      If your talking about me I'm in the progress of restoring my second one. Do I find anything funny about it? No its a fun hobby to restore a car and look at the work that has been done.
      If you think I'm full of sh*t here's pic's of a gti I stripped to use parts for my gti since my pass. Side inner and outer quarter are f**ked

      WAIT!!!!!!! you have got to be fukin with us. you put that much effort into a MK3 to be save and yet you don't think the same effort should be put into saving this bus. this bus will get 3x the money when done then your MK3 will ever get.

      It's not about getting the money back that I'm putting into it. I got the Ginster GTI for $1000 and after its all said and done as a whole I can prob get 6500 after throwing 10k into it. I'm not in it to make money, its just a car I like and something I want to do. Don't see why it bothers you so much unless your life if just that boring that you can't anything to do but make pointless comments and ridiculing other people's hobbies or how they choose to spend their money. For the op he can buy the van if he wants, I threw my opinion out there just like he wanted if you didn't like it, too bad its not your thread, you don't have to like my opinion.

      Does anyone think that I could fit some 19x10's on a bus like this if I had enough stretch?
