• The four-door early Pathfinders.

    The Pathfinder was an odd case, it was sold in the US as a two-door, but in Mexico the equivalent was a significantly longer four-door, whcih I'd have bought.

    What eventually came to the US as a four-door Pathfinder was considerably shorter than what I'd seen in Mexico, and I didn't much care for it.

    • Jesus, get out of my head….this happens all the time….saw the topic, immediately thought of the 4 door pathfinder, and then see you with the first comment—great minds think alike!

    • Interesting touch point in history, Hugh. I think at this point, after 50+ years, it may also have something to do with market dominance, here in the States. I'd agree that the "Chicken Tax" was the start of the whole process but it's not like VW has made any attempt to assemble the Amarok here for the past five years, for example.

      Of course, that's probably going to change real soon…I hope so.

  • Okay i stand corrected there is a TaiGun VW made in Brazil i use to live in South America /Montevideo Uruguay and there was plenty of stuff from Brazil that the American or world market never got.There was a Ford Falcon from Argentina that did not look like are domestic one either.

    • Or the Karmann-Ghia TC which from certain angles almost looks like a 911:

      I've always thought of the SP2 as an early 924.
