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