A very colorful Volkswagen Jetta, seen in central Beijing by reader Jacco B., thank you for the picture! The jolly Jetta was wrapped in a surprising combination of matte orange, matte purple, matte yellow, and matte green, and is further sexed up by racy tires with sporty double-four spoke alloys, fake air boxes on the bonnet, red tinted headlights, black windows, and a huge green wing on the back. A true work of art this Jetta is!
The Volkswagen Jetta MK2 was made in China from 1991 until March this year when it was finally replaced by the all-new Jetta. The MK2 was an extremely popular car, loved for its fault-free character and pure basic transport functionality. It also was, and likely will be for a long time to come, very popular to make-more-pretty.

Minivans are too mini for some, who need extra space. An innovative minivan owner in Beijing found a way to add a bit more. He welded a cage-like structure and bolted it on top of his van. Big enough enough for 25 pigs, at least. Brilliant work. Simple but sturdy. Seen in the suburbs of the capital by reader Jacco B., thank you for the picture! This kind of structures are officially not allowed in China, but in reality nobody cares, not at least the police. Go transport!
