  1. Golf I & Jetta I
    Hello all, figured I'd start a thread to document my recently acquired rotten banana. Here is my late Westy workhorse and her new sister. https://www.vwvortex.com/threads/late-westy-pickup-revival-quarantine-project.9499273/#post-115466064 more about the white truck. I recently drug this thing...
  2. Golf II & Jetta II
    Once again bored at work, so its storytime. I absolutely love this car with all my heart. She Is part of my very soul. The year was 2017 and I was only slightly younger and a lot stupider. I had just gotten away with taking over my mom's garage rebuilding an RX7 I found in the woods and figured...
  3. Golf I & Jetta I
    I'm bored at work today, so I guess I'll make a thread about what I did during quarantine while my brain turned into soup. Luckily, my mental health has recovered for the most part. My wallet has not (see my jetta build thread). Months before disaster, late in 2019, I picked up this little...
  4. Golf II & Jetta II
    Hello all, long time lurker, first time poster. I have learned so much from vortex over the years and across many projects, I figured I'd finally do a proper build thread. I have been wanting to build a decent daily for some time now. This was going to be the starting point. A complete...
  5. Golf II & Jetta II
    Hello folks, I'm Daniel from Romania and I own an 85" Mk2 Golf . Jumping to the subject, the car has CE1 harness and I wanna swap it to 1.9 TDI (AFN) and keep the car runing on CE1. I swapped the engine but the main problem is the engine wiring; i keep looking for answers but everyone swaps to...

    Here's another ratty ride in need of rescue by a VWVortex member. This ongoing series helps match our faithful readers to an interesting car in need of attention. And what we have today is one of the era's most iconic models: a 1984 GTI. After the oil crisis of the 1970s, there were few true...

    We all know the magic that was the MKI GTI. In the late '70s Volkswagen engineers took an everyday basic car, stuffed it with a hopped up engine, bolted on some suspension bits, swapped out chrome trim for something a little darker, and an entirely new class of car was born: the hot hatch...

    Today’s Find comes from the fantastically effective time-sink,  Bring a Trailer , but we were alerted to the sale by its owner, a Vortex user who bought this 1980 Rabbit diesel a year ago. Although it pains him to see the car go, he says he just doesn’t have space for it anymore. Even though...

    Volkswagen’s well recorded shift away from diesel engines toward electric ones might mark more than just a shift in propulsion. According to Burkhard Huhnke, senior vice president of e-mobility for the VW Group, the company is looking for lots of input from America. The Atlas was an early step...

    For all the many cars he’s driven Matt Farah had apparently, before a recent One Take, never driven a Mk1 Rabbit. Fortunately for us all, forum member Carlifornia was around to give him a ride in his largely stock car and you could have bought it. The baked  then smoked Rabbit was featured...

    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...

    To celebrate the birth of these United States we thought we’d tell the story of another powerful agent of democracy: the Golf GTI. Just like the forefathers, the Golf GTI gave power to the people and, little known fact, it was Benjamin Franklin’s love of golf that inspired the Volkswagen’s name...
