VW Golf Country
When I first saw one of these at the VW Festival in Leed’s the first thing to spring to mind was “oh what has this numpty done putting a Golf body on a 4x4” little did I know I was the numpty for thinking that!!!!! After a little bit of research I found out that this was a factory produced vehicle.
Produced between 1990 and 1991 it sold over 7000 examples mainly in Europe where it was sold as a utility / small off roader. It was even sold in GTI guise. As you can see it has all the usual 4x4 refinements, wheel on back (check), bull bars on front (check) and big wheels (check). Personally I think its great and I saw one for sale over on Retro Car Trader about 6 months ago for a little shy of £5000.
