      So I ran across this car that I could see in the gaage as I randomly drove by this house.

      Stopped and I spoke to an elderly lady.

      She had a 87 marine blue coupe.

      -original owner
      -original window sticker
      -elderly female owned
      -Service receipts By local vw shop
      -71k !!!!
      -intact headliner

      But its not running , regardless for the benjamin franklin I paid I have faith I can get it to run ( thanx to the mk2 forums )

      - It had "rustproofing" from factory so that might have helped its awesome condition.

      PICS PICS PICS PICS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      A bit dirty but NO ROT !!!

      looks like a great find!

      wish we got the coupes over here - so much cooler than a 3 door golf or a 5 door jetta

      The car looks good

      You need to swing by my house with that headliner so I could make a mold of it.

      ahhh. this makes me to excited for mine. i'm picking up an 86 marine blue coupe in the same basic condition. it needs a new tranny, and cylinder head, then it's good. can't wait to get it washed and waxed like this one though. lookin good.. can't wait to see what you do with it.
