Not old... But still a VW
I would like to lift my car some with adjustability to go back down
with non knobby all weather tires 15x8 or 14x8 probably kumho ecstas
I plan on flaring my fenders out or wide body flares as well
I feel like I'm drivin a hot wheels toy sometimes, I want to make it 4wd. Haldex or Frankenstein syncro seems the best way, a friend told me to use a Mazda b series 80s truck rear axle setup and drive shaft.
I already have a Volvo cis turbo 240 fuel distributor I could move my cold air intake a different direction and it would be a snorkel
My springs are cut with bilstein hds
I have a whole
Stock setup with original height springs
Don't know if I'll take springs off and into bilsteins
Or just use the stock setup. And rebuild the bilsteins

B4 Passat VR6 suspension + mk3 = LOL
If you want to make your 2.0 8v faster, read the thread below!
My car is lifted now 4-5 inches up front and 3 in the rear
Mk2 golf front springs and mk1 rabbit rear
I was just doing it because they are free/cheap
I may need to get bigger tires or wheels
Or lighter wheels bigger tires
Haha I love opening a thread to see my car
Trying to figure out how to raise it a couple more inches without totally screwing up the suspension geometry. Also have a set of hella 500's I'm about to mount

When I first got the car. Bought for $100, had to buy a carb and bring tires to get it home from my buddy's place.
This was baja version 1.0, all steel, only money I was into it at this point beyond purchase/licensing was for a couple sawzall blades, the rear wheels and gas.
Bashing around in the snow with my friend's now deceased Super Duty (wasn't super enough to win head on against a tree at 40mph... don't text and drive)
And one of her last fire-road sessions with a few buddies last summer. I wish the pics showed the fact that by this point there was a 4ft CB antenna mounted to the back, the thing looked like an RC car.
Stance is not a verb.
There are some great videos on YouTube by a company that outfits VW Vans (Syncro, etc) for offroading/overlanding...amazing shjt they pull off.
Gone and missed: '84 Scirocco, '81 Scirocco S, '80 HiLux 4x4, '77 Kawi Enduro, '74 sparkling green Schwinn Stingray
I want to make a awd or rwd offroad rally style rocco
Not posin I tear it up on the dirt gravel and four wheeler trails
I left alabama last week and now im in south Cali
So much for mk1s being junk
I've put 22 thousand miles on it since last October
And did 90- 100+ mph (speedo pegs at 85)for about 8-9 hours constantly

anybody lifted a 2004 R32? have been seeing used ones in the $10k range and it's got me fantasizing about a Country Golf ripoff.
You are not your job. You're not how much money you have in the bank. You're not the car you drive. You're not the contents of your wallet. You're not your khakis.

The Turbo Pumpkin 1995 Jetta VR6 build
I have the Volvo cis turbo bottom half of the fuel distributor, it's setup as an actual cold air intake right now behind the air dam, it could be easily made into a air tight snorkel
Someone just hit my car so I have to fix the quarter panel dent and I just got a rear beam to put on
