Description for Volkswagen Rabbit 1982

I recently picked this up then soon came to the realization that I REALLY don't need another project. She kind of runs. Starts up drives strong for a few miles, then peters out, Usually starts right back up and runs a little more before doing the same thing. I have replaced the Fuel filter, fuel pump relay, drained the tank and tested the pump, beyond that, nothing. It is my guess (and several others) the fuel pump is overheating and shutting down, but I dont want to throw money at it if I'm not going to keep it. So As you can see it is in fair shape, some rust here and there, the drivers floor is a bit soft. It is totally unmolested though, has pretty much all factory original parts mud/stone guards, radio, spare tire etc. Comes with cap. If you want to tinker with it, I'm sure someone who is more familiar with the old gas motors can get it going and drive it home, if not, will need trailered.
