Well, you could start by posting more info to this thread. What's the mileage? Area there any mechanical or cosmetic issues at all? How about some more pictures, including the interior? This is as good a place as any to advertise.

Fees are high, but auction fever can really work for you on eBay. It may take a couple of re-listings for an eBay listing to generate enough interest, but if you can stomach the wait it could be worth it.

Tell me more about your car, the good and the bad. I am interested enough to drive it to CA. When was t/b changed, do all window regulators operate? Things like trhat would be most helpful. What kind of oil did you use. Is check engine light on? Etc., etc.

Hi Tom,

A couple of questions:

1. From the picture of the engine compartment, it looks like the coolant reservoir is filled with "prestone" green coolant. Is this the case? If so, is it because it's what the repair shop chose to use? Do you know when this may have happened?

2. Was the replacement engine a new long block from VW, or a remanufactured unit from a third-party rebuilder?

Thanks!
