wow, this first generation passat actually looks cool - you cannot really tell the same on subsequent models.Agreed, i really love this generation.
Here in Brazil just this plataform had be used, his fabrication got until 1988 and just were made some facelifts. But all of them were the B1 plataform.
1st facelift 1979
2nd facelift 1983, I really like this DeLorean like front.
3th facelift 1985
