Well, what can I say. I've reached a point in my life where I'm not sure I can justify still owning this beauty. I don't have the time or the money to play with it the way that I used to. I've owned this car for about 11 years and I've babied it the entire time. The last winter it saw (breifly) was 2001. It's been garaged during the winters since 2002. The car is NOT perfect by any means, it has plenty of small flaws here and there and things about it I would still like to upgrade/change if I had the time or the $$, but it is an absolute eye grabber, and a nice total package of fun.
Let me start with the bad things:
-needs passenger side axle, it's started to click a bit and I haven't had a chance to replace it.
-still has rear drum brakes, however the e-brake works, so it's up to debate whether or not this is actually bad
-has a few dents and dings and a few minor scratches here and there.
-Seems to have a starter issue once in a while (seemingly hot days) that I haven't been able to track down, becuase I can't reproduce the issue when I'm actually trying to work on it. The simple work around is to jump starter directly to battery and it starts every time.
-Despite being a NOS part, the drivers side window occasionally decides not to roll down for a mintue.
Ok, now on to the list of things I've done. I'm sure i'll be adding to this as I think of things (so many over the years it's impossible to remember).

The price I'm asking is lucky number 13,000$.
I don't want to hear what you think it is or isn't worth, becuase I don't care. Don't bother asking me to part/sell anything separately, becuase I won't. Also don't bother lowballing becaue again, I don't care.
This car might be worth more to me than you, but it is a piece of history at this point, has been featured in PVW twice and might be one of the most known mk2 GTI's of all time, so I'm posting it up for what I think it's worth and unless you're serious about purchasing it for that price, it will remain in my garage.
Thanks for looking, please e-mail me at Thelumpya2@gmail.com if you are SERIOUSLY interested.
