    Spar Kafer — It was a basic car with a 36 Hp engine and 6 volt electrics, AM radio and it would only go 72 mph on the Autobahn, but I loved it! Sold it only because I wanted a faster car which is when I got my new 1984 Rabbit GTI. It was considerably faster on the Autobahn.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: It had been re-built and was solid as a rock.

    Cons: Very Slow

    A Fun Little Car To Play In! By sunflowergal

    This car is great for a single person or couple but the back seat will not accommodate a car seat and growing toddler. The car is not made to carry any cargo. It would be perfect for a second car! Read More
