One Ate One Empty One Ate One

Post by Cambur Thu Jun 03, 2010 11:34 pm

well after a day of work getting the rabbit fixed and towed to its new owners place, i got to relax with the wind blowing in my hair, driving my new '73 181 home. although, It did give me a scare when it decided to die in the middle of the road. turns out it was idling so low that the fuel pump could not pump the fuel, but with a couple turns of the ratchet and some adjusting, it did just fine. it needs plenty of work, but atleast it is a running project. still has the gas heater (which i assume has been unhooked or is malfunctioning) the biggest problems are ones that i have to repair what the PO did (he was 87 yrs old, and decided a 2x4 was a good way to attach the tag to the car..along with the wooden windshield bumpstop...and the trailer turnsignals, he happened to be only 5ft tall, so therefore the rollbar is much to short and will need to be removed since i was banging my head on it the whole way! Laughing either way it runs and stops and is a blast to drive!

That's a great looking base to start with or rock it as is.

Nice! Aren't you glad you held out now! I wonder what it is about Things and their owners wanting to put wood on them... you got off better than mine as my PO mounted wood on the outside on the side... where they always rust out anyway... so mine is a bit rustier than yours!

i am glad i held out for the thing, i knew about it when i got the bus offer, thats the main reason i turned it down. i just had to sell the rabbit before the thing sold. its still sitting in the garage waiting patiently right now until i can get the headgasket changed on my jetta. although i have taken off the "aftermarket" trailer turnsignals(they were driving me crazy!). the old man kept stressing the fact that it would hold an 8'x4' sheet of plywood, and that it was a great utility vehicle. he also could not believe that i did not want his homemade top ( a westfalia pop top) and that i would remove the roll bar, after telling him that i hit my head on it going down the road, he claimed that i entered the thing wrong!

ARe you sure that the rollbar isn't made that way so that it will still fit a stock top? It looks about right... not that I have a rollbar in mine. I would like to have one.

im pretty sure a stock top would fit with it on, i definitely will be removing it though, make an offer and it can be yours!

thanks bryce, i hated to see it go aswell, but im an aircooled guy at heart, and i've still got the jetta if i feel the urge to play in the water Twisted Evil (the worst part about selling the rabbit was the new owner said he was going to ditch the enkies...the whole reason i built the car...

get ready for all the attention and people saying stuff like:

"does it float"
"what the hell is that?"
"nice jeep"
"Is that made out of fiberglass"
" THIIIIIIIIIIIING!!!!!!!"
"How much?"
"I'll give you XXXX dollars for it"

and also all the random people taking pictures of it, with puzzled looks on their face. and having to explain what the hell it is, and drawing a huge crowd where ever you go.

a buddy of mine has one, and everytime i see him, there are atleast 3-4 people looking at it asking questions, and wanting to buy it Laughing

Thanks, and thanks for the offer,

the 181 will eventually be up for sale though... to fund an engine for the oval, and a few other things, or i would trade both for a split! Cool
