      That law has always been there. Until last year, you could drive pretty much anything at any height you wanted and cops would not bother you. What happened is that we elected a new government and the...

      I wanted to, but on that day the PCH was a parking lot (or is it always like that?). I turned on a side road in hope to find a canyon but got trapped into more traffic instead. My patience was...

      I like the 4-speed auto in my 190E. It doesn't feel like other automatics either. It's like if the converter was always locked. Minimal slippage. Also, the gated shifter is nice. But I don't really...

      I just noticed that thing has Golf headlights but the stock Jetta hood with some kind of conversion grille.

      That's one question I was asking myself through the trip. Hear this: the road was officially decommissionned in the 70's. Some business owners said that the day the interstate opened, it was exactly...
    6. Last summer I hopped in my 190E and cruised America's main street

      Montreal to LA via the old Route 66. Something I was planning to do for a long time. Enjoy! :cool:

      I'm 25. I've had 2 mk2 Jettas and a Volvo 940. Now I own a 190E and an S70 T5. I can do all the work myself, so a hefty garage bill is not something I loathe. People I work with who are my age own...

      One time I went to a guy's house to buy Scirocco seats for my Mk2. Seats turned out to be trashed, but I saw something that looked like a steering wheel just laying flat on the shelf. Asked the guy...

      I have one. I paid 1600 for it. It needed a new rad and the heater core started leaking a month after I got it. Headgasket went south after 20 000 km (total of 270 000 km on the car)

      But all in...

      I know what you mean. During the spring of 2014, I sold my ABA-t Mk2, which I built from the ground up over the course of 5 years.

      Roadtrip lounge: Roads like Route 66

      At the beginning of this summer, I drove the whole Route 66 with my '92 190E (I might do a post later). This kinda gave me the roadtrip bug. There's something blissful about driving your old car...

      I live in a salt area. Basically, the best thing is to have at least 2 cars, including one that you can depend on. My undependable one was a '92 Jetta ABA turbo that was slammed on Porsche 7-slots. I...

      One time I was employed for a construction company and most of us had Sierras or Silverados lended to us by the company. One time I noticed that the steering was off center and told my colleagues....

      I did the ABA turbo thing a few years ago (but in a Mk2). It cost me about 1000$. That was with a free turbo, ebay manifold, ebay intercooler, ebay piping, friends who did the welding, C2 software...

      I love the Benz, but if it needs to be super reliable, take the Lex.

      V12's were notorious for having cooling issues because the rad (actually I thinks it has 2 rads) was too small and the system would overheat easily.
