View Full Version : One rare beast.. I'm led to believe

So took delivery of my latest family member...

Karlos... It was planned to be fairly straight forward. Paid a small sum, knew he was missing his boot lid, figured I would get one from somewhere....

He has rust in the lower leading edge of the rear doors, A-pillar on d/s and of course some in the lower corners of the rear window... Not a huge issue, not compared to finding a boot lid... Someone help me save Karlos....

He's a 1984 Santana... Why is he in the Passat section? Well, I figured he was as close to a B2 Passat as you will get, just a saloon/sedan shape with a boot!

Made in the Nissan factory, and painted in Bluebird gold... ;)
These have been produced from 1985 up until January 2013 in China to satisfy China's taxi needs....
Anyone here friends with someone in China, hooked to a freight crowd? ;) ;)

Just for interest sake it wouldn't be the same as a early audi 80 or 100 bootlid would it. Looks very similar.:cool:

they not the same... These are very much wider than the 80 and Teeny bit wider than the 100
