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...

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.
