After owning the same GTI for nearly 31 years, if is time for this car’s owner to move on.  Purchased new in Lakewood, California and moving to Colorado in 1991 with the owner, the GTI has covered only 104,000 miles in total.  Over those years, it’s clear that the car has been well taken care of and comes with a complete service log dating back to the original date of purchase in November 1983.  Since it has lived in such sunny places, the paint is a bit rough, but nevertheless, this appears to be a very solid car.
