    The body is an Inca Brown Metallic - LE8Y - color, and is a rare early Westy variant. Based on the history given to me with the truck and conversation with the previous owner, this truck lived most of it's life in the western united states, until I got it in 2013 and brought to Ohio, and has...

    My first post here! I have a 1982 VW Caddy pickup that I've had about 15 years and she's treated me very well. Other than oil changes, I've done nothing for the last 3 years and it's run great. Last year, upon starting it up, I would briefly hear a sound similar to a "shaking slinky" sound...

  5. Golf I/Jetta I Parts
    Picked up a pair of these old school Ventshades last week and need to move them on to someone that needs them. They’re made of Lexan, not stainless like most out there. I can’t recall ever seeing a set before on a car, never mind new in the package. There’s a set on eBay in much nicer packaging...

    It being October, we were anticipating something more along the lines of Lazerhawk’s seminal album, Redline. A car driven by the angry ghost of a jilted lover. But this Caddy is pretty cool, too. The Caddy is Jamie Orr’s and it is likely the only late model Caddy in the USA. That’s because...

    With all the social distancing going on, it might be nice to have a vacation where social distancing feels normal. Enter: the Mini-Camper. The vehicle is based on the Caddy, but VW remembered it was German and became dissatisfied with the lack of literalness of the previous name, Caddy Beach...

    Volkswagen Commercial has gone to the dogs. Police dogs, that is. The latest Caddy is designed to make life easier for Rover on duty. Earlier this year in England and Wales, a new law was passed that made causing unnecessary suffering to a service animal a crime. It's named for Finn, a police...

    Our latest Find of the Day is a tiny trucklet with a big heart. This MK1 Volkswagen Caddy can be the perfect addition to your garage. By modern standards, the Volkswagen Pickup, as it was officially named, is an odd vehicle. Small trucks were all the rage in the early 80s, and VW engineers...

    As country singers have been saying for years, there’s something about a truck. The Rabbit pick up is just one more chapter in the story of Volkswagen’s star-crossed relationship with America. First built at the ill-fated Westmoreland Assembly plant, the Rabbit Pickup—later Caddy—was how...

    While in Germany for the Beetle Sunshine Tour, I managed to sneak away from the press area and walk among the Germans of the northern port town of Travemünde. Perhaps unsurprisingly, German people drive a lot of German cars. As previously noted, Wolfsburg is somewhat surreally Volkswagen...

    Why, is a perfectly good question to ask when confronted with a new project. For instance, if you were to say to yourself, “I’m gonna turn my Beetle into a pick up,” first asking yourself “why,” would not only be acceptable, but advisable. This Californian did not , and then went ahead and...
