Anyone own one of these? Have a to tell about them? or where I can read any information on

These cars must be rare now, I have not one around in a very long

My dad has a black 2 door hatchback diesel, a 1980 I believe.

it has been sitting and rotting now for 10 years, I think it needed work, which never got

My father has a 1979 Dasher (original owner), I drove the car 1981-1984. I last saw the car in the mid-1990’s, White from the original still OEM wheels, had all trim and replaced. Glass — replacement. Trim around the same. It had been racking up the until about 1988 it was used more as a run-about it did not have A/C and he lived in AZ. Because OR not salt and the move to AZ, the car never had any at all. The only thing its age was the splined pattern in the OEM alloy

had some pitting where it is to clean.

The most amazing thing the car was I would get a solid 55 mpg on the highway, less than 45 mpg under any It had Goodyear Tiempo’s all around and through the worst snowstorms I ever been stupid to drive through — snow up to the hood in Central OR at 70 mph using the telephone poles for as to where the road went a lot of familiarity).

His had uncanny pull for a low hp car, and many of my Rabbit-owning commented on how much power it to pull vs. their gas-powered 500 miles plus on a tankful hurt, either.

One thing I recall was asking him why he did a upper-end rebuild at 50k when the car to run fine — valve head spec’d and machined, His answer was nothing was wrong it, but he felt it would last with valve work, at 50k intervals. Somewhere in Eastern the car is still doing duty, mint and proving his maintenance had some merit!

If your father still has rig intact, and you’re not interested in a project, I am sure you could an enthusiast out there who would buy it in any short of rusted hulk.

I love to find some of the 1979-1981 vintage car, but my and Jeeves cannot produce one decent pic for me!

I am amazed that a relatively clean-burning car could in 1979 and yet today we’re at Hybrids to get anything close to the (45-55 mpg). Granted are LEV’s, but do the math, how bad can a gallon of pollute when it takes the car 50

Something lost here I guess the inversion of diesel vs. gas (about 20 cents less then) has a lot to do with it — over 50% of all Volkswagens sold in were Diesel-powered.
