I have decided to sell the all original 1991 Westfalia that my kids and I were going to camp in this summer. I bought it a few months ago in Washington and drove it home. I need to sell it to pay some debt off. I have a '79 Riviera in the home stretch of a preservation resto, so don't feel sorry for the kiddos, we will camp! I have replaced some little odds and ends, including skylight, skylight knob, skylight seal, all four small plastic hubcaps (2 were missing.) The front table was missing so I ordered one along with one knob. All parts were ordered from Gowesty. This Westy runs and drives great. The 2.1 with auto trans really pushes it down the road just fine, in my opinion it has plenty of power. In fact, in comparison to the automatic bay windows i have driven it really scoots. It shifts as it should and there are no funky noises. No leaks either, not counting a slight trans fluid leak that is coming from the fitting in the pan where the dipstick tube goes in, which should be an easy fix. It hasnt leaked enough since ive owned it to even register lower on the stick. The engine leaves zero oil on the ground and does not smoke at all. Runs quiet and smooth. Will need a catalytic converter/ muffler at some point. It isn't loud, but there is some noise coming from the catalytic converter, which means that some of the platinum inside has broken loose. Common and a bolt-on, but worth mentioning. Previous owner claimed the engine had a piston/cylinder rebuild at about 120k. It sure runs like new but I have no proof of this. As far as equipment goes, here is the rundown: Fridge works on propane, 110 and 12v. Stove works great, both burners Pump for sink does not work, either the switch is bad or the small inexpensive submersible pump needs replaced. Canvas on pop top is very good except a section in the rear that was "left outside" when top was put down. I chose not to replace as it could be repaired and kept original if new owner prefers. What this Westy has going for it is a super carfax, original paint, which means that what you see is what you get, unlike some of the "fully restored" vans that are sometimes offered. Meaning it hasn't been messed with, which is the way to buy a used vehicle. This is not perfect or restored, it is however well kept and all original which speaks volumes. I welcome and prefer phone calls from serious bidders. This van has a clean WA title and the carfax looks to show 4 owners, if I'm reading it right. Please call with any questions and personal inspection is welcome if prospective buyers are near or willing to come to Coos Bay, Oregon. Shipping is to be secured and financed by new owner. Thank you for taking the time to review my add, and good luck if you decide to bid! This van is ready to do some serious camping this summer! Matt 541-294-6911

Porsche 911 with VW turbodiesel prepares for LeMons assault

Fri, 21 Mar 2014

LeMons racing is a wonderful example that setting limits can actually breed creativity. The series mandates that all entries must cost $500, not counting safety equipment, and that cap forces teams to be ingenious in how they build a racecar. Take for example this diesel-powered Porsche 911, which its creators have dubbed Ferkel the Nein-11, that will be racing in the Sears Pointless race this weekend in Sonoma, California.
This Frankenstein combines a 911 chassis that was originally bought just for its European powertrain and a Volkswagen TDI diesel engine mounted in the rear. After deciding the shell could still be of some use, the team decided to go racing. "We began brainstorming what replacement drivetrain to use for maximum offense and there was really only one answer: a diesel," said Philipp von Weitershausen, one of the team captains, to Jalopnik. They bought a 1998 Jetta TDI on the cheap and started figuring out a way to hack the engine into the bay. To pay respect to the donor, the VW's trunk was highly modified (and drilled) and grafted onto the back of Ferkel.
This team isn't a newcomer to LeMons. Its last car was a classic VW Beetle with a Subaru engine and dual controls, named Ferdinand the Bug, which could be driven from the left or right side. It's quite a sight.

Volkswagen E-Co-Motion Concept brings electric mobility to the commercial set

Wed, 06 Mar 2013

Volkswagen sees a future where the bulk of the world's freight is moved into city centers by train, then offloaded onto a fleet of smaller, light-duty commercial vehicles for final delivery. Those vehicles could wind up looking something like the company's E-Co-Motion Concept that debuted at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show. The EV features a modular underfloor drive unit comprised of a battery, motor and gearbox that can be paired with any number of cab and body configurations to suit a buyer's needs, from a refrigerated box to a standard flat bed.
The E-Co-Motion Concept features a rear-mounted electric motor with 113 horsepower and 199 pound-feet of torque. A standard 20 kWh battery pack provides a driving range of up to 62 miles, while 30 kWh and 40 kWh packs could deliver 93 and 124 miles of travel, respectively. Check out the press release below for more information.

Volkswagen hatches hotter GTI in Geneva

Tue, 05 Mar 2013

The all-new seventh-generation Volkswagen Golf hasn't even launched here in the United States, but over in Geneva, we're already getting our first glimpse at the hotter GTI hatchback. The fancy new Mk VII Golf is already off to a healthy start with positive reviews in Europe, and we have no doubt that this next GTI will work hard to regain its title as king of the hot hatches.
The big news for this generation of GTI is that for the first time ever, Volkswagen is actually offering two different power grades for the model, both relying on the 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-four. Standard cars pack 220 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque, but an optional performance pack ups the horsepower number to 230. Hitting 60 miles per hour takes 6.5 seconds (6.4 with the performance pack) and top speed is quoted at 153 mph (or 155 with the performance kit). Volkswagen will continue to offer the GTI with both six-speed manual and dual-clutch transmissions.
On the visual front, the sub-3,000-pound GTI adds the usual bit of hot hatch aggression over the standard Golf, and those changes carry over to the interior with a flat-bottomed wheel and, of course, plaid seats. She's certainly a looker, and while some of us do find the new Golf's design to be a bit staid and evolutionary, the enhancements for the GTI indeed tug on our enthusiast heart strings.
