a European country. Can someone guess were this postcard was posted?
again one of these rare ads you don't see on the internet... untill today!
Reliability doesn't choose side.
...where the sun is. A postcard from St. Maarten, the Nederlandse Antillen.
The BundesGrenzschutz (German border patrol) used a few vw 181... to scare off the ones on the other side, I suppose. You might not notice it at first but those BGS-181 had a rather surprising feature: they had extra windows in the soft top! I have never seen these on other 181.
This is it: a rare picture of the first 181 that was shown to the public. At the Internationale Automobile Ausstellung of Frankfurt. (notice the short rib in the front quarter)
181 kits were sent around the world. Almost 6.000 of those kits were assembled in Indonesia where they were called Camat and mostly used by the local authorities. Now these cars are retired, and have become public fun objects! Damn sweet right hand driven 181s!
