I think the local motors guy now builds kits to convert your Jetta wagon into a little truck.
His kits are actually well engineered and pretty cool. He does other cars to, just don't know what.

I think so. Not 100 % sure though.

I looked at a Jetta wagon TDI conversion that was very well done. I thought to myself, I would rock that.

Didn't know, but he has many other platforms too.

His kits seem to be well engineered for the do it yourself guy.

Local Motors now focuses on new technologies for public transportation and have relocated as well. They focus on the Olli bus.

Wow! The driving prowess is as impressive as the suspension tune the car has.
