CAR DOES NOT RUN!
In the middle of trying to buy a house, so the project has to go. The car was my daily until I bought a new car a couple months back. mileage is around 175k on the clock, however the previous owner said that he had the 8v rebuilt around 100k. When I bought the car I was not worried, due to how strong it ran, and that I had intentions of dropping my 16v into it. It ran perfect with ac and everything working. I then pulled the stock 8v to swap a built 16v into the car. As it sits right now the original 8v is out of the car as well as the 16v. Everything is here, 16v ecu labeled and ready to be put in, etc. Interior is super clean, outside looks great aside from a few small dents from pebbles flying up on the highway. All rust has been taken care of, except a small spot of surface rust on the hood by the windshield, it is smaller than half a penny. Most of these cars are complete rust by now, this one is super clean. I know im gonna take a loss, so get a great deal. Stock wheels are currently on the car, but it will come with the Enkie 92's that are pictured as well. The auction will include everything vw, or related to the build that I have, I need space due to moving.
Feel free to ask questions.
I can email or text more pictures.
You will need to bring a trailer since the car does not currently run. Located in Central Florida, Zip 32750

The current Volkswagen Beetle already tries to be a fairly retro-looking ride by cribbing styling elements from the iconic original. However, for the new, limited-edition Classic model, VW is hopping into the time machine to grab even more vintage cues. The company is even cutting the price, perhaps in hopes of turning around flagging sales this year. You don't need to wait long for any of these upgrades either because the automaker says that the Classic goes on sale this week for $20,195, *excluding the $820 destination charge. That's $100 less than a bone-stock Beetle.

Starting as a standard Beetle with VW's 1.8-liter turbocharged four-cylinder with 170 horsepower and 177 pound-feet of torque, the Classic edition comes with a six-speed automatic and then adds some retro flair. It includes new vintage-look 17-inch wheels with simulated dog dish polished hubcaps over black spokes. It also comes with a rear spoiler, and the automaker is offering the model in Pure White, Black Uni, and Reflex Silver.
The interior mixes in a few more classic touches but includes modern amenities like a standard navigation system, satellite radio and multifunction steering wheel. However, the seats are finished in a two-tone design combining light brown leatherette on the sides and checked cloth centers, plus lumbar support for the driver's side. The shift knob and handbrake also get wrapped in leather.
Honda's Commercial of the Decade: "Grrr" - Click above to watch video
Tue, 22 Apr 2014 09:15:00 EST
The mad men at Adweek recently voted for the Commercial of the Decade (Super Bowl commercials not included) and Honda took top honors over memorable ads from the last ten years by companies like Nike, Budweiser and Sony. That's not a big surprise considering Honda often puts a huge amount of effort into its on-air spots. However, the Japanese automaker didn't win for the commercial you might have expected: "Cog." Though Honda's famous commercial that breaks down a European Accord Tourer into a Rube Goldberg-esque machine was also a finalist, it was beaten by another Honda commercial called "Grrr" that's narrated by Garrison Keillor of all people. You've probably never seen it, but you can after the jump.
Volkswagen also made the list of finalists, but the particular ad chosen out of all the comical VW ads we've seen was unexpected as well. Most surprising carmaker with a commercial in the finals: Saturn. Who knew...
Volkswagen has followed up on a stop-sale order from earlier this month, announcing a voluntarily recall of 26,400 vehicles that are powered by the brand's 1.8-liter, turbocharged four-cylinder engine. The new mill replaced the despised 2.5-liter five-cylinder in the Jetta, Passat, Beetle and Beetle Convertible last year. Weirdly, though, of the 26,452 units covered in the recall, only 1,655 are customer vehicles.
According to VW, the affected models were built between February 1 and April 6 of this year, and feature bad O-ring seals in the transmission oil cooler. Apparently, the faulty O-rings could cause a fluid leak, as they won't seal between the oil cooler and transmission. VW is blaming a material change from a supplier for the problem.
There have been no fires, injuries, accidents or fatalities relating to this issue, which VW will be fixing free of charge. Customers will need to report to dealers to have the O-rings replaced.
