We hit the track with Flyin' Miata's latest power adder.
In this corner
From Germany, the People's Car Kleinlieferwagen. or as we have come to know it.
VW Rabbit Truck
In this corner, wearing the Pentastar/Ram. Sporting the largest trunk ever placed on a production Omni.
The Dodge Rampage/Plymouth Scamp!
Rabbit diesel. Done!
OP votes VW for one reason only
you can get a diesel in the rabbit truck. That's so cool
Here is to the mini Ranchero/El Camino!
Grew up riding in my dads rampage (until it was t-boned) and I vote for the VW because it's cooler. It just is.
it's a draw for me, I luv em both
I vote for neither.
I'm voting Rampage hands down.
SWMBO votes "neither."
There was a pic of a Rabbit pick up floating around that was black, lowered, with larger 16"-17" chromed replica snowflakes.

I agree with the female.
Rabbit for me, this was my poor example. 8v GTI engine swapped in.
Rampage. It just looks better (especially in Shelby trim) and it is rated for 1000lbs in the bed, unlike the El Camino of the same time period. So it's a useful trucklette, unlike the slower than slow diesel Wabbit.
I vote for the rabbit pickup too... they are just cool little trucklets
Rabbit, still on the look out for a good Rabbit truck.

That is one of the dorkiest pieces of awesomeness I have ever seen. I have to vote Rampage.
Volkwagen Rabbit Pickup
Rampage! I've actually only seen one on the road since I can remember...
Rampage! Cause I delivered pizzas in one for a while...
I vote with my money, again; nine times. Caddy is awesome.
Otoh, I keep my eyes open for a scamp.
If you are looking for economy, the diesel rabbit. If you are looking for something that actually looks cool, Rampage. If you are looking for something to hop-up (no pun intended), Rampage.

+1000. I would LOVE to get one of these and do a greasecar conversion on it.
Now this is tougher...
I have enough parts around to keep a Rampage on the road for years.. and a stupid fast rampage would be very easy to build cheap... and in the SHelby Charger exterior stuff they really look awesome..
But a diesel.. in a VW... hummmm... this is nothing like the clear cut omni/gti thing...
The deciding factor is the VW's rust worse than rusty rampages... and command a premium for rusty junk party because the diesel is cool.. but mostly because so many VW guys are even more idiotic than Turbo mopar idiots..
