1984 Volkswagen Vw Rabbit Diesel New Paint, No Rust on 2040-cars
Bangor, Maine, United States
For sale is a 1984 VW Rabbit with a 1.6 diesel engine (non turbo) with 236k miles. The engine is not running, so it is non operational. I do not what is wrong and not able to get it fixed. I have owned the car for 10 years. I drove it for about 5 years and was fun to drive and economical, getting about 40-45 miles/gallon. The car did run on vegetable oil for a couple years using a GreaseCar conversion kit. The equipment has since been removed and will not be included with the car.
The exterior of the car has been reconditioned with new paint, wheels, tires, caps, light covers. The car has been in a handful of car shows and took a lot of attention. A lot of money has been invested into the car with the exterior renovations and repairs, including a new rack and pinion steering rack and rebuilt fuel injector pump and new fuel injectors. The car has been in storage for the last 5 years and not driven due to family issues and inability to maintain car.
The car has been taken well care of and has only been driven in 4 Maine winters out of the 30 years! The first owner was a part time resident and only drove it in the summer. I also did not drive it during the winter when road salt was applied. As a result, this car has little to no rust. The exterior was buffed out removing dings, scratches etc and given a new paint job. The original color was baby blue with exterior color now a dark blue. The paint on hood of car is scratched up since the paint job. The car comes 4 original VW wheel rims with 4 studded snow tires. Comes with the original owner's manual, repair manual. I am also including a box full of new parts including 2 wheel hubs, timing belt, oil pan gasket, fuel filter and an oil filter. Many repair bills are also included. Title is free and clear. In Maine, any car older than 1996 does not require a title nor does it need to be up to date.
This is a PROJECT CAR and is NON OPERATIONAL and is being sold as-is. As mentioned above the exterior has been renovated but will need engine and electrical work. Prior to putting it into storage, I was in the process of redesigning the electrical system from scratch and had purchased and installed a new (rebuilt) injector pump ($500) and new fuel injectors. At least two of the doors are non functional (will not open from outside or inside). This car is good for someone that is looking for a project, is mechanical and has the time and money to put the car back on the road.
I am the third owner, not the 5th owner, as mentioned in the auto report.
5% of this sale will be donated to the 11q Research and Resource Group. This organization to near and dear to my heart, as my daughter has this rare genetic condition. As a result of the financial and time constraints (to say the least) of having a special needs daughter, this is the true reason why this car is being sold!

The seventh-generation Volkswagen Golf is hardly new to us. In fact, we've already driven it. And elsewhere in the world, the new Golf is already winning awards. Even so, we still have yet to see the US-spec version of the car, though that won't be the case much longer. As part of the New York Auto Show festivities later this month, Volkswagen will finally show off the 2015 Golf models destined for our shores.
Three different versions of the Golf will debut under the lights of New York City's Javits Center: the turbocharged TSI, oil-sipping TDI and hotter GTI. The first model in that list uses Volkswagen's new 1.8-liter turbocharged inline four-cylinder engine, replacing the outgoing 2.5-liter naturally aspirated inline five-cylinder. The latter two models use familiar engines: the 2.0-liter TDI diesel and 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder, respectively.
Even though the new Golf officially debuts later this month, it won't go on sale in the US until the first quarter of 2014. We'll be waiting patiently.
This, friends, is what happens when you shoehorn 395 horsepower into a Golf. You get a three-door hatch that will happily scurry to 62 miles per hour in 3.9 seconds and on to a top speed of 201 mph. Oh yes, we like you, Golf R 400 Concept.
As we explained in our original post, the R 400 is the long-awaited successor to bonkers Golf creations like the GTI W12 from 2007 and, more recently, the Design Vision GTI. It's powered by the same 2.0-liter, turbocharged four-cylinder found in a number of Volkswagen (and Audi, SEAT and Skoda) products, although it's been heavily massaged to pump out 332 pound-feet of torque along side its amplified horsepower.
Naturally, it's been lowered and now rides on 19-inch wheels. Outside of those changes, though, mums the word on suspension and chassis enhancements. While this is a bummer, the striking looks of the Golf R 400 more than make up for it.
Bloomberg Markets is reporting that BMW, Volkswagen and Ferrari have been using tungsten ore sourced from Columbia's FARC rebel terrorists. The extensive story focuses on Columbia's illegal mining trade and calls into question the provenance of the rare ore that is used not only in crankshaft parts production, but is also found in the world's computing and telecommunications industry for use in screens.
The ore is mined by the FARC (Fuerzas Armadas Revolucionarias de Colombia, or Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia - People's Army), and exported to Pennsylvania, where it is refined. The refined ore is then sent over to Austria, where a company called Plansee turns it into a finished product. Now, it's important to note that we aren't talking about the world's supply of tungsten here. In 2012, Plansee's American refinery purchased 93.2 metric tons of tungsten, valued at $1.8 million. That's peanuts, with the entire Colombian tungsten mining industry producing just one percent of the world's supplies.
That doesn't make indirectly supporting FARC any more acceptable, though. BMW, VW and Ferrari are all committed to not accepting mineral supplies from the Democratic Republic of Congo, which is also in the grips of a guerrilla insurrection funded, in part, by illegal mining. The same commitment would figure to extend to Colombian mining, but as BMW points out, it's difficult for a multi-national manufacturer to know where every item in its supply chain comes from. A company spokesperson says as much, telling Bloomberg, "These few grams out of the billions of tons of raw materials passing through the BMW supply chain are of no practical relevance."
