View Full Version : El Caddy

Howdy all...after wanting a Caddy since about 1990 I finally did the deed and got one last weekend. It's a 1983 gas model and in great condition. I ditched the stock 13s for a set 16" BBS RXs I had in the garage. Don't plan to do much else right away other than suspension...going low...and slow for now.

I've been driving VW's since I got my first one in 1988...a 1987 GTI 16V that is now undergoing a VR6 swap and repaint in Audi Nimbus Grey. Also have had a '90 Jetta GLI, '92 Passat wagon (wifes car for 10 years and 230,000 miles), '96 GTI VR6...currently have '02 GTI 337 and '03 Passat GLS.

So you can see I'm VW all the way...glad to be a member of VWCADDY.com

And here it is...El Caddy
