      65 bahama blue daily driver. Fresh 1641 (top end) heads, jugs, pistons, rods, tubes, seals, rings. Just out of break in. 6.5 INCH narrowed beam, 2.5 inch drop spindles, lowered 3 clicks in rear. Interior is pretty decent. No headliner, but it's blue and pretty up there. Paint is mostly o.g. This bug is pretty renowned down here in the southeast. I really really really absolutely hate to see it go. I don't want to get rid of it at all. But due to my finances and work situation I need something I can daily on 200 mile trips so I don't have to buy tires every month on the rear and just to have something more practical. Good sound system in here too. Best running bug I've ever owned. This being said, I'm obviously in no hurry to get rid of her but show me what you got. Price value? Turned down 4800 the other day. But really about 5k is my trade value. I don't have cash on top.

      Interested in most VW, just something that is reliable and catches my attention. Nothing ratty.

      Lots of pics on instagram @pabst_jew_ribbon

      Also before the rust question, there is surface rust but the pans are super solid, heater channels solid, this thing will melt your shoe in the winter. Worst rust is at the bottom of the driver A pillar but this is a solid bug. She won't let you down. Unless you're trying to drive off road. Thanks for looking ya'll, and if you don't want her, I guess I'll just keep her.

      4500 price drop, still looking to trade. About to move to out of state. Don't want to have to drive this car from GA to Texas but I guess if I have to I will ha. mk1 mk2 mk3 mk4, anything decently practical (and preferably still low)!
