      I was working on my Fox today replacing the valve cover gasket. Your engine bay is nearly identical. Don't forget to check your intake boot for cracks. They tend to crack in the "accordion" section when they're no longer soft.
      (sheriff)Early, I though you said this was a drug possum.
      (Early) Sure, I drug him from the ditch.
      (sheriff) I wish you told me that before you sold him to me.

      I know in general it's not anything really special, but I think that makes it all the more worthwhile to preserve it as many people just wouldn't care and would probably mod the hell out of the car.
      Interesting, I had never really thought of the 1.9 before. It has an odd displacement. According to Wikipedia, it's 111hp, similar to the 1.8 110hp but with a cat. I can't think of any other 1.9 gas engines from VW.

      You're putting this on the line using a 1987 Audi?
