    The eternal car-enthusiasts dilemma: create your own unique ride, or capitalize on someone else's hard work with a turn-key machine? Are you looking for a long-term project or want some instant gratification? Over the past few months, you probably noticed our Find Of The Day and Ratty Rescue...

    Did you like our recent Find Of The Day? Are you now looking for your own project Rabbit? Here's the perfect abandoned project that you can finish. This week's Ratty Rescue is a 1978 4-door Rabbit with quite a heart transplant. Ok, ok: this isn't a turbocharged MK1 like this week's FOTD. But...

    This is turning out to be a colorful week. Earlier we had a Mulberry GTI VR6 , and today we bring a Ginster Yellow GTI VR6. It's only a bit ratty, but it needs to be rescued. Don't wait to bid on it: the no reserve auction ends Wednesday at 2:45 PM EST! Proceeds from the sale go to...

    I have to say, I'm having trouble sharing this find with you, our loyal readers. Despite already having my own Scirocco 16V, this weary white coupe is calling to me. "If you love something, set it free" so, ladies and gentleman, I (begrudgingly) give you this week's Ratty Rescue: a $1,988 1988...

    While it's not yet Spring in North America, we've been all about sun and sand this week. By now you've probably seen Volkswagen's new I.D. BUGGY electric concept , our recent Model Rewind: Dune Buggy , and our Find Of The Day, a 16-valve powered Meyers Manx . Well if you're looking for your...

    If you liked this week's Find Of The Day, but a $15,000 Corrado show car is out of your reach, then today's Ratty Rescue should be right up your alley. And the starting bid on this 1992 Corrado SLC is only 10% of the ultimate Corrado's asking price. A bargain! This 'Rado has a lot going for...

    We've all been there, right? You really want a fun older car, but your other half can only picture a money pit parked in your driveway. Do we have the car for you: this week's Ratty Rescue is just $800. Send your loved one the link to the $35,000 Cabriolet to show what this car could be worth...

    We all want to be Jamie Orr , right? Travel the world and visit places like Supersprint Exhaust in Mantova, Italy , tour the super-secret VW car collection in Wolfsburg, Germany , and build a brand-new car completely from the ground up . But one of the most Jamie-est of Jamie things Jamie...

    If you liked this week's Find Of The Day , but lack the coin for that widebody GTI, why not make your own? This week's Ratty Rescue may be the lowest priced MK7 GTI on the market. The four-figure fare frees up cash for mods, like a Rocket Bunny kit. Let's get this out of the way right up...

    Sometimes we stumble on the weirdest things. Today's Ratty Rescue is a little out there. It's kind of like those bizarre animal friends you see all over the internet. You know the ones: polar bear plays with huskies,[/URL] or a and a baby rhinoceros[/URL] . This is kind of an automotive...

    With almost 2,000 shares on Facebook, it looks like you liked (pun intended) this week's Find Of The Day . That 1990 GTI had a torquey VR6 engine, a manual transmission, and all-wheel-drive tucked inside a beautifully restored body. We're betting that car won't be available for long. So if...

    There's a new Passat waiting in the wings, so this week's Ratty Rescue is from Volkswagen's midsize sedan's glory days. This 2004 wagon is a bit special, and a (little) bit rusty. Bring it home and patch that cancer before eats holes in the body. Talk to any wagon lover, and within five minutes...

    This week we're all about Volkswagen's hot hatch, so our Ratty Rescue is a not-too-terrible 2004 GTI. If you liked our recent Find Of The Day , well sorry, this one's totally different (we couldn't find a rough Anniversary Edition). But if you're in the market for a cheap GTI, this one fits the...

    While we wait impatiently for the production version of the I.D. Buzz Cargo , here's a little something to get your (gas) motor running: a 1959 Type 2 Panel Van. It's a little rough around the edges, which is perfect for a Ratty Rescue. As we covered in our recent Find Of The Day , classic...

    What constitutes a VWVortex Ratty Rescue? It can be a number of things: a rare model in rough condition, a popular model in need of a top-to-bottom restoration, or in the case of this 2012 Jetta GLI, a decent car at a low price. If you like the Vader-in-training GLI we featured on Monday...

    If you liked this week's Find Of The Day; a MK2 GTI stuffed full of power, then today's Ratty Rescue should be right up your alley. This '86 GTI has a horsepower enhancement but in the form of extra cylinders. And it's looking for a new owner. What can we say that hasn't been already said...

    Yes, mom, we know: "If you don't have anything nice to say..." So with that in mind, we'll focus only on the positive attributes of this week's Ratty Rescue. (Muttering to ourselves quietly: Nice things to say...nice things to say...) Well, to start, this Ratty Rescue is not at all ratty. With...

    Must. Not. Make. MTV references . Today's Ratty Rescue may have spent too much time in the sun, it's definitely been around the block a few times, and its star is definitely faded (so much for not making references to Snooki and her crew). If you liked our Find Of The Day earlier this week...

    Did you like this week's Find Of The Day ? If you're now on the lookout for your own power-packed Jetta, here's one to consider. This 2003 Jetta has a number of upgrades and an asking price less than half of that FOTD. And it even has a full interior. Bonus! The Jetta is Volkswagen's most...

    Looking for your own camper to travel the world in, #vanlife-style? This one might not get you to all the places you want to go like our recent Find Of The Day , but it will get you across the country. Take a look at our latest Ratty Rescue: a 2002 Volkswagen Eurovan Westfalia. Yes, we know...
