They certainly are!  The '82 VDub wabbit p-up has the 1.7L i-4, and after you
jumpstart it, it runs like a fairly new engine (86k miles of plowing snow).
Needs lotsa new stuff, tho (heater core, head gasket, battery, alternator,
clutch stuff, shifter bushings, shocks, etc.).  Being hit 5 times (while
parked) hasn't helped it either.  That thing is amazing.
