    Vw k70

    The K70 is a very solid VW. Built with the Swedish market in mind it rides very high to prevent contact with road grit and snow, giving it a somewhat ungainly appearance. There are 20 known right hand drive K70s registered in the UK. Different models are the standard K70 (, K
    70 S (4), K70 L (7), K70 LS (1, and it's mine&#128512.
    Google 'K70 slammed' to see what one looks like with some sympathetic suspension. Fairly 'bad ***'. Not for everyone but I love it!

    Swedish market? Anyway, personally I prefer the K70's development program sister car, far cooler and still looks modern. Mind you the 70 did have quite an enthusiastic engine for its capacity.

    Vile Invention

    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.

    I suppose this is an assumption, based on the experience of finding that all the spares come from Sweden. It makes sense too when you consider the high ride and the historical links between germany and sweden. It seems entirely logical that vw would make a car that suited 1970's Sweden. I don't really want a car to look modern but would be interested to see an image of the car you mention. All good with you?
