      EDIT I see some of the picture links are broken, and I needed to add a couple cars tot he list. I'll try and fix the pic links and update the others with pics soon.

      I buy cars quite often. If i see a good deal I grab it and sell it, or drive it for a while, then sell it.

      I've owned 7 cars, 9 motorcycles, and 1 tent trailer.

      Of those 97 cars, 43 have been vw's


      It's a sickness, I know

      1997 My jetta.. first and only car so far. I plan to keep her forever, i have no desire for any other car. It's the only body style VW, aside from a mk1 jetta that really does anything for me.

      I lost track at 65 VWs - I used to buy them cheap, drive them for a while and sell 'em for a profit. Of course those days are gone - believe it or not, people used to let me haul them out of their way for free!!! I have a huge selection of VW toys though - my kids counted 90 different ones Uh - yea, Id say I'm a little obsessed LOL

      OH I've also owned 2 Camaros, 2 MGBs, A dodge Dart and assorted other "beaters".

      81 VW Jetta (gone with the wind)
      90 VW Corrado (now my firends car)
      95 VW Golf Sport (another friend's too)
      95 VW Jetta GLS (previous wife's car, one more friend's car)
      95 VW GTI
      99 VW Golf GLS 2.0 (wife)
      79 VW Rabbit 2.0 OBDII
      05 Honda Rebel ( I never thought I would end up with a honda , well it's not a car and gas prices rule )


      As you'd see I sell my cars in very good condition, thats why my friends buy them from me, and the time for the GTI is coming

      84 Buick Skylark- hey, it was free
      72 Beetle- saw it for sale on a farm in SD. It was clean; Old Boy said he picked it up in CA.
      85 Mercury Cougar- bought it to be my winter car, because it was too cold in MN to drive a Beetle year round. However, Cougars with fatties on the rear rims don't go anywhere in a MN winter.
      91 Toyota Celica- to replace the Beetle and Cougar. Best car I ever owned; should never have sold her at 200,000 miles.
      01 Golf- I still own the bugger (100,000 miles), and it's in the shop all the time. I miss the Toyota.
      04 Honda Civic EX- What I drive when the Golf is broken, or most of the time. It's no 91 Celica.

      So, two VWs. They both seemed a lot better than what they ended up being.

      I've had 53 cars...

      My present car is my 2nd VW. My very first car was a 90 rabbit 4dr. That car was in the shop every other week.

      Yeah. Heard the 90 Rabbits were problematic. Suffered from constant spark-plug bearing failure and leaky blinker fluid seals

      I've got a lovely bunch of coconuts...
