Um how does that work? Free 84 GTI?.. my hope is to pickup either an aircooled dub, a rabbit or a clean mk3 2dr next spring and drive it home from the PNW

No not free. I've got an 84 GTI here in Pendleton Oregon with a 2.0 16v swapped in, 4 wheel discs etc. Put her up for 2700$ and apparantly rust free straight bodied (but still needs paint) rabbits are so common in the PNW that it hasn't been worth anyones time to go the 200 miles to pick this one up. (I"m in the middle of nowhere cowboy country, if it ain't a truck the locals don't want it)

If its still here this fall, I'm gonna start a full monty resto on it.

oh baby those wheels are so....

so not there.

Taste is taste and everybody has a right to taste---but that doesn't mean some taste just sucks big time..
Black wheel suck big time as perfectly illustrated in this photo.
Perfect.

But your choice will let you build better parts for a fraction, and if you put a motor other than a heavy inert lump of V8 in it, go faster, and have more fun.

All these years and you can't even get that right...
I'll try again: beating on anything out in the woods is fun...

But that doesn't mean people can't have MORE fun with some things which are MORE FUN.

Try to get away from simple 'Merikun black white thinking, and if you can't do that at least don't attribute simplistic shit like that to me.

John... in no way do I think simplistic things of you... but realize like opinions, dicks and ideas, everyone's ideas of what they are are different.
