      This car has been "ready to drive" for a month or better.. it has been illegal to drive for longer.. I finally got to put a couple hundred miles on it this weekend. I should have done this a long time ago......

      1985 Westy Golf GL Base model

      Stock Options
      Leak free sunroof - (non sunroof car)
      AC/Heat
      Roll up windows
      3 speed wipers
      8v power plant
      Upshift indicator
      No Powersteering

      Thats about the list of its "options"

      We added

      03 24v GTI Engine,
      93 SLC Rado trans
      98 ABA GTI K frame,
      Full ABA GTI disc swap
      Hydro clutch
      Cable shift
      FT & RR Neuspeed swaybars
      Recaro Flat Bolster seats
      Raceland Coilovers
      2.5 Borla/TT exhaust

      Thats about it, New parts from axles out to hubs, cleaned up some trim, hunted a few "westy" parts, dusted off the Turbos, took us about 6 months from dropping it off to paint till today..

      Love it hate it, whatever, this thing is fun to drive.. no im not lowering it..

      Big thanks to SR83 for its "Glam photos"


















      The black jetta is 12v dizzy swap shrick manifold, customer car that we finished last year.


      Rest of its pics are here

      this x2. I wish I could find a full tweed brown interior. Me personally, I think it would look amazing in a red car

      I am waiting on a friend of mine to come down and chase my friend in his 24v rado and my 24v, through tunnels, underpasses, ect...

      The car is an NA rocket, you know how much fun a 12v mk2 is, this literally is 2x the fun. Its considerably faster than a 12v mk2, even that shricked mk2.

      I am going to get a couple more pictures later in the week. I am not sure when my videographer will be here.

      Had a great time going to and from sowo in this car.

      Had it weighed before we left. Fully fueled, no driver, 2250lbs.

      Specs on an 85-87 golf in base trim like mine says it was 2375 lbs. I am missing the boat anchor bumpers, i have slightly lighter seats, no ac parts, no radio parts, no power steering, that's about all I have cut out. Running mk3 brakes and coils, but it is a full interior.
