The VW Pickup Lives! We Didn't Know!

When we were knee-high to a platypus, our dad's co-worker had a VW Rabbit pickup. We thought it was badass. His son later totally freaked out on a totally hot friend of ours when she married the raddest guy around. Of course, we'd made out with said totally hot friend thereby satiating our desires and were happy to see her marry such a rad guy and subsequently have rad children. But this guy harbored a secret crush and it got the best of him. And it's kinda sad, because we had a lot of fun with said freakout artist playing with a Mork From Ork egg when we were supposed to be napping at daycare. But VW, amazingly, is still making the pickup, and it's for sale in South Africa. Because, well, they're apparently just entering the 1980s, too. [Thanks to Mattias for the tip.]

here's my 81 rabbit pickup i drive as a daily while i finsh my 83 GTI project..…

have been itching to get a 06 rabbit as a daily instead, but i don't have the heart to trade this little pickup in. currently has a 1.8 GTI motor and 5 speed. is a blast to drive, gets close to 30mpg, and easily passes smog in California. no heater or working radio, but who needs those with the tone of a Techtonics exhaust system.
