I finally released the last part of the visit to Rocky Auto. You know we don’t like to talk much in our post because at the end of the day what about we car is cars. So here are last photos.

Ey! No! No! Don’t click back button in your browser. This is still r32taka but there is an special delivery today. Volkswagen delivery.

Even being a super japanese car addicted, I have been the owner of two VW Golf II in the past, so I still have some love for the old german cars. Specially the classics, telling you the truth I don’t car much about modern german cars.
