    Jealousy, thy name is $400 Corrado. We've scoured our community and found this gem of a thread for this week's Forum Friday. Is it Corrado week on VWvortex? Not really, we just happened to find two great cars to bring to you. On Monday we highlighted a 39,000 mile 1994 Corrado SLC that was on...

    It's finally Friday. If you've been sheltering-in-place all this week like we have, then you're probably looking for something, anything, to take your mind off of...well, you know. So here's a great diversion: something from a much more innocent time. This week we've got a time-capsule Mk1...

    Vinyl is in, and we’re not talking about tight pants or the way records have suddenly pulled a righteous comeback.

    Unicorns do exist. We know because user ray_futbol just published the build sheet for his latest tuned VW . It’s a 4wd wagon with a 6-speed manual in a completely adult, yet still alluring shade of green. And that’s just how it came from the factory — but don’t worry, it’s far from stock...

    Are you in the market for a new project car? Looking for something to wrench on? Well, our latest Ratty Rescue may be just the car for you. This 1990 Jetta coupe needs a few things, one of which is a new home. Another is something just as important: a drivetrain. The MK2 Jetta is a standout in...

    Designs don’t tend to last long in the world of cars, so models with staying power deserve credit. People think of the Mustang and 911 as timeless designs, but the original people’s car predates both. Sure, it took a little hiatus, but the car-buying public has responded well to the new Beetle...

    Sometimes going big isn’t the best course of action. Sometimes it’s better to have a clear vision and execute it effectively, even if that means being reasonable. That’s because sometimes the result turns out to be this 1989 Jetta Coupe . Being sold by forum user jaysvw in Arizona, you could...

    The Volkswagen CC is kind of an odd car. It looks like a standard, if attractive, executive German sedan, but most of the people who are in the market for something like that are mostly looking to impress their neighbors. So a car as classically handsome as this has always been too good for the...

    The words “shooting” and “brake” are sure to cause tumescence in the car world these days. That’s partly because these sports-cars-cum-wagons are so rarely seen, and partly because they look so good. Naturally, there’s excitement every time one of these rarities pops its head up, and today...

    It was an estate sale, but we’ve all had the dream. You’re driving down a country lane when a flash of color from inside a barn catches your eye. Or walking down the street when the old widow three doors down opens the garage. We all want to find the perfect car that no one’s thought about in...

    Of all the Volkswagens ever made, few water-cooled cars will ever reach the must-have factor of Mk3 Golf Harlequin models.  Originally constructed at the Volkswagen factory by using the body panels from four different cars, the Harlequins were like nothing else produced before or since.  And...

    Over the years, the builds documented on our forums have varied from the relatively tame suspension and wheels variety to the more ambitious sky-is-the-limit and time is not a factor type.  With that in mind, I'd like to direct your attention to the Volkswagen Lounge subform. After rolling...
