Sure - except this VW goes 0-60 in 2.4 seconds and has a top speed limited to 258 MPH. It is amazing technology.

This is mine. It's a 95 Chevy Suburban with a solid axle swap and 8" lift. I have it set up with an air compressor and a seat hitch for putting on boots along with a few other mods for making the trip up to the mountain and back fun and safe...including 35" studded snow tires.

Nice rig RedRomo, I looked a few 'burbs but ruled them out because I wanted more MPG Did you do the mods yourself? What did you mean by hitch seat?
Like a little bench that that goes in the receiver?

Yeah, I did all the mods myself and yes, a fold down bench seat that attaches to the hitch via drop hitch.
Next up is custom roof rack and front pre-runner light bar.

I don't wheel it. I use it for trips and camping.

yeah its not the sportiest suv but it gets the job done. did you drive the v8 or v6? cuase its a night and day difference. plus the Limited version feels way more nicer inside then the regular. I dont even use the rear rear seats i just put them down and we throw all the gear in the back. its paid off so its like whatever to me. but if i had to do it over again id probably snag a 4 door RUBI

We just traded in our Jeep for a 2011 Subaru Impreza WRX STI. Husband's dream car. Fit it with some Blizzak tires.

Husband is obsessed. Looks like this guy:
