      Well this may or may not get much traction here since it seems the Denver Vortex does not have a lot of MK1 traffic but...

      I build a lot of diesel rabbits every year and I am looking for someone who wants to get into it and learn the trade of diesel mechanic/rabbit restore. I would want someone with basic mechanic skills and a general understanding of how an engine works, but this stuff ain't rock science. It is not my main business, just my side hussle and I work out of the back of a fairly good size garage space in the back of my commercial building.

      For now I am not looking to pay someone but would offer a free caddy or car to anyone who wants to put in the hours and help me rebuild these gems and get them back on the road. Certainly you could use my space and we could partner up down the road to get more things in and out of the shop. I know where a good amount of pickups and cars are hiding around the western part of the US and I buy and sell stuff every few weeks.

      Current inventory of projects
      82 lago blue pickup
      81 marron pickup
      81 dasher 4 door
      83 4 door rabbit
      78 rabbit 2 door
      81 pickup 72V electric
      80 pickup Mountain Green 1.9 MTDI

      In route over the next few weeks
      81 tan pickup
      81 tan pickup
      79 4 door white
      79 4 door lipstick red interior
      86 golf

      All diesel

      I don't think I would be a worthy apprentice, but I'm new to CO and would love to come check out some of your projects and cars you have up for sale.

      When are you open? I’d be curious to swing by and check it out. Maybe buy a project off you...

      I will kick this back to the top. Winter is when I do most of my VW work. If you have a diesel project and need help or want to help me build engines and flip MKI's then PM me.

      Heated shop, room for 3 projects, decent side hustle. It's a plus if you have a truck and trailer of your own.

      If you are pumped on Ebay listings I have LOTS of stuff that could be listed.

      Cheers,
      Russ
