    Its a 92 GTI, picked her up in Saint John today. Body and floor are really good, has a few mechanical problems, but it definitly has all kinds of potential!

    I think I'm going to resist the temptation and keep this one close to stock

    Its an 8v right now, although its getting the bigger brakes next week, and then later down the road I'll pop in a 16V engine I've got kicking around. Not too many stock 16V gti's in this area, let alone still in good shape. I looked at one last weekend and it was a pile of shit. It had swiss cheese for a floor and buddy blew out 4 litres of oil driving it down to show me it:rofl:

    One boosted VW is enough for me. This one's a daily driver.

    I paid a grand for it, but it needs some new parts. I'll probably end up putting close to another grand into it before its where i want it to be.
