My name is Mark Youngquist and first of all, I'm a Volkswagen fanatic! I've been working on, restoring and racing various Volkswagen models since 1985. I specialize in Scirocco, Cabriolet, Corrado, GTI and Caddy (pick up) models.
When I go through a car, I not only make sure it's no longer a "project" mechanically, but it's cosmetically finished as well. I do all the service work, install new convertible tops, have all dents removed, minor paintwork done, wheels refinished, and completely detail the car.
In the last few years I've bought and sold dozens of vehicles. I work closely with my customers to take the worry out of buying and shipping ensuring they are happy with the vehicle. I make sure they understand they can call with any issues that may arise.
This 1985 Cabriolet was disassembled and painted the original Titian Red. The headliner, pad and top were replaced. The injection system is new, tires are near new, wheels were reconditioned and the 2-tone leather interior is in perfect condition. It runs and drives excellently.
This car is a true time capsule! It has just 17,300 actual one owner miles and is ’like new”. The rubber trim is still soft and pliable, and all the cadmium plated parts are un-tarnished. I have all receipts since new, the original bill of sale and the window sticker.
This is my third VW bus and without question the nicest. It has a very straight body, new paint and a beautiful new tartan plaid interior. Mileage shown is 97 kilometers or 60,000 miles. It has Porsche replica wheels, new tires, new steering, suspension, brake system, shocks and mechanicals and has been converted to an upright 1600 engine. It also has a new roll back sunroof.
If you are interested in any of the cars and would like to see more photos and want more information, contact me below.
"I couldn't be happier with the GTI. I have no reservations or regrets after purchase which is a surprise to most people. There's plenty of horror stories out there about people buying cars on eBay or other websites that don't see the car prior to purchase. Mark is different. I feel he's an honest guy and he went out of his way to help me with making it easy.”
“I had a wonderful experience working with Mark to restore my 1987 VW Cabriolet. This car has been with me for over 15 years and it has a lot of sentimental value so finding someone I trusted to work on it was important. Mark was honest, transparent and easy to work with throughout the process. I feel fortunate to have found Mark for quality work - he treated my VW as if it was his own. Highly recommend!
"I have been restoring old Volkswagens to original condition as a hobby for over forty years and have bought cars from many people. I wanted to buy a water-cooled Volkswagen that I could just drive and enjoy. The 1993 Volkswagen Cabriolet that I bought from Mark is a wonderful car and it is exactly what was described. These days when so many people are scamming others it is nice to know one who can be trusted and is very honest. Mark made my purchase a pleasure and I was able to buy a car without any worries."
"I love the GTI I bought from Mark. The car was in fantastic condition and drives just as good as it did in 1984 - I'm amazed at how quickly it starts every time I turn the key. This was my first time buying a car sight-unseen (I live in California) but his communication was such that I never had any worries about trust at all. He's also been great about answering any questions I have and I know I can count on his help down the road."
“I purchased a 1989 Cabriolet from Mark for my wife, and we couldn’t be happier with our decision. Mark makes the used car buying experience very easy. He is only a phone call or text away if you have any questions about the vehicle or the process of purchasing a vehicle. It’s tough buying a car online, sight unseen, but Mark answered every single question I had honestly. It’s good to know how much pride he takes in working on these vehicles and that there are still trustworthy people to buy used cars from. Thanks Mark”.
“It’s got some dents but a PDR guy could take them out”, as noted by a recent comment, is often seen – but no issue here, as they’re already done. The “could use” list is shortened to just needing a new driver, as the repaint and reconditioning has resolved many of the typical faults. I especially like that the seller went above and beyond. This isn’t simply a cosmetic restoration, but they refreshed the suspension and even electric relays."
“I recently purchased a 1985 Scirocco and I couldn’t be happier. I reached out to Mark about any cars he was working on and he sent me pictures of the car as well as all the work he did to get it in like new condition. It drives great! Knowing I can call him with any questions regarding the car makes it even better. If you’re looking for a VW, look no further.“
"My wife wanted me to find the Cabriolet she once owned in High School and after some searching online I found Mark. He immediately sent pictures of the car he was currently working on. It happened to be what she wanted so we purchased it. The entire transaction was smooth and he also helped with shipping. Once received, the car was in great condition inside and out. Great experience with an honest seller and my wife couldn't be happier."
”Mark takes great pride in his work and you can tell that he really loves it. Restoring peoples beloved vintage vehicles is his passion and it shows! Mark went above and beyond any and all of my expectations with the restoration of my 1973 pink VW transporter bus. He is a consummate professional and really listens to what you want and need. If you ever have any reservations or doubts about working with Mark please get in touch with me and I will be happy to show you the finished product so you can see for yourself. I am one happy girl. Thank you Mark!
"Just got the car! It's beautiful - thank you so much, it was a pleasure doing business with you!"
“The deep red is my current Scirocco and it runs like a gem / new car as I was lucky enough to buy it with 13,000 miles on it last June and since then it’s up to 28,000 miles”
I'm always looking for low mile Cabriolets, GTI's, Rabbit trucks, etc. that have minor mechanical or cosmetic issues. I enjoy working on Volkswagens, and have experienced quite a number of issues with them. Feel free to call if you have any questions! I'm generally working on several "project cars" at any given time.
