I am now the proud owner of an '82 diesel rabbit with 220+K miles, runs
beautifully.  The previous owner bought it new, almost exactly 20 years
ago.  It's not all that rusty, surprisingly enough -- Salt Lake is aptly
named, and tends to eat cars.  It needs a bit of maintenance -- the
owners youngest son was doing all the repairs on it for a while and they
all need to be re-done -- but basically it's in fantastic shape.

It was advertised as needing brake work, plus it "had sat for a couple
months and won't start".  Turned out it needed a prime, started right
up.  Replaced the driver-side front caliper and it's ready to go.

I usually find myself buying project-from-hell vehicles and then
regretting it, so this one looks like it might be a pleasant change!
