Craftsman also makes a breaker bar/1/2" rachet combination that's
great for breaking things loose and then fliping the head over and
using the bar as a "speeder wrench".  

I had a similar issue with the oil filter on an '84 GTi although the
filter (being shorter) remained mostly intact.  I ended up using a
strap-type filter wrench and the aforementioned breaker bar/1/2"
rachet combo and a 3' helper bar to get the damn thing loose.
