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 works!) 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...

This is a walk around after installing a new injection pump and injectors to get it running. Thanks to Butch the p.o. for his help and Rabbit Ron in Cali for some necessary redirection as I initially had the pump 180 out. Looking forward to tooling on this car in the future.
