I think about seven VW's have lurked in my garage over the years.

Four have been diesels. It all started with a bug, then a Porsche 914 (really a VW with a Porsche 5-speed transmission) then a Karmann Ghia.

The diesel input began with a brand new 1981 Rabbit 5M. A turbocharged Quantum 5M followed.

Recently I sold my 1982 Rabbit Diesel PU 5M after 27 years and 300,000 miles.

The restoration guy turned it (after paint/upholstery et al upgrades) and pocketed $12,000 less his expenses.

He's a nice guy and the little trucklet looked great.

Enter the TDI. This sailor has ab-so-lutely zero buyer's remorse
