This is such an icon for many car enthusiasts. Aside from the big size, the reliability could be found in this vehicle. For family or for casual even, Kombi could take driving to the next level as it has the comfortable seats and powerful engine that could not overheat even for a few hours of driving. I have my 1976 2 liter and experience driving everyday but this one seemed to be the upgraded series but of course this is better.
The Brazilian VW Kombi has been fitted with a regular VW water cooled flex fuel (ethanol/gasoline) 1,4 liter engine with multipoint electronic fuel injection for several years now, since 2005.

The last mythological boxer flat four air-cooled engine has already ceased production.

Is there a camper version of the VW bus in Brazil, like the Westfalia ??
no, there is just the crappy version of the photo, and that's because the sliding doors only came in about the year 2002, before that we were offered the crummy medieval double hinged door:

I love the way these cars look. Not everything has be an aerodynamic blob if it can't go very fast to begin with and is already lightweight.

Especially the Land Rover Defender. It's so British. It's like something from a historical photo about the Falklands.
The Land Rover Defender is so British it should be called Land Rover Dr. Livingstone, I Presume :lol:
