1983 VW Polo 2019 Spinner promotional hat

While digging through all my junk looking for Retrofitting Blade Runner, I found... a high rez scan of the paper hat made for the 1983 VW Polo promotion. It's got "Harrison Ford is Blade Runner" on the bill, "2019 Spinner" on the right side, "1983 Polo" on the left side, and "Tomorrow's car today!" across the back. It also has artwork: the VW, a Spinner, and the HF running man logo. I think this car was only sold in Germany-- kind of a VW Rabbit station wagen, and one I don't recall ever seeing on the road. If there's sufficient interest, I'll rebuild the image in Photoshop (my copy has part of the unprinted ear pieces clipped, since it apparently was color copied on standard 8.5 x 11 paper. If it's already out there and available, save me some hassle and tell me, ok gang? It's kind of wrinkled and screwed up, so will take several hours to rebuild.

I believe I saw one of these on eBay the other day. It may still be there, unless the auction ended.

That's it!

jfuste,

Yep, that's the one. Since they're out in the world and available on ebay, I won't bother Photoshopping my copy.

BTW, since BRIV mentioned it first, I won't compete on ebay unless you're not going to bid... It's a buy it now for 6 pounds and change. LMK sometime soon-- looks like there's only one and I'd like it.

I'm also a VW fan... ;)

Just to let you guys know, I have no intentions of bidding on the item (if it's still there, I haven't checked).

I wrote a large article on the VW Blade Runner campaign.. it is on bladezone somewhere Gary Carden should be able to find it.
