Skoda Octavia 1960August 21, 2018
I had to visit my local Skoda dealer to pick up a single DIN cage for my new infotainment system I’m installing in my Yeti – and just look what sits in the corner of the showroom, minding its own business.
I just had to wander over and whip out my mobile!
Yes. A 1960 Skoda Octavia.
I didn’t even know the Octavia was this ancient 😮
Skoda produced this car from 1959 to 1971. Then it stopped producing them and there were no more Octavias.
Skoda resurrected the name and knocked a few out. The newer design, obviously. Not much interest from buyers.
Then, as we know, in 2000, Skoda became part of VAG and the game changed
The Skoda Octavia of today is a quality, award winning vehicle. And the VRS Octavia is an absolute monster of a car!
But isn’t this old lady just grand?
If I spot an interesting machine somewhere I get out my mobile phone and take a few photos.
Then I feature it here in ‘Spotted’
And I am always keen to hear about your interesting car, motorbike or scooter.
Would you care to share and help me grow my site?
