Jetta TruckTom Turkey (Cedar Falls, Iowa) is in the process of building one Cool Caddy. He and his father have created a one-of-a-kind stretch Caddy. They took the rear end of an '81 pickup (Caddy) and mated it to the front end of a 2-door '84 Jetta to produce a Caddy 16" longer than stock. They are currently adding a G60 engine into it.

Ronny Julian has a nice looking '81 pickup, lowered and powered by a 1.8l gas engine.

High RiderOn the opposite end of the spectrum, Blake MacPherson, from Cleveland, OH., is running a lifted Caddy. He writes:

For inquiring minds this was way above 5 banana conversion. I needed to limit the suspension travel in the front, when ya jump it, or even jack it up, or else the right side driveshaft will rub the front control arm mount. And the driver's side inner cv boot will tear, too. I fabbed up a bar out of C-channel that mounts under the control arm mounts. I welded brackets to the inside of the front control arm mount. The back lift is easy, use (longer spring) shackles and blocks. Oh yea, i used jetta gli front springs, and cut the spring perches ,and relocated them up 2 inches, for more lift. I added 195-70-14 firestones, theyll do till i find a nice mudder in 14 in wheels. Oh yea, and my custom"team hillfolk racing" sticker.
