I guess y'all won't see one of these in America...


'76-'99 Kombi pick-up

That's a Brazilian Willys Station-Wagon with its distinctive front clip, not sure how it compares aerodinamically-wise to its American counterpart.



Toyota Bandeirante, a local derivative of the J40-series Land Cruiser


This one, specifically, is factory-fitted with a Mercedes-Benz Diesel, IIRC a OM314.

I like it too, and based on those diagrams earlier, it may be just long enough to sport a fair Cd. However, a Google search turned up no numbers (yet).

That's the OG (Original German) Type II, or split window. All single and double cabs used that rear quarter.

Edit: I'm wrong. I saw a single-cab yesterday with the vents that cRiPpLe_rOoStEr's example showed.

Here's another tractor:


Just A Car Guy : best thing you'll see all day, the '59 Massey Ferguson of Ardbeg Whiskey racing a classic Lotus Gran Prix race car

Each straight pipe on the blown big block had a tractor flapper valve. At idle it must sound like castanets. There's a video of it on Youtube named Ardbeg Hot Rod Tractor, but Youtube wants people to sign in to view it so I never will know; but you can search by name. Since I can't preview it, I won't post it here.
