My backyard, FULL of cars

Well, not really. Coming back from my girlfriends this morning, I decided to take the back route which goes by the car plant just outside of town. Their lot was FULL, so I pulled over to take a pic. Sorry it isn't very clear. My batteries died so I didn't get a chance to see the pic quality. This is the Mitsubishi plant where they make the Galant and Eclipse, the Dodge Stratus coupe, and some Mitsu Cute-ute...

My Dad's garage recently sold a '96 Volkswagen Passat brand new. In 2001.

Someone (I believe someone we knew) was at Volkswagen where they store all the cars - a big car park like this. He spotted this old model Passat TDI estate sitting there like the day it left the factory.

After some probing it was found that it had just got lost in the system, and sat there 5 years without, seemingly, anyone knowing about it.

We managed to buy it, sold it to a customer for around 65% the price of an equivalent new-model present year car, after some preparation (surprisingly little) and it still runs perfectly, despite a tough life at the hands of a veterinarian!.

See pic - a '51' on these new style UK plates clearly means a 2001 car. On a clearly not 2001 Passat.

Hmm, Normal Illinois is it? Same plant where my Talon was made. I sure am happy it was a joint venture of mitsu and chrysler otherwise it wouldn't have made it this far!
