I am a sucker for imported cars.  Somewhere in the rat trap that is my mind this equation exists, Euro stuff>Stuff we can get here.  It can be anything, if it comes from Europe is has to be better, right?  I mean why else would we be paying $1,000 for this?  OK, that I actually get.

Anyhow, here we have a 1982 Volkswagen Polo.  The owner states it is the only one in the states, which is, um, false.

Exhibit #1.

Exhibit #2.

I’ll forgive the seller’s enthusiasm, this is a pretty neat car.

1982 Volkswagen RHD Polo:

From the seller –

“let me start off by saying the car runs and drives 110% very well kept never sleeps out side and turns heads everywhere…

i have all documentation clean New Jersey title in hand

i also have all dealer service records from points of origin

i am asking for best offer so don’t be shy make a offer that is respectful and you just mite be the proud owner of the only polo in the US from what i no

the car has 81000 miles on it every thing is original the only mods that i have done was..

1. side exit exhaust

2. 15″ bbs rs

3. music

it has a 1.3 liter motor and 4 speed Manual trans.”

As great looking as this car as this is, and it is beautiful.  It is packing a 1.3L mated to a 4 speed transmission.  That is going to be sluggish, like Zastava slow.  I can think of a lot of other cars I would rather drive for $10k.

But, it’s imported so by all means I completely understand the cool factor here.  Now, about that Jamon…

    I totally get it, Aaron. A basic level Polo is tons more desirable than a far nicer Malibu, Camry or whatever else.

    The “mods” on this one (side exhaust, much too oversize rims, etc.) detract from that desirability – at least for me. The stock versions would be cooler.

    Maybe I’m just unreasonably cheap, but you can buy an awful lot of equally (or more) desirable 1982-vintage Euro-car for $10K. Seems like this seller is pricing it based on his perceived value, not the market.
