The Saadabad Palace (Persian: کاخ سعدآباد‎) is a palace built by the Pahlavi dynasty of Iran in the Shemiran area of Tehran and currently official residence of the President of Iran.

The complex was first inhabited by Qajar monarchs and royal family in the 19th century. After an expansion of the compounds, Reza Shah lived there in the 1920s. And his son, Mohammad Reza Pahlavi moved there in the 1970s.

After the Iranian Revolution, the complex became a museum. However, the current presidential palace is located adjacent to the Sa'dabad compound.

Wow what an amazing building, thank you for sharing that. Extraordinary. I bet it's so hard to get a good photo in the mirror room because of all those reflections bouncing light around. And look at those incredible murals! Love it. Sad to see the garden by the pool looking so forgotten now.

Whenever I visit the vwdasher.com, the flag counter made me sad. Wherever you can see this word: “Islamic Republic of Iran”. I am a Muslim but my country is “Iran” forever. This name is a fake name that Mullah’s innovated. Mullah’s are humans with the devil characteristics. They do every crime with misuse of “Islam”. Their purpose is and was destruction of religion, ethics, honor, culture, and all good human traits. Today they have reached for their purpose.
“H.I.M Mohammad Reza Pahlavi” and his father “Reza shah the great” was noble and honorable man that efforts for building their country and promote people’s life. This two gentleman progress Iran 300 years with 57 years of their reign. Mullah’s back iran 1000 years with 36 years.
Iranians are forgetful people that I think they don’t have merit for progress and development. They do craziest and most wrong revolution at 1979 and the shah was died from grief and distress only 1 year later!
Shame to Iranians and salute to the noblest man of Iran: Mohammad Reza Pahlavi.
God bless him.

look at to his eyes.... Mehrabad Airport, Tehran - 16 January1979:

Sadly the flags and descriptions come from the software, I can't change those. I remember Iran of the seventies was far more progressive than it is now, and it saddens me that Iranian people have to live like this. I hope to see this change again, for the better of all, in my lifetime.

I returned from Sa’ad Abad at night. When The family gathered to see photos, My mom said:”it is similar to your Passat”, after she saw the MGB! I think that My mom’s idea is true. MGB looks like to VW Typ3 (Passat/Dasher Grandfather).

What a great showing! Yay a 59 Bug, just like mine (that is still in 1000 pieces in my garage :( ).

I had no idea Iran also modified that Hillman. Now there's a model that's had many names and disguises. Did that happen a lot there?

That extra rollbar really does not suit that MG.

Wow I think Iranian reuse of cars is on a par with India's innovative use and changes of cars. Amazing!


Yes one day my Beetle will be back on his feet, he's on the to do list. I must dig his body out of the garage so that we can do some rust repairs on him.....one of these days....

I had an uncle (who has now passed) who adored DS's so much he had seven of them. Every time I see one I smile and think of him ;) They are a fantastic design, so futuristic. These two in Iran are in amazing condition!

I have never seen an AMC Pacer here, I wonder if anyone ever imported one to Australia....we did, however, get the P1800 and other similar vintage Volvos and they show up at vintage car shows here.

My B1 won't be lonely; he's surrounded by three Mk1 Golfs and an Amarok :)
