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:

Is there a camper version of the VW bus in Brazil, like the Westfalia ??


Land Rover Defender

In production since 1983 and based on the original series model produced since 1948
The production stoped in SA.


No one's mentioned the Volkswagen Citi Golf yet.
When?
The production stoped in SA.
The South African Golf is a newbie compared to the Brazilian VW Van and the Indian Hindustani Embassador.
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:

Another ancient world car.
Although the current version is completely changed from the original, the Chevrolet Suburban has been in production since 1935.

2010 Chevrolet Suburban:
Might wanna take a look at the numbers spray painted on the windshield. Dealers do that a lot to show what year the car is.

...Granted, it's identical to a 2013 model, so that doesn't really matter though. :D
This one is still in production:



Serial production of the UAZ-452 was started in 1965

It's still very popular among hunters, fishermen and offroad enthusiasts


You can park it this way:

I've got one of those! Defender 90. Built in 2004. :cheers:

(But a proper model - ie no silly alloy wheels like the one above! They're not meant to be "flashy" cars - that's what Range Rovers are for!)

They will likely cease production in 2015, because of regulations and whatnot. A shame as they are brilliant vehicles (they're more than just a "car").

The UAZ is the Russian equivalent of the Defender :)
Similarly, Ford has been producing F-series trucks since 1948.
