It is time to let go of my 1985 Volkswagen Westfalia. I purchased it from the original owner/family. I have done alot of work to make it road trip ready with my wife and 6 year old. We recently went to the east coast and back with no issues. The engine runs great, doesn't burn oil or leak. The manual transmission shifts like new. It has 153k on it and the odometer and speedometer still work. The AC works fine and has had alot of work done. I have made several upgrades over stock. I have also added AC to use at the campground with a panel that mounts in the passenger window. The Ac unit is 12k btu and 8k btu heat, both work good. Its sleeps 2 above and 2 below. This vanagon drives great, and will go 65-70 all day long. So before anybody asks,  yes it will drive home. It has been a fun vanagon and gets lots of looks and compliments. Even though its not perfect cosmetically it is clean. I will list the work done below. All parts listed as replaced have been done in the last year and 2,500 miles.

Engine- original 1.9l runs great, heads resealed by previous owner. In the last year parts replaced: plugs,wires,cap, rotor, rebuilt throttle body by rocky jennings, intake manifold and plenum  painted w/por 15 and new gaskets, fuel injector seals, all fuel lines and clamps, removed and painted and installed new grommets/gaskets/lines on fuel tank, idle control unit, oxygen sensor, fuel filter, muffler and tail pipe, just changed the oil w/ mobil one synthetic.

Transmission- greased all bushings, changed gear oil w/ proper brad penn oil, new slave cylinder. added shifter extension, quiet, shifts smooth.

lights/electrical- lights work, wipers and washer work, signals work but for some reason the rt. blinkers don't flash when the headlights are on.

interior- new north westy tent this spring, sunbrella material color taupe, 3 windows, cd player 4 new speakers, new german waeco 12v fridge, works great, runs quiet,  keeps popsicles frozen, works 30 degrees out of level-made for boats, keeps 2 half gallon containers in door, made custom panel and door below for more storage, supposed to run for 3 1/2 days on battery.  new agm deep cycle battery under rear seat, power max charger, blue sea fuse panel under sink, yandina combiner/separator, so it charges off alternator, also won't kill the starting battery sink works great w/ electric pump, extra 12v added in cabinet near rear seat for my daughter to watch movies, 4 point harness added for children safety, previous owner had a cb radio at one time so there is a block off plate added in dash and extra ant. on passenger side,

AC- removed and resealed ac unit, new expansion valve, drier, high pressure line, resealed compressor, new ac/fan switch, filled w/ redtek, 12v fan added to help get air to the front, can also be used to cirulate at night.

Wheels/suspension- Mercedes clk wheels w/aluminum Wolfsburg caps, new Pirelli extra load tires, new front an rear shocks, new upper ball joints, 12 mm spacers, new lug nuts, bolts, studs, new power steering rack and tie rods installed a couple of years ago by previous owner, new rear wheel cylinders and all soft brake lines, drives and handles tight. 

Body/paint- wild 80's graffics and repaint which is not that great of quality, It hasn't bothered me since it is used for camping and I won't shed a tear if it gets scratched. It has its share of nicks, scratches, filler, filler in the front right and passenger door, pass. door has to be slammed shut, filler in rt rear, another spot in the left rear from previous owner's neighbor backing into it. The filler is from dents/damage, the chassis is solid and not rusty,no major rust, some small spots at some seams all areas pictured, I sprayed brown paint of spots so they won't stand out as much-pictured as well

parts removed- I removed the propane tank, it is included if requested. It will need painted and the valve updated. The original fridge is included if requested, it is like new but these fridges are small and don't work that well, I also have the original panel. The stove is there, I was going to add an adapter to run 1 lb propane tanks but never did,always used a Coleman stove 

I have a 1980 westfalia for parts for an additional $500 if the buyer wants it.

I can assist with delivery after payment if I can haul it to and from in a day for the expense of fuel.

I may add more, I have retyped this 4 times and stuff disappears.I will add Saturday and take pics of the portable ac unit. 

Shipping is up to the buyer. It can be stored here no problem. If you are from europe you will have to get your own shipping quotes. You can call during the day at 615-604-2567. I have a clean title in my name.


On Aug-31-13 at 07:02:01 PDT, seller added the following information:

temp II sensor, temp gauge sensor, intake boots were replaced on the engine as well, picture added of AC unit. I have spent several thousand dollars in maintenance and upgrades.

Honda wins Commercial of the Decade, but not for the ad you think [w/VIDEO]

Fri, 18 Dec 2009

Honda's Commercial of the Decade: "Grrr" - Click above to watch video
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's De Silva says next Scirocco will be 'completely different'

Tue, 02 Apr 2013

From our perspective, the reborn Volkswagen Scirocco is a handsome (if squat) little thing. Yet design-wise, it's always struck us as uncomfortably close to the Golf three-door hatchback with which it shares its basic underpinnings. That aesthetic kinship may be part of the reason why Volkswagen has steadfastly refused to import the Scirocco to North America, seeing as how the Golf doesn't regularly set the company's sales charts alight, and it's less expensive.
But that visual similarity might be about to change, says Walter De Silva, who recently told Australia's Car Advice that, "It must be completely different... we don't want to repeat the bodystyle of the Scirocco, we want to change that." Further, the Volkswagen Group's design boss says that the next-generation car isn't terribly far along in development yet - "at the moment, it's only a studio [project]... it's not defined." It's probably just as well, as the new seventh-generation Golf arguably borrows some of its design from the current Scirocco anyway.
So we should expect a much bolder, more differentiated design, right? Well, yes, no and maybe. Back in September, De Silva himself was quoted as saying that the era of flamboyant styling has passed, and that future VW designs will be simpler to better reflect the times and preserve resale value. So... how different could it be?

Volkswagen looking to acquire Proton, Lotus?

Thu, 26 Jul 2012

Let's say you're an automaker bent on world domination looking to grow your sales. That's going to have you looking at Asian markets, because that's where some of the biggest growth has been, and that's exactly what Volkswagen is doing as it considers making another run at Malaysia's Proton.
Reuters reports that Volkswagen is interested in at least a partial stake, if not a controlling interest in Lotus-parent Proton as a way to continue a production presence in the region without having to build its own factory.
Volkswagen already builds the Passat in a DRB-HICOM facility in Pekan, Malaysia, and plans are in place to build the Jetta and Polo there, as well. With both southeast Asia and its relationship with Proton figuring so importantly in Volkswagen's plans for expansion, buying into Proton can help ensure stability. Volkswagen is being tight-lipped about the whole idea, but CEO Martin Winterkorn did recently say, "it's our clear goal to continue the successful (expansion) course of past years with great dynamics and stability," which sounds an awful lot like deals are on the table to smooth the path to further growth.
