Did you ever wonder why VW doesn't sell pickups here? Or, even the old VW rear engine pickup that disappeared suddenly? Or, maybe you remember the old LUV pickups and sometimes the cab seemed to be slightly different color? Ditto Toy and Nissan PUs... This is called the Chicken Tax. 25%...on imported pickups. Dumb really dumb and we talk about NAFTA, etc.

There are a lot of foreign cars that can't pass US standards (crash, pollution, etc). Some cars were outlawed for having too much horsepower.

VW makes pickups?
They make one in S America that is a lot better than the old Rabbit.
