The guy that organized the Vortex Rock Concert in Estacada, OR in 1970 drove a primered Beetle with the quarter panels filled in like that. It had buffaloes painted there because he was in the Buffalo Party. A Corvair flat six IIRC.

That would fit in the military livery thread.

I wonder how many ventos there are, apart from europe?
I think it is a jetta in the us. We had jettas in finland but they were same age as mk2 golfs, after that they are ventos for some reason
I think they are made between years 1994 and 1998. After that they changed to bora.

Anyhow, they have a huge trunk space for a sedan, and great economy at least with the diesel engines. I still see a lot of ventos used as daily drivers.

Plaid upholstery inserts. Very cool.

If it is, then the reflection maps and ray tracing are first rate.

Chopstix — That's a Hound Dog. It appears to have a bed extension and tailgate added.

Some generations of the Jetta/Bora/Vento were available in Argentina either as Bora or Vento because Jetta sounded quite like "yeta" (bad luck).

If there are seven cylinders, is it still a four-cycle engine?
