Glad to see another enthusiast got their hands on it
Whats going on everyone? Well I always had a passion for VW ever since my uncle had his 91 GTI when I was 7-8yrs old. Well the following in Sacramento where I grew up was non existant (unless its really deep underground) so I never had the fuel to keep the fire going. Well I decided to move to the greatest place on earth, the good ol' PNW where my buddy at work has a MK3. As soon as I seen it and seen all the awesome VW's around this neck of the woods I knew it was meant to be.
SO I decided to sell my GT Eclipse to fund a car I had been eyeballing for about 2 months. After hoping and praying the guy had it still when I sold my car I decided to hit him up. Low and behold he still had it. Sold my Car and the very next day I took a trip up north to pick it up and drive it back home. The entire drive I felt like I was a kid again and even now a week and half later I still just want to gas it all the way up and drive until it runs out of fuel.
Enjoy the pictures and the car. I am sure many of you have seen this car on here before as I am using the same pictures.
This is her first fuel up before heading home with her.
MY OLD CAR <3
Man it was so hard seeing it drive off I miss driving that car so much, have fun with her I put much <3 and time into her. Keep it looking good for me
PS: It had BRAND NEW front fender flares from Absolute German and it was so low on the drive hime from putting the RS'S on her, that I hit EVERY TURTLE on the highway.....Sorry they cracked, little to low
The day I sold it to you...
After raising it so he could drive it back to Oregon

More pics taken today. If anyone is interested in knowing the paint is Tornado Red with a Red to Green Pearl. She is about to go through her Cut/Buff Stage so she will look like glass. Should have her back in my hands on Sunday!
Just got my Smoked E-Codes, Smoked Bananas, and Smoked BB Turns in the mail today. All I need is my car back and Half Smoked Tails.
Finally was able to get my smoked turns with city lights installed this afternoon
