About “Der Volkswagen”

This is my 2002 Volkswagen TDI I use it for commuting back and forth to work.

About “sampson”

a great car, although a little slow, but it is still really great to drive.
the handling is superb so it can be chucked in and out of corners with quite a bit of confidence.

sold recently to a family friend for £3000
