A scam? Nope.

A catch? Sorta.

Read this, especially the bottom third:

I've not found anyone that wants to buy it, and I've come to the realization that I'll neither pay to have it towed up to Connecticut nor will I spend the money to refurb it. Been there, done that. I miss it, it pisses me off that it's there and in that condition, but that's reality. I just finished the Nissan NX2000 SR20VE project, now I'm thinking there's a mid-80's Porsche 911 project in my future...

Anyway, what's the "sorta catch"? It's in Opelousas, LA and it's as-is, where-is. What you see in that link is all I've got, all I know, and there's no way I'll be able to get more info for you. And, to be fair to the guy who's had that thing in his yard for a couple years, he asks for $200 in storage costs, which I suspect would be negotiable (I'm sure he wants to get rid of it.) You agree to move on this and I'll give you the guy's contact info and you can work it out. My dad has the clear title which I will coordinate with him to get to you.

You want it? Go get it. But if you're not serious, please don't waste my time...?

It hurts to see the 2010 pics after seeing how nice it once was Greg.

I don't even know that guy, but what freaking jerk! As an owner of Rabbit GTIs for eight years and multiple hundreds of thousands of miles, I can say that.

Must resist the urge to drag home another Rabbit to my home for wayward VW's. Must resist the urge already have several not running Rabbits here to deal with.
