1976 VW Brasilia
The Brasilia was a car produced for the Brazilian and Mexican markets from 1972 to 1982.  This rare (for the US) car was featured in VW Trends magazine in December, 2001.  Randy Carlson ( found the car on eBay listed by another collector who bought it from the original owner's Estate. He was a professor at the University of Alabama.  The professor brought the car here in 1978 where he drove it to the University on a regular basis.  There is a picture below with the complete story.  The car made its way through a couple more collectors until finally reaching a collector/dealer in upstate New York where I purchased it in October, 2008.  This car is 1 of only 2 known to exist in the USA, and shares it's chassis with the Karmann Ghia.  I remember seeing it on Randy's page back in 2001 thinking it was a unique find.  The car is still pictured there from when it sold in 2001, check it out.  I never thought I would end up with it someday, but by coincidence, here it is.  Very unique!
