Few cars are slower than a vintage Rabbit Diesel, trust me, I sold the one I owned about a decade ago and seller still hasn’t gotten home. Anyway, the Diesel passenger version of the Rabbit was noticeably slower with a passenger or four, but I can’t imagine how slow this Caddy would be with a […]
If you causally mention you have a Volkswagen Caddy, a normal person would assume you had some sort of golf sponsorship…but a not-so-normal person will ohh and ahh for they know how special VW’s front-drive water-cooled leisure activity vehicle (LAV…not kidding…that’s an actual marketing term). Today’s example needs some work before you can cruise around […]
The world is filled with yawn inducing boring stuff. Just look at your nearest Toyondaordmotorstallanis dealer. The stuff you see in the showrooms is an insult to the 7 year old version of yourself who dared to dream about driving someday. It is boring, safe, comfortable, and gives you this false sense of security about arriving at your destination without stopping to diagnose a strange noise or soldering a coil pack harness on Christmas eve (true story from this past Xmas). These safe and sensible cars are fine for the zombified masses who wear name brands like RFID ear tags and read the fine print before signing mortgage docs — but readers of this rag know better. We know the feeling of success and relief when reaching your destination. And we understand that swapping a modern 1.8T Audi/VW engine into a vintage Caddy is a thing of beauty. Find this 1980 Volkswagen Rabbit Pickup Sportruck offered for $7000 in Machester, VT via craigslist. Tip from Cory.

Lets just say that it’s 1988, the Allanté and its annoying accent mark just came out some months back, and you just bought a Coupe DeVille about three weeks ago, like a sucker. Furthermore, you’re about $20k short and cowl shake is kinda your jam. You could’ve taken your vindictive nature and 600lb. penny jar straight […]
There is a term that gets tossed around in the sport compact community — all motor. It means that the builder has not used any power adders (supercharger, turbocharger, nitrous). Kids with baggy pants (wait…someone said that punk kids wear tight pants now, what the hell is going on?) ask yahoo answers how can I […]
The Volkswagen Caddy is a VW Golf/Rabbit based pickup truck, typically powered by a diesel engine and generally known for being frugal with fuel and slower than a kid’s powerwheel ride-on toy. Seriously, purgatory levels of slow mixed with diesel fumes…but..and here is the BIG but…I can’t help but like them. It is probably some […]
