This same investigation turned up another factory that had been dismantled lock, stock and barrel in Germany and shipped to Brazil where it was used to produced brand new VW beetles. These wannabe motors were not a scratch on the originals as the materials used left much to be desired, the sheet steel used for the body work was thinner than a coke tin for example and if you sat on the wing you would seriously dent it, but they did look the part. The Argentines called these motors “trucha” (trout) meaning, clones, copies, fakes, imitations etc.


Isn’t there a country just now that’s still churning out brand new Peugeot 405’s? Must be a good income for Peugeot in some way?

Haha, I know that reference Larry, and I’ve answered that long awaited question for you. Just a shame it was a dead 3.2S :lol:
