[Vwdiesel] What does the L stand for?

Yeah, it was the top trim level for '80 (we had one).  In subsequent years
the L was downgraded and the LS was created as the new top trim level. Also
there was the S...  anyone remember that, with the red accents?  A sheep in
wolf's clothing, it was called by the press.  The C was the bottom level,
except early on when I think there was a 'no level' model.

Fortunately we were spared the 'GL' moniker that every Japanese company and
some of the big 3 were using, but VW gave in to that temptation eventually.
