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.

Anti-UAW VW workers move to form own union

Sat, 30 Aug 2014 15:01:00 EST

The struggle over unionization at the Volkswagen factory in Chattanooga, TN, continues to get more complicated. There's now a second union fighting to organize at the plant; although this one is staunchly against the actions of the United Auto Workers. At the same time, the UAW is still signing up voluntary members to its recently created Local 42 at the facility and is reportedly near having a majority of the hourly employees on its side.
The new, anti-UAW union campaign is being spearheaded by employee Mike Burton, according to Reuters, and he calls his group the American Council of Employees. He claims to already have 108 signatures in support of his organization. Burton believes that the UAW is harmful to businesses, and his goal is to force another vote to determine a preferred union among workers.
The UAW was initially defeated (712 to 626) when it attempted a union vote at the Tennessee plant in February. However, UAW secretary-treasurer Gary Casteel told Reuters that Local 42 has already signed up over 700 members. If it can reach a majority of the roughly 1,500 employees, the group hopes VW might consider recognizing it as the factory's union.

Touring the Volkswagen Museum in Wolfsburg

Mon, 23 Sep 2013 11:29:00 EST

Forgive the ribbon up top - this isn't so much of a Read This as a Look At This. Ran When Parked took a tour of the sprawling Volkswagen Museum in Wolfsburg, and while there's a spot of text about the different and unique vehicles on display in the rotating exhibits, it's largely the collection of pictures of odd, one-off VW-badged cars and vans that excites. If you're a fan of the weird and wild, this is a post you'll want to look at.
As RWP points out, this is the larger, but less busy, museum targeted purely at Volkswagen products. The smaller AutoStadt museum, meanwhile, covers a much broader swath, with products from other Volkswagen Group members.

VW confirms Golf GTD diesel coming to US for 2016

Wed, 03 Jul 2013 11:00:00 EST

Part of the Volkswagen Golf recipe that has helped the car sell more than 30 million units in just under 40 years is the number of variants in which the hatchback is offered. Building on that range here in the US, Automotive News is reporting that we will finally be getting the sporty Golf GTD, likely as a 2016 model. It's the GTD, you'll recall, that crosses the performance abilities of the venerable GTI with a powerful and fuel-efficient diesel engine.
After speaking with Andreas Valbuena, Volkswagen product manager for the Golf, AN not only says that the GTD will for sale in the US in a couple years, it also estimates a baseline price of around $27,000, which would place it between the current pricing for the GTI and the Golf R. The GTD is launching in Europe this summer, but we won't be getting the seventh-generation Golf in the US for another year. The news about the performance diesel model isn't entirely unexpected - VW officials have been hinting at it for at least a year now, going so far as to import a sixth-generation model for media test drives on US soil, a task we happily took them up on last year.
The Mk VII GTD uses VW's 2.0-liter TDI engine with output increased to 184 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque, allowing the car to sprint to 60 miles per hour in about seven seconds while returning more than 40 mpg in highway driving. We can't wait.
