      '03 BMP 20th GTI, '84 TD Jetta
      04-11-2012 09:27 AM #3
      Our project '84 TD (unknown mileage...at least 182k, full rebuild last winter) and my 20thAE GTI (118k):



      And our newest aquisition, my hubby's DD of an '01 Jetta TDI (114k, got with a dead auto, swapped to a 5-speed):




      I previously owned a '99 New Beetle (2.0, 5-speed) but it got totaled with less than 102k in August. Hubby's first car was a '95 VR6 Passat. He got it with 195k, sold it with 225k 4 years later, and we found it nearby a few months ago with 330k on it! We've only ever had 1 non-VW in the stable, which was his '00 Accord, but he sold it a few weeks ago to get back in a VW. Nice to have 3 at home

      current pair (not quite a fleet yet):

      Basically the fleet, just need to photoshop an '80 4 door diesel in place of the black, gutted Cabriolet.

      Im loving the detail on the bettle. The white seal trim matches the interior well. Is that Nardi steering wheel on it?

      looks like a rewrapped formuling
      How does a rotary work? This one's easy: the magic triangle spins in the peanut and then apex seals come out.

      Here's mine
      I sold the white rabbit in the back about 5 years ago and just bought it back last year!

      What it looked like when I owned it previously 5 years ago

      Scuba If I got in a cab and Esher was driving, I'd get right out. Then I'd ponder how drunk I was that I entered the rear of a 2dr rabbit and thought it was a cab.

      Middle red Mk2 is donating its 1.6TD to the red Mk1 on the right. It was -30c when I did this swap, took us two days start to complete finish.
