Sorry if I seem like a hater, I like my cars with boxy angles and no creature comfort
There's a bunch of them hidden around here in the mountains
Anyone who wants a late 80s cabriolet? I found a purple(midnight blue) one with white leather interior
It runs good, it's in front of Shelby medical center in alabaster

Awesome rides ! Especially that cabby, I owned 2 of them
I love those forged carat wheels on that jetta
I'll post some pics of my old rides later: let's see more people's rides!
If there's enough of us we could get something going

Haven't really gotten too far into Hilde the Ghettowagen, budget's been kinda slim lately.
After a ton of thought, I'm aiming for simple OEM+, keeping the 8V and getting rid of the rediculous 17s as soon as I can find a suitable set of rims/tires.
After looking at everyone else's rides, I'm almost embarrassed to post pics, but I haven't had it long enough to make dramatic improvements.
Yeah, it's an 8v. If I wanted a sporty car, I'd buy an R.
My first vdub 1 of 5 with guinea blue paint and all white leather 1989 I sold it to a chick Drove it through a few hurricanes in Florida
This is the one I bought after selling the cabby it was a Audi 3a /jh hybrid pulled to 160 easily
Zender air dam and Wing made it suck to the road
It was hit by an illegal alien in Dallas the night it became a classic after that I had a midnight blue cabby I sold it before I moved to Oregon. It had the 3a/jh in it and gawd it was redonkulously scary
fast a bad computer made it have constant cold map fuel looping 5-10/mpg and sounded like a v8
Bought his one in Oregon
1980 scirocco S 16v 2.0 dual tt euro downpipe open no exhaust it was t boned by an old man you could hear me 2 miles away so I know he was deaf
Then I got the black rocco on the first Post in this thread, it was wrecked, torn unibody missing a door and on fire before i got it home after buying it.
so use that as inspiration.. People told me to scrap it and refused to work on it and weld it or even let me use a welding machine Because of liability, it probably would have gone to a junkyard if I wasn't the most stubborn mfker you'll ever meet
Pictures do it more justice but it's a really nice car despite rattle canning matte black and some bondo
As a result of my adventures I've learned how to do so much, including welding, wiring,transmission changing, brakes, and almost everything about cis/cis-e I plan on learning more body work and paint skills soon a respray and she will be lookin nice
I like those deep dish wheels very similar to my 10/13s on the red rocco

nice i want an 80 Rocco so bad i love the curve up on the rear window... nice colection!!!!! my first was a mk3 golf then an b4 pasat vr then my mk2 gti then cabby plus a few mk3 golf donors! but im definitely all about the mk1-2s now
My dream is :
I want to be able to drive down dirt roads/desert/mountains,
With those fenders above and raised up a few inches with 13x10s with all weather tires
If you like having more room/handling it's the way to go,
Not as much death wobble at high speeds (120+)
as a cabriolet or gti
If I can find a damn syncro I'll do a all wheel drive conversion
I dream about Vw builds all day lol
Sup having a good day?
I had a interview at a Vw dealership here know more about work Monday.
I'm supposed to change a Audi 6speed tt transmission maybe next week.
It has a broken shift selector fork the guy says, it's going into a shop to be rebuilt if that's what the problem is. I'm only going to get 5-700 for changing it out. I don't mind..
It's a 540hp beast, wish I could get his wrecke one for a swap/conversion
Been debating on returning the fuel system back to stock on the car. PO removed the accumulator tank/pump/regulator and put an inline pump in the mix, thus causing most of my idle/cold start problems if I'm right.
And he needs a kick to the nuts for cutting the rear springs. Those fvckers aren't cheap. I have the struts, just gotta source a set of springs.
And a headliner, why is it that every beater I've bought over the past few years doesn't have one?
Yeah, it's an 8v. If I wanted a sporty car, I'd buy an R.
Man some cool Gtis nice trophy
I installed a Volvo 240 intake on my cis today and removed the airbox I used a band clamp and cheese cloth until I get a k&n cone
Has a really nice throttle response and way louder
I ran a bottle for a catch can
I'll get a pic when I get home, you unbolt the lower intake to a Volvo cis box and bolt it onto yours, keep the lower half of your old box to hold the Volvo unit ,
Instead of letting air swirl around it goes straight into the Venturi plate
It's sounds pretty awesome, it makes a lot of whistling noises and sounds almost like low psi turbo
A lot more throttle response and louder engine noise
And it looks nice being metal and all
I was gonna sell it but I'm glad I didn't
Leave your old lower intake in to hold the Volvo unit
Rear side shows redirection of air and how it sits on old unit
I used a cheesecloth rag & clamp to make my own filter until I relocate my battery and run tubing to use a k&n conical filter
