Alright heres the sob story. I wasn't planning on doing any kind of project until i graduated college. However I learned about 2 months ago life doesn't always go the way you planned.
One day I had this:
Then I fell asleep on my way to school while driving and ended up with this:
needless to say the frame was severely bent, strut towers cracked in half, and 2 brand new keskins smashed to hell.
So I wanted to do a golf project so I spent a countless amount of time driving hours looking and literally less then a mile from my house, my girlfriends best friends brother has a '97 golf just sitting there in their yard. The brother apparently backed into a tree, the airbags deployed and it has been sitting ever since. The car has may of '05 stickers on it. I got the car for 300 bucks and had it towed home.
light damage from hitting a tree, shouldnt be too hard to fix
got some moss and stuff growing on it
has all its fogs
some aftermarket tails
pretty clean interior, except its got some silly purple tint on the windows
big @ss sub and amp
Okay so heres the plan. I'm gonna swap the: engine, trans, ecu, exhaust/headers, coilovers, starter, airbags, rear bumper, and maybe some other things from my gti to this piece. However I do not have a garage and its gonna be like 30 degrees for the next couple months. This will be a slooooooow process needless to say.
what im driving in the meantime:
I'll try to update and work on this as much as possible. But i go to school full time and work like 5 hours shy of fulltime. So I dont have a lot of free time.
Poll of what color people think ill be painting the car.
