Exterior Color: Red

This is a very special car that has been loved and pampered by it's owner who has had it for the past ten years. It was a pan off restoration that was done in the late 90's and then later the engine was up dated to a 1776cc for more comfortable cruising. It has been won every show it has been in! The restorations was done by a now retired restorer of Vintage VW's, his work is still considered to be of the highest quality. The interior is a Subtle Vinyl door panels with matching seat covers. The carpet is double looped carpet that matches the interior beautifully. All interior knobs and handles are high quality chrome and ivory. The rear view mirror is original and had been restored, it has that swing down mechanism that is inherent to VW's. It also has an AM Radio with original knobs and antenna. There is a temp gauge, correct turn signal and headlight switch, etc. The convertible headliner is the correct white for this period. The convertible is tan with matching boot. When the restoration was done all the heater channels were restored and it was converted to a 12 volt. All the fenders and bumpers are original and were triple chrome plated. They still look stunning! Since these pictures were taken the owner has replaced with eyelids over the lights. He since has installed European Halogen sealed beam for better lighting and LED directional and stop light function. This could easily be changed back to original. The owner also has the birth certificate from Germany. He hates to part with this beauty! it really is the best of both worlds, it has the look of the original but is updated tastefully so it is also a blast to drive. It is a really head turner out on the road! I have to say I would love to have this one for myself! Please call Tammi if you have any questions, (916) 606-5687.

YouTube's Super Bowl commercial buzz list dominated by automakers [w/videos]Thu, 31 Jan 2013
After Sunday's big game, YouTube will be the place to watch every commercial that you missed when you left your seat for an emergency guac refill or, as we say in Cleveland, took the Browns to the Super Bowl. That makes YouTube the nation's water cooler on Monday, and it's got some preliminary stats to share in the lead up to kickoff.
As you know, Super Bowl advertisers, particularly automakers, like to endlessly tease their big budget commercials in the weeks before the game, many times revealing them outright days in advance. Because of this, YouTube can tell us which commercials have been viewed the most so far, and their top five list is all automakers.
Kaley Cuoco appears to have been a good investment for Toyota, as her ad for the RAV4 has garnered the most YouTube views - six million and counting - among Super Bowl commercials so far. Second place goes to Mercedes-Benz, though not its actual Super Bowl commercial, but rather the teaser for it. You know, the one with Kate Upton and the car washing, which is up to 5.6 million views. Third place is Audi's Prom commercial (3.3M views), fourth goes to Volkswagen's slightly controversial Get In, Get Happy ad (3.3M views), and the fifth and final spot is bookended by the teaser video for Kaley Cuoco's commercial (3.2M views). You can watch all five in order below.
Audi rumored to buy Alfa Romeo, officials deny itThu, 28 Mar 2013
For more than two years, Volkswagen has been making public statements about its willingness to buy Alfa Romeo and quadruple the Italian brand's sales, and for just as long, Fiat CEO Sergio Marchionne has replied with some version of "Mr. Piëch, drop it." According to a report in Ward's Auto, all that jousting might be over: it claims that sources close to both Marchionne and Audi CEO Rupert Stadler admit that the two are in talks for Audi to buy not just Alfa Romeo, but a production plant in Italy. In fact, a final deal could possibly include partsmaker Magnetti Marelli.
Against that backdrop, a report by German news weekly Stern quotes a Fiat spokesmen as saying it doesn't comment on rumors and an Audi rep has said flatly that "There is no substance in the news." If a sale is being arranged, the timing would seem to point to how eager Fiat is to raise cash to complete its major initiatives. Even though Alfa Romeo continues to delay its return to the US, it just showed off the production version of the 4C at the Geneva Motor Show (shown above) and said that preferred Fiat dealerships here would get them. Then there's Alfa's recently concluded deal with Mazda to develop a roadster based on the next generation MX-5 Miata - a deal that would seem to help both the Italian and Japanese brands.
The monetary issues are troublesome, though. Fiat is taking a beating in the European market and its weak-kneed balance sheet is delaying gotta-have-it products like the Jeep Cherokee. Fiat has been talking to banks about getting money to buy the rest of Chrysler and those financial institutions have also raised issues about debt and cash reserves, and the nasty game of chess Fiat is playing with the United Auto Workers (and now the court system about the portion of Chrysler it doesn't own) could end up blowing another hole in Marchionne's plans. It is possible that this could finally have convinced Fiat to at least see how serious Audi's parent company, Volkswagen, is about buying Alfa Romeo. Or it could be just another rumor.
Silverado HD, Touareg V10 TDI face off in diesel tug-of-warSun, 30 Dec 2012
A couple weeks ago, we watched a Chevrolet Silverado get dominated by a Dodge Ram Heavy Duty in a fullsize pickup tug-of-war, but in that truck's defense, Chevy's Vortec gas engine was no match for the torquey Cummins turbo diesel. For our next round of vehicular tug-of-war, a Duramax-powered Silverado HD takes on Volkswagen Touareg V10 TDI.
Now, on paper, putting the Duramax V8's 365 horsepower and 660 pound-feet of torque up against the V10's 310 hp and 553 lb-ft looks like an easy win for the Bowtie, but unfortunately, this battle has a similar result as the Dodge versus Chevy video, with the Silverado smoking its tires trying to move forward as it gets pulled backwards. Put another way: YouTube 2, Chevy Silverado 0.
It just goes to show, though, that big tires, bolt-on fender flares and goofy smoke stacks don't improve your towing abilities. Besides, what did the Silverado driver expect when the Touareg V10 TDI has towed a Boeing 747 in the past?
