Seen a Saveiro just now on my way to work. Didnít think we could get these here. Reminds me of the old Subaru Brat.

Most likely Mexican plates. They do have Saveiros in Mexico, and It does border Ca. Wink

Saw one just last week near Houston. Had Chihuahua Mexico tags. Nice looking vehicle. Didn't think to take pictures.

I have heard rumors to that effect! Laughing

Seriously, Argentina if chuck full of those sweet little trucks plus many other VWs that I had never heard of. The selection offered to North America by VW is pathetic compared to what they sell in the rest to the world! Likely a result of both the laws of this land and the North American "mine is bigger than yours" mentality.

Well now lets not jump to conclusions, there are several Stockton's in Canada, the country code for Canada is CA, the poster may of neglected to mention the Province, but like the USA the crowd North of the our border did not get that VW either, so it will have to be a visitor from the South.

Someone on this site in another thread reprimanded me for saying these were VWs. He said that Toyota built them for VW but I just talked to a fellow in Argentina - and I looked up up on the "net" and that is FALSE! They are built by VW of Brazil.

Once when I was working for an airline as a loadmaster in Phoenix, we took a delay on a flight because a passenger needed to be removed right before we pushed the aircraft out of the gate. The aircraft was going to Ontario, California. The passenger thought she was going to Ontario, Canada. She must have thought she was so smart when she bought a ticket all the way to Canada for $95.00. Rolling Eyes

That VW pickup is a nice looking truck. I've seen one or two driving around. Definitely popular south of the border. Not uncommon to see vehicles sold in Mexico and not in the US as people visit the States.

Even American car manufacturers have vehicles that they sell in other countries but not in the US.

Oh ya! South America is full of Ford Rangers and Chevy S10s all diesels that we saw. I'm thinking as I saw them "What the heck? Do we have leprosy or what that these nice little trucks were never offered to us?" 90% of North American pickup owners could do everything they now do with these!

Smart aleck SWA pilot gets on the PA after we take off on a flight from Burbank to San Jose (CA). Says, "The weather in Phoenix is 65, clear skies with a light wind out of the west.... long pause... and if you care about this report you are ON THE WRONG AIRPLANE!"

This was apt the time reports of truck pilots were more common... was he really joking?

I also learned in the thread that you can get Mexican license plates in Canada and that the Latin Ďcircaí is abbreviated California
