Hi there I have this great example of a well kept Rabbit Caddy im offering for sale. I will start off by saying I love this little truck to death and am hesitant to even put it up for sale, but I have two trucks and no need for both so one of them has to go. But I will gladly keep this truck if I dont get the right offer. Ive had this for several years, always been a good runner, never left me stranded. Clean and clear title in my name, 5 speed shifts nice, starts up even in 20 degrees without being plugged in. Its not fast, it tops out at around 55 mph, I suspect the injection pump needs timed. The thing that sets this truck apart is its lack of rust, none on the shock towers, rockers, quarter panel corners, or anywhere you typically see rust. It has one small spot (pictured in picasa) on the underbelly thats the size of a couple pencils. Its been very well preserved through the years and always stored indoors, never driven in snow (or winter really, for that matter). Interior was completely reupholstered before i bought the truck, as well as a complete engine and transmission rebuild by Westside Diesel in Fort Worth, Texas (truck was a Texas truck its whole life), at the same time as the engine rebuild, Westside Diesel rebuilt the brake, suspension, and steering systems, and rewired the truck (see pics of this $2,829 invoice) The stack of paperwork from various Texas diesel shops is huge, totaling well over $5K. It drives really nice, has fantastic little BMW 320i rims on it with newer tires. great little truck, Please ask any and all questions, and see the 113 pictures in my Picasa album!! and be sure to read any captions I wrote with each picture- https://picasaweb.google.com/108592734019829103745/1981VolkswagenRabbitCaddy# 

thanks for looking & good luck

VW to relax ambitious US sales targets?

Fri, 16 May 2014 09:29:00 EST

The Volkswagen brand sold 407,704 cars last year, a 6.95-percent decline compared to 2012, and it's down a further 8.36 percent through the end of April 2014 compared to this time last year. In order to to put the sales football between its Strategy 2018 goal posts, the brand would need to add 100,000 more sales every year to achieve the lofty 800,000-unit target. Coming to grips with how unreasonable that is, VW US CEO Michael Horn has said, "For now, we have to have realistic targets."
The reasons for the brand's slow-down are imprecise, but lots of folks are throwing lots of reasons around. Last November, VW Group Chairman Ferdinand Piech told Bloomberg, "We understand Europe, we understand China and we understand Brazil, [but] we only understand the US to a certain degree so far." Analysts say the brand hasn't had midsize and compact SUV offerings, especially an overdue retail version of the CrossBlue, and the ones it does have are priced too high for their segments. It "didn't introduce enough new engines, or alternative technologies or model variants" for the Passat and Jetta. It devoted so many resources to China that the US market suffered. It was being outspent two-to-one on advertising by competitors. Its J.D. Power dependability ratings aren't high enough to overcome its past. It "has never really taken the US customer seriously." And so on.
There's still no official admission of defeat concerning the target, but reading between the lines there are some VW execs that appear to accept it won't happen short of some deus ex machina. Still,

Volkswagen Golf Variant will make a lovely Jetta SportWagen

Tue, 05 Mar 2013 17:59:00 EST

In addition to several other versions of the Golf, Volkswagen is debuting the new Golf Variant (read: wagon) here at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show. And if this bigger version of the Golf looks like it might fit right at home in the States, it's because we could possibly see some version of this car as the next-generation Jetta SportWagen here on our shores.
Volkswagen is debuting the Golf Variant with two efficient diesel engines, rated at 110 and 150 horsepower, the smaller of which is good for an impressive 71.3 miles per gallon on the European cycle (when mated to a six-speed manual transmission). The Golf Variant also gets a version of Volkswagen's 4Motion all-wheel-drive system, making it incredibly all-weather capable.
It's a handsome estate, and it wears the new Golf's design language well. We can't say for sure if this car will actually make its way Stateside, but given the fact that the current Jetta SportWagen still rides on the old Golf platform, the odds look to be in our favor.

Former Porsche boss Wiedeking won't face criminal charges over VW bid

Mon, 28 Apr 2014 11:01:00 EST

Hedge fund managers have been suing Porsche for years now, alleging that the car company lied about its intentions during its failed attempt to take over Volkswagen, a gambit that caused them billion in losses. Over the same period, authorities in Stuttgart built a criminal case against former CEO Wendelin Wiedeking (above, left) and Chief Financial Officer Holger Härter (right), filing charges in December 2012. When those fund plaintiffs lost their most recent court case, one of the dimming lights in the dark and receding tunnel was that the criminal investigation might unearth more evidence about Porsche's actions that could help the plaintiffs in pending litigation.
Bloomberg reports that another light has gone out, though, with a Stuttgart court dismissing the market manipulation case before going to trial because, as a court spokesperson said, "there wasn't enough evidence backing up the charges." When prosecutors get the files back from the court, they have a week to decide to refile, but unless they've been sandbagging evidence that could bolster the case, the only lights at the end of the tunnel will be those welcoming Wiedeking and Härter back to the world of legally unencumbered men.
