snooze = lose




I heard back from the seller...



1) About the underbody: it was regularly oil sprayed, so "no rust".



2) Someone picked it up yesterday for $450.

Would I be paying too much for an XFi at $1000?

Would it make sense to Plastidip everything from the rub strip down satin black? With diagonal orange conspicuousity stripes?

How many miles on the XFi? I assume there's zero rust. If compression is good and the synchros are OK, $1k seems reasonable.

Ha! None!

Yet.

I attempted to own the teal one last week. Most of these little old lady and little old man-mobiles have the wrong transmission, and I'm not looking to do that kind of project.

Batman Junior — "Around 100,000" I may or may not get a more accurate number later. He bought another six months insurance so the pressure is off to perfect the sale.

So it's all on me to let go of prolly the only 3-door Dasher diesel with 5-speed and Ronal wheels in the Western States. So sad.

^ What's the motivation to even consider it?


Xist: 5 roadworthy & 2 parts cars in ~12 years. Not too excessive!

Consider selling it? If the Dasher has a name, it's Old Smokey. The hood shakes when it idles.

But bottom line, I don't have the space. The Metro is a foot shorter.

134,914 miles. I will be third owner. I drove it as a loaner maybe 10 years ago. Curiously, I drove the Dasher as a loaner 10 years before I bought it.

The current plan is to drive the Superbeetle out there to borrow the Metro and then just never bring it back.
