Lets try this again... As some of you may know already I used to have an 83 GTI which was my project car, but due to financial and space oriented problems i had to get rid of it. I was given an ultimatum to get it rolling or to get something that is at least rolling.. (Buying something rolling and painted helped me financially... the GTI was sold to my friend a few miles away. It is in great hands) Well after searching on the internet i found my diamond in the rough. It was a 1980 VW Caddy from Ohio, The previous owner was Jimmy V. he as well was in a situation like me.. too many projects and too little space.
Finding another Mk1 worked out perfectly because i already had the long awaited front Bagyards bombers custom made for my Mk1, and i also had multiple parts purchased for the gti.
So here are tyhe new specs for now..
-AWP 1.8t, 02m 6 speed transmission, and CAE motorsports shifter
-Front Bagyard Bombers, Rear Slam Specialties RE-6 , 8 switches, 2 480cc compressors, and a 5 gallon tank
I purchased this in July, just never had time to make my build thread.. Parts have been slowly coming in.
From the purchase.
