The returning champ. The Rabbit that was almost eaten by a ram.

VW Rabbit Truck-let


The new comer. Fresh from the law suits of the 80's. FWD, AWD, T-tops, 2 seats or 4 seats. The most fun you could have by law with ski polls

Your Momma used to call you by it's name.

The Subaru Brat

Just to be annoying, I'll go with the VW. Diesel please.

The Brats were cool, but never did really appeal to me.

Brat becuase of the optional seats in the bed.

Well depending on who's running the thread.. there's a possibility that VOTES could do it. But like i said, depends who's counting.

The VW is prettier, diesels are fun... I've owned a Rabbit truck...

but I have to hand this one to the Brat. AWD. Rear seats? Heck yes!

4x2 vs 4x4 isn't apples to apples. I would go with the Vdub simply because you can't hardly find the BRAT.

Brat because Subaru. Sometimes, they get bored and just lob somethin' goofy over the fence to see what happens. I generally like that in a car company.
