Hey folks. The name is Damian.
I just picked up a 1984 GTI for $600 and started searching, found this site so I thought I'd share. I've been into VWs and Porsches for a while (after high school, before marriage), but have taken a slight break and got into custom 4x4 building. Picked up this wabbit after deciding I wanted something more gas-friendly than my rigs.
Timing worked out perfect, I had left a message on this guys windshield a few years back, and he called asking if I was interested about a month ago.
This GTI is a mixed blessing/curse. Now I've got a nice rig that gets decent mileage that I actually like driving, but the down-side is that now I've got a ton of things I want to do to it.
Oh well. I'm going going to lie. You guys use some acronyms that I don't know ~ but I'll do my best to follow along. I'll document my build-up of the GTI here for historical sake I'm more than happy to hear what ya'll have to say, suggestions you can give, or leads on parts, but I'll be honest ~ I should be considered a NEWBIE so if you say one of those 'VW' slang I'm likely to give you a look.
Be patient. I'll update this as often as I can, with as much info as I can ~ hoping some of you guys can give me some insight on things.
Anyway, that is all.
