Post up your mk2's that you paid under a grand for. I like to here the interesting story on how you came to buy it. The reason i ask is that i've noticed alot of people who bought their cars cheap always have a story on how they found it. I have alotta stories . It's also extra special (to me) when you buy something cheap and turn it into something. I know the PO was amazed on what i turned their old car into. Especially the non VW people.
Almost every mk2 i've own was bought for under a grand, thats if i didn't get it for free. Every single mk2 i've bought was 100% stock. And i remember every single purchase, mainly from the people i didn't know.
I'll start with my most recent mk2.
It was a trade on a trade with a GTI i paid $200 for. I'll explain...
I paid $200 for this 87 GTI 16v...
Which i trade it for this 92 Jetta GL
When my guy got the blue Jetta i have now, i wanted it so he offered to take back the black Jetta + i help him rebuild his VR for his MK2 GLI VR6. I threw in the interior from the Coupe because he wanted it. I didn't have to but he's my boy & he always looks out for me. I got VR that was in the Coupe from him. The VRT engine i have now came out a car i got from him. My brother's entire VR swap came from him. I can go on.
Anyway, post up.
