Same style as Cameron's car in Ferris Bueller's Day Off. It had starting problems.
I thought Cameron drove a gen I VW Jetta.

It was an Alfa 2000, here's a shot:
Does resemble the Jetta

Hello Fintail - hope you are enjoying your trip.
The camouflaged jeep is a VW 183 Iltis - they did sell them on the civilian market, but most were sold to NATO armed forces - there were even a couple of thousand built under licence by Bombardier in Canada, for the Canadian Armed Forces. If this one is civilian registered it probably belonged previously to the Austrian or German military I suppose.

Yep, having a great time, another long fun day ahead. Sadly, it is almost over, but have knocked off a few car-related bucket list items, so it has been productive.
I also saw a couple boxy military looking 4x4 kind of things in Austria, I am assuming older Steyr or Pinzgauer products. Seems to be more rural dwellers there who actually need off road capability. Oh yeah, saw a G-wagen with a snorkel too.

Is that a Trabant? Didn't know they made 4 door models of those.
It's jacked up, too.
