    So you're looking for a rare car? First-gen Sciroccos are getting to be pretty rare. Throw a custom powerplant and all-wheel-drive system in it and you've got perhaps the rarest 'Rocco around. But maybe the rising auction price is out of your reach; we've also found a project car to make your...

    Donut Media is taking on the Golf R (and since the history of that would be hard to stretch out into 20 minute video, the history of every AWD Golf). So get up to speed on AWD Golfs with Up to Speed!

    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...

    Building exhausts since 1955 in the outskirts of the historic walled city of Mantova, Italy, Supersprint have one of the most interesting back stories in the business, which positively oozes Italian flair. Nestled in the north Italian countryside, situated equidistantly between the fashion...

    What happens when you take a 1990 Corrado G60 sports coupe, add an upgraded supercharger, a ton of engine internals, a Synchro all-wheel-drive system, and a (gulp) $4500 raised suspension? You get a huge project. An unfinished project. You get the hope of someday driving a rip-roaring race car...

    While a Jetta Syncro was briefly sold in Europe, this ain’t one of them. No, this Jetta was made by one of those enterprising Americans who decided that their lot wasn’t good enough and made some sweet, sweet swaps. With the Syncro all-wheel-drive system from a Canadian Passat—cleaned...

    Trends follow a pretty set cycle: something is new, it gathers a following, people latch onto it, nearly everyone gets one, and eventually it becomes yesterday's news and it blends into the background. With today's SUV craze, insanely modified trucks are quickly moving from weekend toys to...

    I’m normally not a fan of four-wheel-drive. As a rule, I think it’s a way for automakers to frighten people into buying cars that are heavier and no more capable. Today, though, that all goes out the window. That’s because today’s find of the day is this 1990 Golf Country that’s being sold in...

    The recent news that Volkswagen is pondering an all-wheel-drive Golf for U.S. customers surprised many. “All-wheel drive is now part of the Volkswagen DNA,” commented Dr. Hendrik Muth of Volkswagen at the U.S. launch of the Alltrack. That means Volkswagen will be taking on Subaru, the...

    By the 1980s the Golf was a massive success and every major manufacturer was trying to copy it. This was no time to sit on laurels, so Volkswagen started work on the Mk2. Despite a sensible design direction that didn't stray too far from the foundations that the Mk1 had lain, Volkswagen decided...

    Ennepetal - The VW transporter T3 (T25) was the last generation with a rear engine but also the first with optional four-wheel drive. It was practically inevitable that it would achieve cult status. The “syncro” variant, which is in great demand today, found its way into the options list 30...

    Interesting swaps seem to be a staple of our "Find of the Day" features, and this certainly fits the bill. Back in 2010, Canada's Shift Autosport took a run-of-the mill MK3 Jetta, and swap in an AWP code 1.8T motor, then add the syncro system from a Passat for good measure. With the 1.8T...

    No need for foreplay on this one, so let's just cut to the chase.  This GTI has got to be insane. With a turbocharged VR6 under the hood with 25 pounds of boost, and with a rear subframe fabricated to accept a syncro all-wheel-drive system, we can only imagine what the driving experience...

    When it was originally introduced, the T3 Vanagon had huge shoes to fill.  The outgoing model was a cultural icon, after all.  Volkswagen unveiled the T3 in 1979, and while not a pretty as the T2 models, it still sold quite well and remained on sale for 23 years.  During that time, different...

    This Find of the Day comes to us via a recent Craigslist binge.  While stumbling around the site we found this 1992 Volkswagen Passat G60 Syncro, complete with period-correct Hella quad round headlights.  Finished in Steel Blue, the Canadian-import car surprisingly does not appear to have any...

    Today's Find of the Day comes to us directly from our own Marketplace, and it's a pretty good one if we do say so ourselves.  The end result of a build lasting roughly 5 years and chronicled on our forums , this Corrado had its G60 removed in favor for an AWP-code 1.8T, which was then...

    The question of "what if?" seems to get tossed around a lot by enthusiasts. The question generally leads to swapping in a different engine, transmission or even changing which wheels the power goes to, and we've seen our fair share of them done to varying degrees.  Heck, we even did it ourselves...
