I’m normally not a fan of four-wheel-drive. As a rule, I think it’s a way for automakers to frighten people into buying cars that are heavier and no more capable. Today, though, that all goes out the window. That’s because today’s find of the day is this 1990 Golf Country that’s being sold in Hollywood.

Endowed by its makers with a Steyr-Daimler-Puch 4WD system, and raised to get more than 8 inches of ground clearance, this is some full-on lovable German weirdness.

Only 7,735 were produced and few ever made it to the US, but this one has already been registered here. And it looks to be in good condition, too. The interior looks great, and according the seller it runs well, too.

The price, a healthy $12,500, is, unfortunately, right on the money for Golfs Country. The good news is that the price includes four extra OEM rims.
