There's one in my neighborhood, but not sure if this is it.

Saw this at an indy shop. Just 46,000 miles. They said they can't get fuel-related parts (CIS, presumably). Ran when parked after fuel-related service 9 years ago. Guessing it's an older person's toy, wonder if they'll sell it...

I wonder what they're having trouble getting. I've not had any issues tracking down CIS parts for my 8V 900 (yet). That Cabriolet is hot.

Yeah, I thought it was kinda odd that the tech said that. I'm not a huge VW fan but I had a girlfriend years ago who had a Cabriolet and it was a fun car. And this one does look especially good

It's a dually... Chevy S10?!?

 

A closer look showed it is using hub adapters. Presumably not factory, but looks like it was competently done.

I'm still not sure what one would build a dually S10 work truck for, though.

I always wanted to build a dually crewcab s10 (using blazer parts) with either a duramax or LS motor.

 

Picture unrelated. I only saw it for a split second, but I think it was a mk1 golf on a beetle tub with big tires. Looked awesome.

A Studebaker Avanti in pristine condition just drove past my office, no time for a pick.

They were fiberglass. Looked like he'd backed one into something. The truck looked like it had been built well but the current owner didn't have the funds to restore it.

I stopped to check directions on my way back home, and when I looked up I found every last remaining red buick reatta.

There was some sort of body kit on it, but a tasteful one at least.

At today's autocross there was a W8 manual-trans 4Motion Passat wagon. It made 3 runs and then broke.

Wasn't there a thread here where somebody had to cut down main bearings for another VAG motor because you can't get W8 parts anymore?

In reply to MadScientistMatt :

I would not doubt it.

Internal parts were NEVER available for Audi V8s.  They were officially service-as-assembly.  Given that the primary wear item was the engine block itself, I can kind of get that.  So, internal engine parts being unavailable for the W8 tracks with VWAG precedent.

When I was W8 hunting, the timing chains and cam timing actuators were still available.  Then they were discontinued.  I decided to stop W8 hunting.

Fortunately it didn't break an engine part. It broke a control arm or a subframe and an axle. Unless those are unique to the W8 cars
