Holiday dream come true!

It’s a known fact that I really like VW. I’m an incurable enthusiast, collector and need I say “fanatic?” car guy. It has been my dream to have the miniature replica of my favorite 1:1 VW car that I own. If it were a VW Beetle, Bus and Golf, it would be very easy to have the small scale of any of them. But my actual car isn’t popularly modeled in scale. I can safely say it, that only one manufacturer did such model. And finally after years of yearning to find one, this holiday season brings good cheers! My good friend has sent me one, and I’m thoroughly grateful!

From Schabak of Germany, 1:43 scale.
 The VW Jetta MK2, early model version .
 I just love this color….
 ….because my 1:1 sports the same factory paint, Dupont LA1Z !
 My 1:1 VW Jetta MK2, late model version.
 Canadian version, Jetta Carat in Light Sahara Mettalic paint.
 Matching interior is also VW code named, “Sahara”
 Both Jettas are personally treasured!
Happy Holidays everyone!
Hope your dreams do come true, as mine did!
Enjoy & Cheers!

you have a difficult car.
schabak models are very old now,
we can call them vintage.
is the 1/1 jetta yours?
it may be even more difficult to get a real car in such a good condition.
congrats for such a couple of VWs

Hi Danielh, This was a happy event when I finally held im my hand this little Jetta. My real Jetta has a junior already :-)

komenda said...

Hello Gaucho,
Yes, the 1:1 Jetta is mine :-) I regularly use it and is in very good condition after all of these years. A wonderful cruising companion.
I agree Schabaks are nice vintage miniatures, they are not readily available here in my place. So happy that a good friend sent me this :-)cool Vw!
Greetz & Thanks
