"One thing remained a horror for me - flying over a crest with people standing on the side of the road behind it. You are flying. You can´t steer. You can´t brake. In your mind you can already see what it might look like if you drove into them. It crossed my mind time and again, in a situation like that, there could be 30 people dead." - Walter Röhrl

"I do know this, there still isn’t a driver in Britain like Roger Clark. I watched him at the Croft chicane on the RAC and there wasn’t anybody - Scandinavian or not - in the same class. He arrived full bore, braked just to the point where puffs of smoke came from the front wheels, then absolutely flat sideways right and left: superb." - Tony Pond on Roger Clark in 1976

Built, used, scrapped! Only a few of these vans, which once were advertised as „Eilfrachter” (faster than the VW T1) in Germany, have survived until today: Taunus Transit by Ford-Cologne (1953–1965) with 1.3/1.5 litre inline-four engine from the contemporary Taunus sedan. Its creator Alfred Haesner was previously an engineer and head of development at Volkswagen, where he had conceived the T1.
