I'm not sure if this is the proper forum for what seems to be a VW red headed step child here on tdicclub. It's not a TDI yet but was born a VW diesel so hey fhey need loving too.

Getting new paint and upgrades

Sweet!
Might I have seen that cruising up/down the 101 around SLO or 5 Cities?
thanks
Its been in the central valley area for about 15 years since Ive owned it. I bought it out of the Chico area before that. I put a new fully built and balanced engine in it apx. ten years ago but it has less than 1000 miles on it. Giles injection pump, clutch, brakes and all hydraulics, tires and rims. The wife wants to drive it now, we just need to still get a few minor details done. Still looking for a turbo set up.

Very nice.
There are a couple caddies going up and down road around here. Always happy to see someone putting a little TLC into the old stuff.

We all become old stuff if we are lucky

This old 1.6 idi hammer and anvil diesel technology will still be running long after my TDI is dead and gone. We call the truck "peanut butter" after it's ability to run off of alternative fuel.
