Feldjäger

A picture 'd'époque'... from the good old days of military service. Clearly visible are the elongated mirrors that were specific for the 181. Notice the difference between a left and a right mirror!feldjäger 181

paris-dakar

In 1979 and 1981 a VW 181 team tried to drive the Paris-Dakar Rally. Both cars never reached Dakar (but that's just a minor detail). The white car participated in 1979 and was equiped with a female pilot and co-pilot (Comte/Rijswijck). The red car, nicknamed Tazagou, drove the 1981 edition (Moroux/Terasse). Many thanks to Sebastien from Dakardantan for the pictures.decoration dakar81
