    Alaska to Portland OR for a day

    That's right, last October I drove my TDI from SE Alaska to Portland OR for a day then turned around and went back. It was worth it to me. My fuel injector pump was leaking, winter is coming, and our state is restricting ferry service to our island. "Git'er done!" came to mind. Checking with...

    WTB 2003 or older Jetta TDI wagon

    I have been searching West Coast listings for a 5 speed wagon. I can fly in to most major hubs (PSG, SMF, SFO, SEA, BOI, DEN, PHX, etc) to pickup a good vehicle. Prefer no whistles or bells (a GL), a clean car, with clean title and ready to drive. Thanx Aug. 18 2007. Have found my TDI, a 5...
