We've never seen one of these in person, let alone driven one, but that wouldn't stop us from bidding on this 1990 Volkswagen Golf Country. We've thought about the logistics of lifting the 2013 GTI in our garage, and we like that VW had the same idea in the heady days after the wall fell.
When it comes to Golfs from the early 90's, we normally don't get too excited about anything without a 16v engine, but this isn't a GTI and the motor isn't the selling point here. There were only about 3,000 of these Syncro mini-offroaders built and they were never sold in the US so it's rare to see one since they've only been 25 year eligible for a few years.
On top of the limited production numbers for this model, there are probably only a handful of 1990 Volkswagens left on earth with less than 20,000 miles so rare doesn't do this hatchback justice.
The color, "Country" graphics, and interior are a great snapshot of the 90's and the interior itself is a time capsule. The factory bullbars, rear bumper, and swingarm-mounted tire will draw doubletakes everywhere you go. You may want to carry some documentation with you as you might have trouble convincing people that you didn't create this proto Subaru Crosstrek in your garage after a few too many Warsteiner.
This eBay auction appears to be no reserve but it seems like there is some history with this particular vehicle. Documentation shows that it was imported by a dealer over a year ago, and we recall seeing it in a few publications. Most recently, it sold for over $14,000 on eBay in January but we're not sure what became of that sale.
