Phenomena Science Cannot Explain Away: 1982 Volkswagen Rabbit Diesel Pickup



Okay, lemme get this straight: a Volkswagen pickup, a diesel Volkswagen pickup, a diesel Volkswagen pickup with a hundred and sixty-seven thousand miles on it is looking like it's going to crest the five-thousand-dollar mark. A freakish anomaly, or is this the market pointing out a gaping hole in the line-ups of every manufacturer currently selling automobiles in North America? When's that new Mini pickup due, anyway?

It is all about Toyota and Nissan in the 90s for baby pickups. That is if, like me, you can't afford Willy's Pickup Kaiser Jeep Street Rod.

The reason is the rarity in the states. I have been looking for one for a while. 50 to 55 mpg is looking really nice. Especially when My duallys only get about 10-15.

Getting Diesels is really hard, and the upsurge in interest of Biodiesel in the past two years is huge. It doesn't surprise me at all that something unique like this got big dollars.

now, if it runs is a whole additional story! :)
