Hi all,

I just picked up my first caddy. It's a 1980 with a '85 jetta engine and 5-spd. The guy was going to donate it, but he let me have it instead. It doesn't run right now, but is supposily needs a new fuel pump and a few electrical connections. I'm not new to vw's, as I have a EMPI Imp dunebuggy from the 70's that I am also working on. My name is Jamie, and I'm from central MD. Nice to meet you all.

Welcome Jamie. I'm a brit, new to all this state banter, but I reckon that MD is Maryland?
Is that the best place in the states?????
Good deal on the caddy mate, welcome.

I hope so too. I bet the engine won't take too much to fix. It's the body that needs attention. The previous owner painted it with rustoleum gray paint with a paint brush! It also needs new rocker panels under the doors, and new doors. I am looking to put a cabby frontend on it, and an updated dash. Do the cabby fronts just bolt right up? What dashes fit in this thing? Thanks!
