What do you mean, ask anyone that has had a ride in it if it is fast?
I've had the pleasure of driving and riding with Jason from Wisconsin to Vancouver. I've had my share of time behind this beast. It's beyond fast! There might be a few out there faster but this is just an absolute blast...
Fire Photos from Jason
Just hit my site to see the index of the fire photos, click on any to download or view.
What a horrible loss. I just can't imagine what he must be going through.
289 for b99! Almost makes me wish I still drove places :) Got the day off tomorrow so cold bike ride is in my future. Someone is coming to check out the Passat on Saturday. It's a nice car, I hate seeing it sit. We will see what happens.
My vote for this year's TDiFest above and beyond award (or whatever it is called) should go to both Michael and Jason!
Michael, that's my old pump. Tried and true, my TDi never left me down....hoping the same now for this person.
Yes it does have the CD Player. This is the dual din model with CD and cassette. the monsoon series. Worked great before the car was totaled. Note: Cassette player never used :). This is the typical VW Factory Monsoon. Just search the web, tons of pictures i'm sure.
Hi Mike, this is out of my now departed 02. I haven't had to enter the code but know I have it written down at home. I'll dig it up and post it here. THANKS Jason for all the posts and hard work. Makes saying goodbye to my reliable old friend that much easier.
Yes, this is still for sale. It is completely stock so yes it still has it's 5th injector and EGR. Still have the top and bottom cover though they have seen better days.
Going to find some time for Jason to swing over and check the pump out but need to bribe him with dinner and drinks and...
Post again if you decide to drive this back to Elkhart (which it should make without too many stops to check oil). I live in Milwaukee and my TDi is totaled. If I do decide to get another car, I'd love to check yours out. It is very clean.....other than those super ugly wheels :)
If I still drove more than a couple of thousand miles a year I would already have bought this. OilHammer maintained, Fresh Belt/suspension/brakes. It's basically brand new. Would love to see pictures but if it has never been driving in rain or snow, it's got to be beautiful.
TDiTony (which I...
Thanks for keeping my post alive guys.
My sad news is that it appears as though my nephew has totaled my 02 Jetta now! Waiting to see it and hear from the insurance. I will not let the engine go to the yard unless I see it is gone (side crash so hopefully OK). It has about 127K and burns...
Thanks for letting everyone know this is a decent car. If it sells before the new year, I will donate every dime over 2500 that i get for it to the Akita rescue that Jason is involved with.
I can't tell you how many times I get called from Jason and his is god knows...
I believe the link to the pictures is back up. Sorry FreeNAS server upgrade didn't go as planned last night.:mad: At least it is working now with GB speed on the local network. Sorry if anyone was trying to check them out while it was rebuilding the array.
I'm selling my 97 Passat TDi with 180k on it. Pictures at www.madrabbit.ws
The good: TC's all around replaced about 30k or so ago. Brake pads and rotors done about 15k. The car is rust free and the interior is clean and rip free. One year old alloys with good rubber. Brand new JVC mp3 CD...
Into it was NOT the word, MoFo Pissed off at that damn car would be better stated. At least it is done. Going to change the oil and give it to my sister. Gonna miss the fun driving now that I'm going back to a stock TDi for a while. I just think I'll start riding bikes more.
