be interested in adding one of these machines to their collection this one looks in quite good shape. And they are undeniably unique!

1993 Porsche 928 GTS

It feels like it has been forever since I featured a 928 of any year, let alone a GTS, the last of these great Porsche grand tourers. As I come back to one now I am immediately struck by how good these cars still look. They are truly a timeless design that was well ahead of the game when they debuted. The interior pretty clearly dates these cars to the ’90s, but from the outside only the pop-up headlights really hint at the 928’s age. That design, along with quite a few other superb qualities, haven’t gone unnoticed as the GTS has become pretty highly sought after among Porsche enthusiasts, especially in the rare case of finding one with a manual transmission. This one happens to be an automatic, but there’s still plenty to love here and that automatic should come at a substantial discount over a comparable manual-equipped GTS. Here we have a Polar Silver Metallic 1993 Porsche 928 GTS, located in New Jersey, with Black interior and 34,595 miles on it on offer with no reserve.

Low-Mileage Volkswagen Vanagon Westfalias

s-l1600
The strong market for Westfalias should surprise no one by now. What is surprising, however, is finding two ridiculously low-mileage Westies for sale at the same time, in nearly the exact same spec. They’re both late-model, white on grey Vanagons that are looking for high-$30ks. That’s starting to get into decent Syncro Westy territory – are they worth it?

1991 Volkswagen Golf Driver

It’s interesting to me that Volkswagen has managed to make the Golf a premium product, because for so long it was actually low man on the totem pole at VW. I owned a Westmoreland made Golf built in 1986, and while it was a fun car to drive, luxurious it was not. Compared to new models with Audi-inspired interiors, the Mk.2 cars are positively Spartan in design. However, compare them to some similar Japanese interiors from the day and you begin to see why the Golf was widely regarded as the premium hatch in the segment. It also offered plenty of performance from the 16V models, though in Europe those cars were more expensive to insure. Popularity and a propensity for getting into accidents meant that they were targets for theft, the and consequently high insurance premiums. As a result and due to the higher cost of the GTi models, Volkswagen introduced several GTi-look packages like the Golf GT and this one, the later Golf Driver:
