      My daughters 'rocco had a weird intermittent overheat that was solved by an old VW mech; there's a restricter in the return line to the overflow bottle- at least on her '85- and once it was pulled,...

      Please Jesus yes. I was thinking about it today; the 1989 Isuzu stripper P/U that started me on my path to glory would go for about 12k today at constant (minimum wage) dollars. Add 3k for current...

      Were you around when they were new? They were slammed back then as narrow purpose, race-homologation specials, without almost any redeeming qualities for DD and/or street use, much as the first Z-28...

      Absolute agreement, *but*; the SAAB is a prime example of the benefits simple aftermarket 'wood kits' can produce. It's purely psychological, but totally transforming. I'll add that my all-time...

      My guess is it was planned this way at the beginning- just a slow walk away in order to structure the payouts, avoid the taxes, and guaranteee credibility of the brand.;)

      Seems like a lot of pressure to hit aero/84mpg hi-way. My guess is the big money needed for production doesn't come in until Elio's 'credit card fuel rebate financing' plan satisfies the 'too big to...

      Mk2 Golf/ Jetta struts and shocks are the same, but Jettas have stiffer springs in back. Early Mk3 and Corrado fronts fit Mk2, and make for a nice 'snow country' lift. The rear shocks on early Mk3's...

      That's like passing on Jennifer Lawrence to dry hump Joan River's dug up corpse.:confused:

      Scary, structurally dangerous rust; second gear synchros; engine/diff/shaft mounts; flimsy interior; more fun than a box of kittens- prices starting to get a bit wacky.
