      Anyone see this car in person, If so, what are your thoughts. I was toying with making an offer, but would hate to drive down there if its just some made over POS...

      I haven't seen it in person, but I do know that it has been for sale for the last 6+ months. Looks OK from the pics, except for the painted trim under the grill? It looks like it was smashed up... that and there's a light wired into the "unleaded fuel" switch blank by the headlight switch, so it probably has an aftermarket alarm, which could mean butchered wiring. I made that mistake with my Corrado. It does have clear turns, a Kamei eyebrow, and a Passat cupholder . Maybe if you could get them down under $3k it might be worth it. GL

      Ive actually seen this in person. The exterior is not in bad shape, but it aint the greatest either, and the interior was pretty good for a 22 year old car. i talked to one of the guys there and he said the supercharger was rebuild not too long before they got it and that the engine was in good condition. But in my opinion its way over priced, the wheels are whack and the guys there were a-holes. This is just my opinion, hope it helps!

      Those are some sweet period correct Momo wheels. If you're into that sort of thing.

      Maybe I'm getting more blind, but the pics sure make it look like it has 5 speed...

      Very period correct Cody. Haven't seen those in years!

      5spd in the pic. Looks like it comes with an "alloy ladder" too...

      And period correct wheels or not, those are horrible.

      There's a towing company in theSprings named Klaus towing, look them up on the net. They do auctions, the had a super clean t red wolfy 91 Jetta and a nice clean g60 raddo, he just got a charger put on it, they were cheap.
