Not sure if I have already posted this one. A school bus designed specifically to operate on rural roads, but I still see those once in a while in the city. Notice the VW logo on the grille.

BTW to keep on-topic, one of the most beautiful Volkswagens released in the past decade, the Eos.

I meant my objections to a soft top were the off-topic.

Actually you could get a safari (type 181?) With a hard top at least here in ahmurica. I know of a couple that had a factory top. White or black.

Was it a factory fit or an aftermarket add-on?
