I thought click was for central locking but it hasn't got that. So know I think it's for cigar lighter cuz it has one of those. It is so basic it's unreal. No sunroof no roof bars no c locking no split back seat no electric windows no power steering. Nothing. Awesome

Interesting. Mine is a prefacelift CL but it has split rear seats and a sunroof.
No central locking, electric windows, power steering, roof bars etc though.

If you think a CL is basic try one of the German "C" spec Passats...

true story! Mine is a "C" spec 1983 LHD German Variant. No side trims, no fog lamps front or rear (dummy blank lamps in front), no sun roof, no roof bars, no electric anything, 1.3 litre carb'd Polo engine, 4-speed gearbox, no split rear seat.

However, mine got some optional extras specified at the time of ordering though: Metallic Sienna Red paint and a dealer-fit tow-bar. Imagine, a 1.3 Passat with a tow-bar. It wouldn't pull the skin of a rice pudding!!

Wow... - a Stretch Santana. Awesome, but obviously some horsing around with a write-off, it has no number plates. Could have been built for some People's Army officer's wedding or the like.

I like the daily driver, although the body is obviously beyond repair.

I do not like the look of the GLS5. Too low, wheels too massive, But of course that's just a personal opinion.

The car from Poland originally was a Passat "Trophy" German special model, 4cyl, heavily customized with almost the full setup of a Quantum 5cyl donor car. Great deal of work and interesting outcome. Wheels are new to me but fit the look. I still think the rubber strips on doors and wings are missing, the B2 (Santana and facelift) look much more "grounded" with them since they put more emphasis on the lower body section.

Like the look of this car. BBS RA's I think. Clean bodywork. This has the side bump strips in place. Unsure of whether to keep these fitted after my fresh paint.

Doesn't need an engine anymore! :D I found him a donor and he drove hundreds o miles to collect it. He has already swapped the parts and rebuilt the engine. Just need to pop it in the car, MOT it and it's good to go! Can't wait to see it rolling smoothly.

A previous owner had run it with no oil. Cylinder 1 was knocking quite badly. It was still knocking even after the bearings were replaced :| the crank was beyond repair :(
