for the first time since May 1999 GeWilli does not own a TDI
kind of feeling a bit odd... even my kids say "fill up the car with fuel" not 'gas' so there's that.
Now, i still have all dem der tools for doin dem tbelts and turbos and nozzles and clutches and drive shafts and everything. Maybe...
come on, no one wants to pick this up? how about $500?
don't make me take it to the salvage yard. I've come to the realization that I don't have the time to part it out myself but need to get rid of it. Maybe YOU want a part it out project? Drive it this winter, part it out once the weather...
nah, never, you'll never get rid of me, i may have to take a break for a bit but when my oldest kid takes over this wagon replacement, i'll be in the market for a set of oil burner powered wheels...
But I just really hope my passion and everything i've put into this 1Z can find a good home.
Taking it to scrap yard for disposal seems easier than dealing with CL (or has been)
project cars not super in demand eh? makes sense, esp given the consistency of this body to rust out, too bad the motor is in so much better shape.
$1000? Heck I'd take just about any offer at this point.

timing belt done at 245,000
Starts perfectly, no smoke in summer, some smoke at start up in winter but no smoke once warm.
Clean running, smooth, and well maintained engine.
Comes with transmission and clutch that has less...
I like the idea of two pieces with the union. I have to get that bit of flex too.
Bit of vise grip work and the thing is removed. Helped to cut the line right above each fitting. not looking forward to feeding it back through under the heat shield though.
So, I'm guessing that it is not a factory part? The line blew on mine just as it comes out from under the resonator heat shield. only a few blocks from home so I was able to get back no big deal.
Lines going into the brake pressure regulator from the front are in good shape, but the ones from...
Other than those stubborn seatbelt guides removing the trim wasn't nearly as bad as everyone has made it out to be all these years. A lot to do for two Strut tower bolts I suppose but all these years (12?) of hearing about the horrors of removing the trim to get to the strut towers... that was...
