1981 VW Polo
RHD 'Lorry' - Right Hand Drive!
This 1981 Polo is the first year of the MKII design. This one is a 'Lorry' or 'Steilheck' which refers to the nearly vertical hatchback. A VW Enthusiast in Pennsylvania had brought this Polo to the states, but sold it to raise money to help a loved one. This Polo came from the UK as such is RHD. The car is completely stock and original, down to the 1.0L gas engine. It is a rare LB51 "Pargasblau," a shade of blue which was never used on any US models. I bought the car in October, 2009 and plan on keeping it completely original. Very fun to drive, and surprisingly quick for 1 Liter engine. Just a cool old-school euro-spec VW.
