Happy Easter: 1981 Volkswagen Rabbit Caddy

If you causally mention you have a Volkswagen Caddy, a normal person would assume you had some sort of golf sponsorship...but a not-so-normal person will ohh and ahh for they know how special VW's front-drive water-cooled leisure activity vehicle (LAV...not kidding...that's an actual marketing term).  When I saw the pictures, I was surprised to see snow in Oregon in mid April...until I scrolled down a bit to find the car is located in Alberta, but offered in US dollars on 'Murican ebay. Find this 1981 Volkswagen Rabbit Caddy here on eBay bidding for $4,150 in Sylvan Lake, Alberta, Canada with a few hours to go. Tip from Jim.

  1. Interesting vehicle and I can't see any mention of AC and colour? It looks pick to me? anyone interested in the US, please make sure that the dealer will take it over the border and get it registered there for you. With Corona the borders are not open right now unless you are in an 18-wheeler. I have towed many vehicles (RV's & boats) and would not choose as my first choice, I like torque when towing.

  2. I didn’t know these were made with gasoline engines. I have only seen diesels for 40 years.
