1981 VW Rabbit Pickup Truck, 1.6 Diesel N/A engine. Miles are 304k and actual. Was going to be a project but as projects go I have others that need more attention.  I have driven the truck as a city commuter for the past few months. She starts cold, runs well.  Transmission works well but as with most MK1 needs the shifter bushings replaced and shifter adjusted. Driveable as is but tricky to shift. I replaced the lower radiator hose, diaphragm in vacuum pump since I've owned it. Body is rusty as the photos indicate. The driver's side A arm mount is rusty and has been reinforced with a metal bracket as indicated in photos. Rust on rockers, and drivers floor board. I have driven the vehicle up to 60 mph and it does pull straight.  The steering column bearing will need repair due to the infamous "clunk". Once again still driveable but needs attention. Heater core is seeping but she does put out heat. Wipers, headlights, and custom tail lights are all functional.  This truck is for sale locally and I reserve the right to end the auction at any time. $500 deposit due upon auction completion the remainder to be paid cash in person. Local pickup only I do not ship.  Bidders with less than 5 feedback will have their bids cancelled***** Feel free to email any questions.

Toyota reclaims global sales crown, GM and VW not far behind

Mon, 28 Jan 2013 10:15:00 EST

TheDetroitBureau.com reports Toyota has retaken the global sales crown. The Japanese automaker turned out 9.75 million vehicles last year, putting it just ahead of General Motors, with 9.29 million vehicles. Volkswagen, meanwhile, filled out the podium by building 9.1 million units in 2012.
Still, Toyota numbers fell just below projections the automaker made earlier in the year, due largely to a fierce territorial dispute between Japan and China that has seen mainland buyers shun Japanese goods. But the news marks a substantial comeback for Toyota. The company fell to third place in the global production race in 2011 after tragic earthquake and tsunami caused several plant closures.
In Japan, Toyota enjoyed a sales increase of 35 percent over the previous year, while the company's worldwide sales jumped by 23 percent thanks in part to new additions to the Prius line. The automaker is forecasting yet another increase for 2013, with the company projecting to reach 9.91 million units this year. Neither Volkswagen nor GM have released their own projections just yet.

New VW Beetle Convertible ad needs no disguise

Mon, 18 Feb 2013 13:01:00 EST

Convertibles make you do funny things. Ask someone if they'd drive a hardtop in near freezing temperatures with all the windows down and they might not even answer, thinking the question so ridiculous. Give that same person a convertible they love and you might just have to ask them to please put the top up even when snow is on the ground.
That guy has to take precautions to enjoy his proclivities, and as this new ad for the Volkswagen Beetle Convertible shows, not everyone understands. Have a watch below, and note that there's just one woman in the minute-long spot, and she's nowhere near the car. Seriously, why didn't VW run this commercial during the Super Bowl?
