      Hey, looking for an 83 or 84 GTI specifically. White or silver, but other colors considered. Might consider a Rabbit shell to use for metal parts.

      Your comments on Top Gear are pretty spot on, but is a Carrera 3.2 anything more than a "slow car fast" car these days? My dad drives an 88 G50 3.2 and it's honestly neither fun or fast, just...

      Nice perspective.

      For what it's worth, I left my 2011 Jetta Sportwagen TDI and Fiesta home and took my 84 GTI on my last 6,000 mile trip. The windows down and engine strain made the vast boring...

      I have a Milano, which is essentially the same thing mechanically.

      People have mentioned rust and flimsy interiors. Interiors can be sourced, but rusty ones are hard to deal with.

      No Fuegos, actually! I think I mentioned that one of the guys at the shop daily drives the Alliance GTA, and the 18i wagon is in daily driver (or museum car) condition, considering the model. I'd...

      French/Italian cars out to pasture

      HushyPushy's 650S shots with the 2CV motivated me to share my latest round of photos of some French and Italian subjects in rough shape. I saw these when I was visiting my brother in Tennessee. I'm...

      Nice spec - I have that with a moonroof. It's pretty nice in the snow with snow tires.

      I love mine too, but I definitely don't think it's fun to drive in a slow car sense, like the MK1 GTI is. ...

      Curious, can you expand on that? Any data? And, I'm not being sarcastic - genuinely curious.

      Ok, that might be a good reason to actually go for the larger wagon vs. renting trucks when you need them. I neglected to look at what other cars you own. With a 911 and a (soon to be replaced?)...

      Just an idea: you can rent a Ram 1500 from enterprise for $60 a day, and it's $19 for 1.5 hours with an F-250 from Home Depot. Depending on how often you actually need the hatch/wagon functionality,...

      Love this build :thumbup:

      Curious why the upper link is bent? Is that to avoid contact with the brake hard/soft line bracket? If these were one-off tubes, I'd try as hard as possible to keep the...

      1.8T takes cash, but the 225Q cars are enjoyable - much more lag than a 2.0T, but can be fun. Think solid, not sporty. Great highway cars with excellent steering wheel and seats. Fuel economy is...

      Thanks for the info - own (owned?) one?



      The Fiesta is fun to drive, but it's a hopelessly cost-cut economy car. The fewer miles I put on it pounding over expansion joints, the better it will...

      You know, the convertible top would be nice, but for my purposes, I can see the Lexus doing fine with the windows down.

      I have a few leads on SC300s in great shape in the $2,500-$3,500 range.

      5spd road trip: R129 300SL or SC300?

      I'm doing a Detroit to Seattle (and back) trip this summer and instead of taking my 84 GTI again, or risking it in my Alfa Milano, or dumping the miles on my FiST, I was thinking of buying a reliable...
