The Volkswagen Thread
« on: Apr 05, 2009, 03:33:36 »
I've sort of noticed a good number of VW enthusiasts on this website, so I thought that maybe we should have our own thread.  Personally, Volkswagens have always been my number one passion, since I was brought home from the hospital in a Rabbit.

I'll start with the families collection.

Here's my daily driving '86 Scirocco:


And my (VW-Porsche) 914 project... that's been going on since I was 14 ::)


And the new addition, I'm flying out to Seattle next week to drive it back.  An original yellow 1975 Scirocco.  I've never actually seen one of these that hasn't disintegrated.


The Porsche (and hopefully the yellow car) share a garage with my dad's VWs.  First off, his '57 Bug that he ground-up restored.


And his next (very long-term) project 65 Double Cab Microbus.


Hell, even my Ma drives this one :P





So post up your VWs!  Aircooled, watercooled, it doesn't matter.  They're all good!

Had lots of VW's before migrating to Ingolstadt.

This one was my favorite.



92 GTI.   Started life as a bone stock 8V, then a supercharged 8V, then a supercharged 16V and finally a turbo 16V.

Yukon Yellow was a '67 convertable only color.  The car sat only an inch an a half off of the ground. Compared to the stock '67 (4x4)

rawfish - My favorite color combo, some day I'll have that in a 356.

Here is my other project:


I'm much further than this, but it's a pic I have on hand. Cut 6 inches out of the roof, had to widen the roof by about 3 inches, and formed the back into a little cab. Also enclosed the back with a false floor and wall behind the front seats, and various other things.
