1981 VW Rabbit diesel 4 speed 0-60 with a straight pipe. Shot outside Chilton, WI
Poor quality vid - sorry...
1981 Volkswagon Rabbit diesel 0 - 60 from a dead stop. I wasn't really
giving her the berries, just wanted a quick video.
I bought this car 6 months ago for a good fuel milage car. It needed brake
lines, and I never really had the ambition to change them until the other
day. I've been driving this car for two weeks now and absolutly love it.
As a matter of fact, I prefer to drive this over my Cadillac Fleetwood. In
the two weeks of driving it (about 15 miles a day), I never knew if the
fuel guage worked because it never moved off 1/3 tank. So just before
shooting this vid, I filled it up. 6.0 gallons! (And yes, the guage
The only reason it is so loud, it there is absolutly no muffler. I do have
one, but it boils down to the ambition thing.... Someday - probly not
today. Tomorrow doesnt look good either...
1979 Rabbit 1.5 liter Diesel 4 speed
Who remembers these? Volkswagen introduced the diesel powered Rabbit here
in America in 1978 or 1979..... as I remember.... as I was only 11-12 years
old. They were NOT so popular. Stinky, noisy, and underpowered were the
comments I heard. They had a following, but 'normal' people drove big
Amercan Iron. haha. Now those 'odd' people are the cool people, just ahead
of thier time. And...now these old stinky diesels are cool. This particular
car belongs to one of my best customers This Rabbit, is a one owner, daily
driven, all original 1979 Rabbit 1.5 diesel with roughly 40 hp and 50 ft
lbs torque. You just don't see these anymore.
1981 VW Rabbit Diesel LS Mk1 low 37,000 miles
Here is my 1981 VW Rabbit Diesel LS with about 37,000 original miles. My
dad purchased it from the original owners daughter about 8 years ago. The
original owner was an Army Colonel and lived on an army base. He was
usually chauffeured around the base, and only drove the car when he was on
leave. The car is not perfect, but is an honest original example, with
original paint and interior.

turbo diesel rabbit pickup project start to finish
Buy a bigger one and give the Arabic countries that hate us all your
money.....NOT. Have fun making somthing that gets incrediable MPG and still
go fast. 37-45 mpg tuned to go pretty fast. If you want to save even more
money you can easily adjust the fuel screw and get over 50. and go 65-70
with the A/c blowing cold.
Compound Turbo DIESEL Rat Rod - Got Smoke?
http://www.1320video.com/store It's definitely not fast yet, but how much
of a badass would you feel like driving a rat rod with a GIANT turbo hanging out the windshield? Then, when you
stab the gas, there's nothing but thick smoke out of your (non-existent)
rear view mirror! Pretty big badass would be the correct answer!

How To Travel in a VW VAN~ 2014 ~Part 3 Equipment Intro
My first Westfalia trip was in 1985. Over the years you kinda learn what is
Equipment Intro, regarding useful gear, some old, and some new. Part 1 for
Spring is the best time to travel, and preparing now will help towards a
Vornado Heater 750-1500 Watts, Rival Crock-Ette Pot 75 watts, Chicago
Electric Inverter 750Watts (1500-peak), Energizer Value NiMH Charger 110V,
Griswold # 3 Frying Pan, Beatrice # 33 Summer Stove (Sad Iron Cook Stove),
Realistic AM/FM 9V Radio,
Coleman Peak 1 model 400 (white fuel only) This van is a diesel, so that is
fine. Newer models can also burn diesel fuel or gasoline, or all 3 fuels
with a generator swap kit they include. You decide. Butane Stoves are
another idea for some people. In cold weather (not so-good). Coleman fuel
and Lamp Oil might be better sometimes.
