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...
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.

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.
