1979 - Volkswagen Bus/vanagon on 2040-cars
Bothell, Washington, United States
Mint condition, show quality fully restored 1979 Riviera. 2 owner van (previous owner was a local politician.) Less than 5000 miles on rebuilt 2 fuel injected hydraulic valve motor and transmission by local VW shop here in Portland Oregon. I have paper work on the rebuild. Mint interior, all seats have been reupholstered. Full show quality high end window out, door off paint job on rust free body. All new door and window seals. Only 152k original miles. The van has only been driven sparingly since the restoration. The van has always been garaged. Absolutely ZERO RUST!!! The van looks like it just rolled of the show room floor in 1979. Both the first and second owners were meticulous when it came to the maintenance and general care and preservation of the van. Custom made awning cost over 1500 is included. The van was stored for many years prior to restoration. Runs, drives, perfect. One of the best, if not the best Riviera's in the country. The pictures speak for them selves.... PAINT/ BODY- Show quality full window out paint job over the original paint. Doors were removed as well. The car was painted using Dupont 2 stage paint. The entire bus was color sanded and buffed and polished. Several coats of clear coat were applied to give the paint a very nice shine and depth. All the doors were removed as well as all windows. The doors were repainted including the interior sides. All jambs were repainted. The bus was repainted its rare factory orange color. The paint was done to show quality standards. The body is laser strait, all door and body gaps are perfect. The bus was completely rust free and needed very little body work. All new door seals and window rubber on all windows. All glass is in good condition. Sought after factory orange and white color, (rare on a Riviera). The bumpers and wheels where sandblasted and repainted. No wrecks or accident history. All lenses are in good condition. Spotless under carriage. The factory under coating is still in great condition. The wheel wells had new undercoating applied when the van was repainted. This is a accident and rust free West Coast VW. POP TOP- The pop top is in great condition, The original canvas is in excellent condition.

Skoda, oh Skoda. You're just so cool. Maybe it's the fact that it's a brand that we don't get in these United States, but Skoda's rebadged Volkswagens, in particular the new Octavia vRS shown here, are just different enough from the hum-drum VWs on our shores that the Czech brand seems strangely desirable. Maybe we're just craving forbidden fruit.
This short, minute-long spot covers the new vRS in a world of excess, where strollers ride on 26-inch wheels, lawnmowers feature V8 engines and ice cream cones are the size of toddlers. As things often go in these ads, the Octavia vRS draws the eyes of passerby that are seemingly use to things far more ridiculous than a reasonably priced Czech sedan. In reality, the Octavia should be fairly familiar to American buyers. It uses the same 2.0-liter, turbocharged four-pot found in the Volkswagen GTI and Jetta GLI, with 217 horsepower, and sits on the same platform as the Audi A3 and Volkswagen Golf. Take a look at the full spot, below.
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 has petitioned the FIA to hold on to the current specifications for cars in the World Rally Championship, according to Autosport.com. The move is evidently an effort to keep as many competitors in the sport as possible, despite the fact that using the current spec racers may actually hurt Volkswagen's chances at winning. The three factory teams currently competing in the WRC are at the end of a three-year homologation cycle at the end of 2013, and new cars are expected to bow next year. But developing new racers could cost as much as $4.7 million.
That price tag would put M-Sport (which fields Ford racers) out of the WRC game for 2014 and would put Citroën participation in question as well. VW has already begun work on the next iteration of its Polo R WRC, and the hatch has nabbed four wins in six rounds this season. Now it appears that car won't bow until at least 2015. The FIA has officially agreed to freeze homologation of new WRC cars until the end of next season.
