      No longer for sale. Decided to keep

      Since I only drove this car 5 times last year, and just found another of my "dream cars" that I have been searching a number of years for.... I've decided to put this out there for sale for a couple weeks and see if I can find it a new owner.

      Below are 3 "build threads" of things that I've done to this car. You can get a feel for everything that has been done to the car, and the quality and quantity of work that was done.

      Custom grill
      Rear bumper shortened 5 inches

      Info, Pics and Price:

      First of all I am trying to contact the previous owner and give him the first chance at buying this car since I've been in contact with him periodically over the years since I got the car. If I don't hear back from him by end of day Monday 4/9/12 then the car is up for grabs.

      Pic from this year (shows re-finished wheels)


      From last year

      So here's basically how I would describe the car as a whole.
      Although there is a lot of customization, the car behaves like a normal car (which is pretty rare for a customized car). It idles like it should, has great power with the supercharger, runs awesome on freeway with the diesel 5th gear. I have about $3500 worth of receipts, another $1500 worth of parts and other cars that I used to build this car... and hundreds of hours into just the motor. All the mechanicals like brakes, wheel bearings, brake lines, battery, you name it, it's new or rebuilt in the past couple years.
      In 2010 I used this car as my primary commuter car from April to November. Maybe put on 25,000 miles that year. Odometer is at 167K, Engine has about 40K on it since it was all gone through.

      Interior is really nice. Seats great, carpet great, dash has a few cracks but most all of them do. I put the stock radio back in the car after the aftermarket unit stopped working.

      Exterior is all the original paint. Still shines- looks great. Car does have a few dings, and two small rust spots about the size of a pencil eraser. One on passenger door, one by driver rear quarter window. Other than that, underbody, fender wells, etc, all clean. I never drove this car in the winter. period. I probably have a couple hundred hours into body work as well.

      I have run this car at the dragstrip 2 times just to see the times, and best time was a 14.2. Cant remember a MPH. Car handles very nice. I have used this car to lead our local fall cruise, the car easily can outhandle and out accelerate most of the newer VW's unless they're really modified.

      I have a wall full of trophies that I've won with this car if that is your thing. It's a nice car.

      Price is $5500 firm. Don't bother to offer less, I won't even answer the PM. Only reason I am selling is because I found another car that I want more.

      NO TRADES.... really... NO TRADES... really... don't PM, or post pictures of cars you would like to trade.. seriously.

      Local Milwaukee folks all know me. I was president of local VW club for awhile. This is a a good clean car. Will ask others who have seen it to post up here and vouch for it.

      I have a ton more pictures, and a ton more information.... Just ask if you have questions.

      Car is just as described. One very clean, well built Rocco. Sad to see it for sale.

      Interested in what muscle car you are after....

      Beautiful and meticulously created custom car. It, and MeanVW, have been an inspiration to me.

      Whoever picks this up will have miles of smiles riding this beauty. They should also be prepared to accept loads of compliments and questions wherever they roam.

      Thank you x4.

      Answers to questions received so far:
      -does it need any work?
      My answer to that is that it's due for an oil change and that will be done this weekend. Car always run on mobile 1 synthetic. I am also doing spark plugs, cap and rotor this weekend. No running issues, just have parts and is due.
      I've tried to preserve original paint, bumpers and hatch were modified and resprayed. Rest of car is original paint. Looks good, but has imperfections that pretty much are only noticeable to someone who spends hours hand waxing the car.
      I was planning on updating suspension this year. Has 3 year old shocks, no issues, just was the next thing on the list to upgrade that I didn't get to.

      Any illegal modifications?
      Does not have front license plate bracket installed, and does not have side mirrors installed. I have the parts that will come with the car.
      Exhaust has a 2-3 year old downpipe/cat. Emissions should be all good for most states but California that I know of. Only reason I say California is that I have considered moving back there, and the motor is so obviously modified that I don't think CARB would pass it.

      As the previous owner of the car. Its awesome, and Jeff did everything to make it more awesome. I wish I had the garage space for this car.

      Correct. No a/c. No room for an a/c compressor.

      Listing on Craig's list today.
      Will probably reconsider selling it at all if I don't have a buyer by this weekend.

      New tires this year, have done all de-winterizing/ spring cleaning and checks.
      Car is "show ready"

      I think he actually turns his head and looks. It's not like a new car that has windows for show that you can't really see out of.

      These are the filler panels that I fabricated to delete the mirrors. They mount just as the mirrors did, with a seal and 3 screws. I do have the mirrors that come with the car. Maybe 15 minutes a side to put it back to stock.

      Car is really quick, so no real need for concern about what is behind you
      Made me think of the mirrors I had on my old GLI
