 DO NOT BID WITHOUT CALLING ME FIRST. Runs and drives good, ive put about 100 miles on it in the past few days. Not perfect show quality but really nice, restored years ago and shows a little age but its in great condition. Im not sure if the interior is original or replaced but its in near perfect condition. Original floorpans with no rust but the passenger rear has been replaced due to battery rot (an original pan was cut from another bug and put in) New chrome original style wheels and caps, new tires and new spare tire, new bumpers and brackets, new headlight rings, new top and top cover, original white repaint (fully disassembled and done right), new front windshield seal, new convertible top seals, new window seals (except vent window seals), new body seals (except brake light seals) , all new brake lines, new battery and a few other things. It still has all the cardboard insulation and tool kit under the front hood. The engine was just replaced with a recently rebuilt 1,600 dual port that has a 87mm big bore piston and jug kit, performance camshaft, 009 electronic ignition distributor, new quiet high performance exhaust system and a new stage 1 clutch, pressure plate & throw out bearing. It also comes with the original engine that has a locked piston. It runs and drives but needs the carburetor and timing adjusted by a professional, I done the best I could without a timing light and it starts quick, runs good and idles good, it may all be fine but I suggest having it checked. Sometimes it dies at stop signs but starts back up soon as you hit the switch. It also has a slight oil leak on the driver side, valve cover or push rod tube. I buy and sale 3 or 4 classic cars a year and use some of them for my daily driver so I know every problem and fix what needs attention, I like to leave a little work for the buyer so I can ask a reasonable price. Ive been doing this for over 20 years, sold and shipped cars all over the world through Ebay. I also have it listed local with a lot of interest so this auction can end at any time. Call, text or email, I get poor signal at home so if I don't answer please leave a message615-753-2O9O DO NOT BID WITHOUT CALLING ME FIRST.

Europeans get first crack at new Golf Variant wagon

Mon, 04 Mar 2013 15:00:00 EST

Just last week, when we brought you news of a new Volkswagen Golf variant out and testing in Europe, we had no idea we were being so literal with out description. For it seems that VW has every intention of calling its new Golf wagon, making its Geneva debut, the "Golf Variant."
Odd/interesting sobriquets taken as read then, there's a lot to like about this new small wagon from VW. The Variant will shed some 232 pounds in this generation, and will come to market with two efficient TDI engines. Volkswagen isn't giving us displacement figures for either yet, but we're told the diesels will come with outputs of 110 and 150 horsepower. The 110-hp TDI BlueMotion Varient will be good for a whopping 71.3 miles per gallon on the European cycle, when mated to the six-speed manual transmission.
The German automaker has brought along an all-wheel-drive 4Motion version of the Gold Variant to bow in Geneva, as well, and a natural gas-burning TGI BlueMotion is said to be "in the pipeline."

Former Porsche CEO Wiedeking indicted over VW takeover bid

Thu, 20 Dec 2012 14:16:00 EST

Do you recall the failed efforts by Porsche to take over Volkswagen? According to a Bloomberg report, former Porsche CEO Wendelin Wiedeking (above) and ex-CFO Holger Haerter have finally been charged with market manipulation over the exercising of options as part of the German sportscar manufacturer's ill-fated attempt to take over the much larger VW. That failed bid eventually resulted in the reverse coming true - VW swallowing Porsche.
The charges leveled by Stuttgart prosecutors come after a three-year investigation centered around allegations that Porsche execs made a concerted effort to increase the company's share in VW to 75 percent in preparation for a hostile takeover. Porsche had previously told its investors on at least five occasions that it had no intention to buy VW.
Portions of the investigation have subsided, according to prosecutors, citing an inability to prove certain improprieties with a "necessary degree of certainty." The number of charges is down to 5 from a previous 14 counts regarding "information-based market manipulation."

VW redoes A-ha's 'Take On Me' music video

Wed, 18 Sep 2013 12:30:00 EST

Volkswagen has been responsible for its fair share of witty, clever commercials. "Tiny Vader" might be the most popular, but somehow, we think this newest spot will find a big audience. VW delivers not so much a cover, but a reimagining, of 1980s Norwegian pop band A-ha's famous music video for "Take On Me."
The original opens with an animated motorcycle race, which is revealed to be part of a comic book. VW's version replaces the motorcycle with a Passat, which strikes us as an oddly sober choice when there are cars like the GTI and Beetle in VW's portfolio. But never mind that - take a look down below for the entire 46-second spot. For reference, we've also included the original music video. And if you aren't a fan of the musical stylings of A-ha, just think, VW's choice of 1980s music could have been much worse.
