Ok so it's time I finally post pictures and info of the lowest mileage and cleanest Rabbit in existence(ignore the areas I have to clean up from 30 years of gravel garage floors).
Purchased the car two years ago basically from the original owner(owner died friend turned car for profit) with 7,100 OG miles. She was the little old lady who drove to the liquor store once a week. It is an L model with no other options. She somehow managed to cook the clutch so we pulled out an NOS VW one to install. We later located an NOS Abarth exhaust and am currently hunting an NOS Callaway kit. I couldn't ask for much more as it's my favorite color Lago Blue(LE5B) and has all the rare blue interior parts, plus the original radio delete plate!
Plans are to find NOS period correct aftermarket parts then choose from the best. It will be lowered on H&R Ultra Lows thanks to the info from the forum. It will be receiving 15 inch ATS Cups, but I know nothing about offset so I may end up with several pairs of shoes lol. And finally a vintage aftermarket steering wheel.
We were going to do a Euro front end but the late Westy front has grown on me and nobody seems to do them right. It will be at H20i this year if I can find a nice car trailer before then.
First night home 2 years ago, had 7,100 miles and it is currently the farthest West it has ever been from Westmoreland.
First drive after the new clutch
At the Cleveland Auto Show(The farthest point the Rabbit has ever been from Westmoreland at a whopping 166 miles!)
Then she got the Abarth
Which required another NOS VW part
This past summer with it's garagemates
Couple weeks ago when it was nice out
