This is the Trekka
Tiré du site Internet de Revolver: ""This is the Trekka by Skoda. Replacing the outmoded classes of utility and recreational vehicles, Trekka's no nonsense rugged build unites the best of both, making you truly productive. To the dairy co-op or the trout pools, Trekka matches freedom with solidarity. Nothing is wasted on decadent luxury, without compromise on efficiency and power. A workhorse but the Trekka gets around. Almost saloon car comfort for you and your fellow travellers on the open road. Designed by New Zea-landers for New Zealand's conditions. And 85% New Zealand made. Trekka - all rugged - all vehicle - for everyone !" In his contribution for the New Zealand Pavilion on the occasion of the 50th Venice Biennial, Michael Stevenson examines the history of the hopelessly unsuccessful Trekka, an offroad vehicle built on a Skoda chassis which was sold about 2.300 times, tragicomically reflecting New Zealand's economic strategies during the Cold War.
