  • Donut Black Friday SALE!

    VW is known for making some iconic cars like the Beetle, Passat, Jetta, Polo, and Scirocco. But what if we told you that Volkswagen took a ton of different colored parts, put them together, and created an actual mismatched paint OEM rainbow production model … the Harlekin Polo and Golf.

    Huge thanks to our good bud Jamie Orr for letting us borrow his Harlekin Polo!
