Miscellanious cool type 4 stuff

Post by Lahti411 » Sat Dec 18, 2010 3:32 pm

Although this is very technically oriented forum, i think it's sometimes necessary to take a break and have some fun.
Post your cool type 4 stuff here please!

Here's something i just found. Rather lovely, i'd say:

A friend of mine sent me that in an e-mail. He won't tell me where he got it...so I'm suspecting it came from some retro porn site. :lol: Ray

Its really hard to come up with something after Lahti411's camper movie...this is only a small flim from the VW factory showing some assembly (and a lady popping out oft the trunk which is the cool part of it :) )

In the cool test we can see that the car is an EFI-one but the emblem does not show an "E" or "LE", was that the way they used to label the 412's?

E or LE badges were never used in the U.S. I believe all the car sold there were LE-spec anyways. I've never seen a pic of a type 4 in the U.S. with the standard E spec (rubber carpets, no exterior chrome etc.)
