since i haven't brought to light my OTHER toys, i figured this would be a good time to do so.

i am a car guy period. i like the oddball cars that not many people like. mmainly VW but i have a couple others as well. i have a couple Dodges, a Mercury and a couple Chevys as well. so here is a few pics of what i have.....

first up.... my wifes 79 rabbit


my 79 rabbit 2 dr

the wifes 90 Passat Wagon. 2.0 16v auto, 2 year only color Calypso Green Metallic.... and a few of my 93 Passat GLX 2.8l VR6 5spd.    i now night shots are not real good but thats what i got.


wifes 81 rabbit convertible. 1.8l 16v, coil overs, full 90 body kit, power windows and BMW wheels.
in the process of restifying it.


my 81 rabbit pickup aka the halfassed caddy..... you'll understand.


and i have an 84 GTI but i cant seem to find any of my pics of it, although theres not much to it as its just a rolling shell.

my 90 Mercury Grand Marquis... aka the couch on wheels!


my 86 caprice wagon, 307 slowsmobile powered.....


85 caprice wagon 305 chevy powered.


75 ramcharger 4x4

First off, I don't believe I've said welcome!!!  I saw the pic of your truck in your build thread, can't wait to see more frequent updates!

Now then, I see you are into Vdubs!  I'm not going to hijack this thread with a question about an 87 gti of mine, so pm sent! :)

You have a really nice collection, minus the mercury.. been there had that Dead.

I would love to have an old rabbit/golf diesel....  I would trade one of my 620's for one in a heartbeat!

thanks! i will try and keep my build thread up to date.

yes i LOVE my dubs, i am more into the rabbits than anything else BUT i LOVE my passat and my GLI. my baby though has got to be my Passat. granted i love my Jetta but it needs alot of work right now.

the mercury although a beater, runs great. needs a water pump to be driveable again and although it looks terrible, its in decent shape.

now add to this..... a 93 BMW 325i. 216,000 miles, 4dr automatic. the ony thing i DONT like is the color but for the price i am not gonna complain. but the first time i get a ticket its going either silver or flat black. its BMW Brilliant Red. well at least 1/3 of it is, the rest is Brilliant PINK. it has its issues though. needs a waterpump, fan, fan clutch, alt/wp belt, and possibly a radiator. i also need to fix the drivers window as it likes to droop at full up and leak. but it runs, dont know how well it drives YET as it doesn't cool but no water in teh oil so thats a good sign.

 its got teh full leather interior, power seats, power windows, alarm system (not sure if factory or dealer installed), power sunroof, Panasonic CD player, power mirrors, and an almost complete tool kit. just missing the lug wrench, channel locks and the rod for the plug tool. its also got almost new tires (all 5) only 4 dents in the body. everything, so far seems to work as well. although i havent driven it yet, all the systems seem to work good as well.

so, like i said earlier for the price i couldn't pass it up.... it cost me Free.99. and i towed it home with my jeep on a trailer. i will post some pics in the next few days and maybe even a build thread as i work some kinks out of it.

well i have thinned the collection.... it sucks but i have to do it. i no longer have the sportruck, the 84 GTI, scrapped the cabriolet and gave away the ramcharger. the next one to go is our 85 caprice wagon, most likely to the scrap yard as well. it sucks but its gotta go.

oh and here is the BMW. i figured i should put it up. i have been driving it for the last month or so. it seems to be working pretty good. the only issue is i have a coolant leak SOMEWHERE that i cant find. i'll figure it out eventually but for now i just keep adding coolant and bleeding the system. all takes time and $$ neither of which i have much of right now. so without further waiting......

PEEKSURES!!!!

when i picked it up...


after new fogs but before the suspension....


and a few night shots after the suspension was done.

Man oh man...I just knew it...Datty folks seem to have a soft spot for VW's. It's evident on cultwagen, vortex, the local VW club forums and on and on. I've got a few split-window type two's, and a '64 bug. In fact--speaking about too many vehicles, I just got a notice from my City's police department ordinance enforcement division, saying I need to get a couple of them off the street since they have expired tags. That's fine & dandy, I need to do that anyway, so the notification kickstarted me off my lazy butt when I should have done that a long time ago. It helps when my next door neighbor says it's okay to park one or two of my rigs in his driveway since his job takes him out of town for good long stretches at a time.

old enuf to leak and clog up at the same time
