Yeah, given how clean the rest of your car is, the sunroof must be what killed the floorpans. I've also seen them leak at the base of the windscreen, but that usually takes out the electrics before...

Fair enough. I actually can't argue with you. I sold my last Rabbit, an '83 4dr L gasser 4spd in 2001, and have regretted it. Before that, I had the '79 2dr auto (rusted to nothing), an 81 2dr 4 spd...

Quite true. Diesels are usually chewed up and spit out. And STILL sell for $4k+ if not rusty.

I do like your black interior, too. My '79 was the first of the Westmoreland cars. Yes, they had the...

I'll have to get caught up on it. I followed it in the beginning. Then I got the house, which kept me busy up until now. Then my rental house had a pipe burst, and..... Well I have excuses for days....

Sorry, no trades as I already have the larger car.

I'm open to offers as stated in the listing. I've already turned down $5,000 from an in-person local buyer, so figure between that, and $5,900.

Awesome. I've got 151,000 on mine (and a bit more than 115hp, too). Two years of daily driver use, and I still love it. The wheels you want are the R81 Imola, often referred to as "holies"'or...
