Rudi started as an intern, but thanks to his dedication, gentle demeanor, passion for cars, and the fact that he had a VW T3 Transporter, which came in handy when we had to carry stuff for our various events, he is now a full-time member of the team. When he is not studying engineering management, he is fiddling around with air-cooled VW's.

Pictures of a Seat Toledo 1M estate that has never made it into production.

These pictures were first uploaded to the Toledo Club homepage. Should you have doubts about which manufacturer’s warehouse they were taken in, just look for the badge on the Seat Inca. Now, the Toledo has never had an estate variant and only one conversion has ever been made of its first generation (1L), called Bieber Vario. This, however, is a second generation Toledo, a 1M.

The 1M could not repeat the success of the 1L, though. The spacious, relatively cheap car equipped with VW technology was edged out of business by the Skoda Octavia offering almost the same as its Spanish counterpart, only at a better price. And it had an estate variant, too. Who knows, maybe if this secret prototype had gone into production it could’ve saved Seat.

Many thanks to Gergő for the pictures!

It's not your average Gullwing

And after 57 years there was one lucky bloke to drive it too. Oh, they also made a short movie on that stint. Just listen to the noise it makes...
