Thanks. I've actualy have two caddys. I'll get a pick posted. Its in a sad shape...RUST. I'm not sure what I'm going to do with it. I bought it a month ago for $400 it came with a nice tail gate.. just a little surface rust. Heres my daily (pig) driver. This is why I need a caddy :cheers: she drinks alot of petral :D

WOW! Nice collection of A1s!

So what's your plans for the new caddy? Obviously you know how to make an A1 look very nice! :)

Tell us more about the GTI and Jetta too...

Thanks. I'm thinking of keeping the caddy stock for now....just put some rims and suspention kit on it. It has 95 thousand original miles and its all working. I want to make a crew cab caddy but I'm not going to do it to the one in the pic above.
My gti was bought last year from Burbank Cali. I'll list spec below. The jetta was a daily driver/ construction car :( . After abusing it for a couple of years... hauling wood to job sites. I told her(gli) I'd restore her. :music:
So I panted her and that where she lies. I'm stuck on replacing my fuel and brake lines. I can't locate the fittings so that I can run new lines.
