Heads up, saw something for sale.

Offroad VW based vehicles have problems/insights all their own. Not to mention the knowledge gained in VW durability.

My fear would be that a day would come when I realized I wanted to drive it, but the opportunity had passed. Good luck in the future.ventures.
Don’t ever yield your gift of dream; Your knack for gumption, too. For “It’s the crazy ones that have all the fun," if dreamers yearn to do.

So I have this really cool client that lives about a 100 miles east of me, but has a cabin on the river very near me. We are doing some extensive remodeling on his garage there and taking some small bites at it. The first time I met him (about a year ago) he had a big SCORE sticker on the side of his truck and a few decals that kinda had the look of a chase vehicle. We shook hands and I explained that we were going to be friends now just because :wink: As it turns out he races vintage Mexican road racing, and has a couple of cars.

Anyway, I received an email from him today that was simply titled "Recognize this?" The only thing in the email was a picture.......

No, we have never talked about this car and I really have no idea why he would think I know anything about this :lol: What I do know, is that I probably will get to see this car....and maybe if I am lucky :mrgreen:

Since I don't have garage space... yet I am posting this as what looks like a pretty good deal (it would take my Cologne V6 very well I think).

I have been watching it and it just came down a hundred bucks. Parts alone are worth that I think.

At $350 that is pretty much a steal. If that thing was within a 150 miles of me I'd already be on the way.

it looks like the orange buggy has a Vanagon 1.9 engine in it based on the appearance of the oil filler, intake runners, exhaust, and I belive a thermostat housing.
