I miss handarbeit
« on: Wed, 11 January 2017, 02:03:27 »
I miss seeing the set and I wish it existed in group buy status right now.
I've got people to disappoint, I got mistakes to make.
How can you believe that I'm not a waste of space?

Handarbeit is actually also slang for "tossing off" in German ... so this thread title made me giggle.

It also means "hand-crafted". So the term "made with love" has kind of a... different meaning here :D

Handarbeit reminds me of the VW Golf Harlequin edition:

I bet the original production went like this..

German 1:   Hey German 2, I bet I can blindfold myself, select some random ms paint colors , call it a special edition, and those idiots would buy it..

German 2:  You're on, the loser has to buy Schnitzel dinners for the whole office...

German 2: /loses a week's pay , buying dinners.

If I got the story right, it was a 1-2 unit showcase model for a trade fair

Never for retail sale at any time...

Did that ever make it into reality?

The harlequin golf is amazing. People have copied it on Mk2s and I love it.

That set though. Grim. It's like a WASD custom keyset made by an imbecile.

I used to love VW's but the dealers here in the states take the piss.

Why do they take the piss? Prices or what?

They act like they are selling Maybachs.  Even the average Audi dealer here is a lot more humble!
