I finally traded - more or less - my 1982 VW Rabbit Diesel 5M Pickup for a new VW TDI JSW 6M. Little trucklet had 300,000 original engine miles. Restoration dude painted & upholstered it - straightened some dents, little things here and there. He got - even with 300000 odometer reading - twelve grand for it. JSW runs good. Per Fuelly.com the average for 12,500 miles calculated out to 44.6 No complaints from this sailor ez

    Getting this far requires gumption, something you have in spades.

    Settled in, saw the sights, learned the territory, and most importantly: gave back.
