My DD, 2.0slow (sorry for the low quality pic)
Doing some more wheels/adapters work now...
Aristo's look so damn nice on these cars, but they are ridiculously heavy
Just sold mine off and picked up a set of 996 turbo twists, at almost 10 pounds per corner weight savings, I expect noticeable improvements in all round performance come spring.....
Some old pics for views......they do look gorgeous this project is just starting....I intend to have some fun with it.
Some of you may remember my old cabby...."Taz".... I have a feeling I'm going to take the bug in an aircraft/Porsche theme combo direction.....(shameless reminiscing pic follows....)
This car is beat to heal inside and out, but my wife loves it so that's what counts. I will have it looking great in a few months I hope. Passenger side is scratched to hell. No passenger side RVM, right and left side skirts dented, front and back bumper covers are split, both passenger side fenders are cracked, and needs new taillight covers, including 3rd break light. That is just the outside. The inside needs a new headliner glued in, driver side door panel, new center console armrest, seats need deep cleaning, dash is scratched to hell, and passenger side seat needs to be reupholstered. All in all, lots of damn work. Mechanically I have a problem with the windows keeping power for almost an hour after it the key is off, air bag sensor is on, check engine light is on, I don't know if the plastic impellar water pump or the timing belt has been changed at 75K miles. The car has 100,647 miles on it exactly. Probably $3000+ in repairs, not including paint, I figure.
Oh and needs 2 more sets of keys, which is about $450 cut and programmed from the local VW stealership. I live in an area where imports are rare. The only imports are from people moving here from California and bring their demands here.
