VW Saveiro Tears Up Brazilian Countryside On Cryptic Boot-Delivery Mission

Illustration for article titled VW Saveiro Tears Up Brazilian Countryside On Cryptic Boot-Delivery Mission

Do you need four-wheel drive (or even rear-wheel drive) to go crashing around on dirt roads? As I learned putting hundreds of miles on fire roads in the Trinity Alps behind the wheel of a CRX, hell no!

Anyway, there's this Brazilian dude with a box of narsty dirty old boots rattling around on the front seat of his Volkswagen Gol-based Saveiro pickup (no, that's not a typo; the Gol is a BDM-built cousin of the Polo), and he takes this endless drive to some hermit shepherd's shack. If we understood Portuguese, we'd probably understand the point of the boots handoff, but it's more fun to assume that the guy's statement was pure Dada-ist gibberish.

It looks like a Jettamino. This begs the question: If it's on the same platform, could you use Saveiro parts to make a RWD Jetta?
