A VW pickup at the Nürburgring

Our heavyweight champion, Balázs, or better known as Assur on the premises is the news writer of the mother site, Oh yes, he’s an automotive engineer too. They say there isn’t a data that has ever escaped his mind, all we know is that he can drop into any conversation about any car that was made after the war, and he’ll be able to add a ton of details you won’t ever be able to find in books. He has been thinking of selling his longserving Volvo for years, so he always has some used car adverts open on his computer, just in case. Has a wife and two (almost grown-up) children.

No, it's not an illusion: this ratty old Transporter actually drifts in the Karussell, at speeds others just dream of. Most impressive!

The shabby T3 DoKa - that’s the slang term used in VW circles for this double cabin pickup version - has probably been modified to some extent, judging by the way it goes through the famous Karussell, the banked corner on the Nordschleife.

It drifts the outside lane in the curve at about the same speed that the VW Scirocco races along the inside lane, before drifting around a Renault Clio RS. The sight is spectacular, although it is obvious that the T3 is carrying something way more powerful in its back than the usual boxer engine or an in-line four diesel. What it is exactly would be hard to tell; tuners are known to fit the T3 with anything from a six-cylinder Porsche engine to Alfa’s V6 as there’s enough room behind the rear axle of the pickup.

A Volga – no doubt! But why is it yellow?

Knowing how awful Soviet-made vehicles were, the Volga comes up as a surprise. A massive one at that.
