“It’s such an Antti car, that one he likes on Facebook”, said the girlfriend of Joe, the Colognese friend of mine whose photowork has occasionally made it onto these pages. It’s the Passat to which she’s referring, as I was linked the car earlier today and I went into total swoon mode, even posting it on the Brown Car Appreciation Society page. And she’s right, I’d daily drive the damn out of the three-door 1982 Passat finished in cardboard brown. And it’s even cardboard matte by now.
The Passat obviously needs some love, and there are no interior shots, but it displays such potential for perfection some VAG-head definitely needs to go pick it up from the southern coastal town in Skåne, Sweden, where it’s situated.
