Near Perfect VW Diesel Caddy Trapped in the San Jose Ca Yard!
Well, not a lot going on today..... Came across this almost pristine VW Caddy where it shouldn't be: At one of the yards in San Jose. One always wonders how cars like this end up here - could be towing due to tickets, registration, or good ol' gettin your drunk on........ or a lot of time it's the infamous not-passin-the-smog-test-idus that we Californians have to deal with....
But that's not the case with this clean ass truck - it's a Diesel! And sitting right next to it - another rabbit Diesel! Odd thing with this truck is that it looks to be freshly painted - and there was a box o' parts inside the cab... which was pretty clean itself. Looks like someone put a lot of work into it recently. Hmmmmm.... another mystery.
What I would do: drop the greasy french fry motor and slip in a nice fresh 16V or even a VR6....... NO SMOG TEST NEEDED! Add some GLI Recaros and your done!
Mark I parts are common here, gives me the urging to embark on (yet another) project.....
Until next time,
