VW T1 Continental Motors in 1:18 Scale by Schuco
Under the motto „Race on Sunday - Sell on Monday“, numerous so-called „Club Races“ took place in the USA in the 1950s and enjoyed
great popularity among those actively involved as well as spectators. In these races, motor-sportenthused private drivers were able to
probe their driving skills and simultaneously push their mainly production-line sports cars to the limit, legally. The corresponding
vehicle dealers also put on suitable transport vehicles in support of their customers‘ vehicles at race tracks like Laguna Seca, Eagle
Mountain or Elkhart Lake. For example, Volkswagen and Porsche dealer „Continental Motors“ of Fort Lauderdale in Florida operated an
elegant and remarkable vehicle-trailer combination, consisting of an original VW T1 tractor unit and the associated trailer. Thus
vehicles such as the Porsche 550 Spyder or the Porsche 718 Spyder were able to be transported.
