      fuel cell is 100% sealed from the inside of the car. uses factory fill location. there is bolts to remove the filler tube if you ever needed to as well
      and there's extra struts and strings and random syncro bit....

      I love the things your shop does. If I ever have a shop build one of the ludicrous ideas I come up with for a VAG vehicle, it will be you guys.

      Very interested in this. At first glance, price seems good too. Sadly, until August, it's about 10,000 mi too far away for me to pursue. Good luck with the sale.

      This car was built in California if I remember correctly, not the east coast.

      Plus those aren't even Recaro's.

      those seats are Recaros, the same as most vw seats are built by Recaro, however these never were "Trophy Recaros" as those would be LS-A check out the shoulder area and head rest supports

      these are "Sport seats" the same that came in the GTIs from 83-89


      anyway can we see some pics of the parts that count...underside

      Looked at this car when it was FS in the Santa Cruz mtns a few years back. Kinda regret passing on it... It had some issues, mostly minor ones, and it was going for cheap. Good candidate for a Zonker replica!

      sorry for the delays. sorry its not clean either.... been so busy and its been sitting for a few week. but started up without a jump and ran mint this morning when I pulled it in the shop. also, has ZERO leaks after sitting for weeks and as you can see, NO rust under the car at all and the pinch welds are perfect.

      Checked this car out today at NLS's shop. Totally worth the money. I agree great Daily or awesome start
      for a project car. Old school 16v turbo sounds about right to me in this ride. If I didn't have so many
      cars I would own this without question.

      Btw great meeting you guys today. Super cool race cars and cool dudes at NLS

      Wow I'd be all over this as a transplant for my current rusty project but I'm in no position to buy as I live 5k miles away. I'm planning a move back to the mainland by the end of the year, if you still have it then (which I doubt) I may be calling you josh. Btw, remember me? Charlie who used to work at NGP. I'm pretty sure you bought a 16v tranny off me many years ago.

      i figured that bottle had to be something with the all wheel drive.. any idea on mileage , condition of the syncro parts - wasnt this car out west in california / PNW - then made it way east?

      i remember build thread 5+ years ago i think.

      car has 82K on it.
      drivetrain, sorry I do not know. but shifts and works very smooth. with newer clutch
      it was in cali, then CT now here, and driven here.
      I drove it this morning because someone is coming to look at it today, runs and drives VERY smooth. if I had the money to buy the new toy I want, I'd keep this! its a fun little car, needs more power but will be a great toy to play with for someone for sure.
