Coolness. It’s a factor that only applies to certain places, people and automobiles and sometimes you either have it, or you don’t. Steve McQueen for instance, is cool. The pyramids of Egypt and the city of Venice are cool, and yes… even this rare little 1991 Volkswagen Golf Country is cool. It’s a total oddball of a car and one that looks to be more of a backyard build then an actual production piece. It was also never sold here in North America, which makes the fact that I saw one in person even more amazing. This 1991 VW Golf Country uses VW’s Syncro 4-wheel-drive system and was designed for light off-road duties. It possesses greater suspension travel than a stock VW Golf, a full-frontal push bar, skid plate and externally mounted rear spare tire with power coming from a 1.8-liter 4-cylinder that produces 114 ponies. Obviously you wouldn’t want to tackle the Baja 1000 with this thing, but you can bet your ass that this little bugger would be the highlight of every Volkswagen gathering you attended.
