My 1990 Volkswagon Jetta Flair

This is the first nice car I bought in Germany.  I got it from an older American gentleman whose wife drove it.

I had this car when I retired from the Army and drove it from Meerholz to Mannheim everyday for over two years. Very fast little car.

One of the unique things you can see in these photos is the old USAREUR license plate.  This was the last US sized plate USAREUR issued.  After the World Trade Center attacks of 9/11 USAREUR changed to European style plates to help American military personnel in Europe blend in.

It ran great for quite a few years but then started having problems.   I ended up selling it pretty much for scrap to a Polish car dealer.  Parts of this car are probably still running around on different cars in Eastern Europe.
