      Hmm, and you have a pic of your car in the same frame with Banned Wagon's lowmobile, which instantly adds some cred around here. :)

      I've had my valve bypassed for a couple of years now, haven't crashed and burned going over a railroad track or anything yet. Of course, your experiences may vary, up to and including fiery Fox...

      You are correct, sir. I spent some time beating my head against this on Saturday and I think the fan motor itself has died. I opened up the air box under the rain tray (gawd I hate those stupid...

      Ralphie, a dead spot would simply make it not start at all, at least until you whacked it with a hammer. Once the starter starts spinning, the dead spot won't do anything. My wagon has a similar...

      Hard to go wrong with any car in semi-decent driving condition for less than a grand, IMHO. This does sound like a good deal. The not-wanting-to-idle-when-warm is probably just a vacuum leak...

      Very nice indeed - that's all rare stuff. I have a couple of the switches, one set of the lights, and the little 'scoop' that goes on the fresh air inlet.

      I've successfully dealt with brazilianvw a couple of times. Just have to keep in mind that everything from there takes bloody forever - I think my sport springs took 2 months IIRC.
