well the past week or so i have been having alot of problems with my 96 jetta.. from transmission woes... to AC not working.... well last Thursday when my car was immobile, i contacted a friend who had a car in storage and i told him that i would buy it from him... well without further wait... here are the pictures




The Car is a Toyota Corolla FX-16. its a front wheel drive beast. the engine has been compleatly rebuilt, and it has a race clutch in it... there is no AC, and no power steering.... it has a brand new set of Volk TE-37's... this car is so much fun to drive...

SICK! I don't know why I though FX-16's were RWD. What year is it? Appears to be in very good shape.

So you got rid of a car cause the A/C isn't working, to buy a car that has no A/C

I think having a car without A/C in Vegas can cause a person to spontaneously combust.

Sounds to me like the Jetta wasn't driveable and he needed a way to get around so picked up this car.

sounds to me like he should have taken the $$$ used to buy the little white Toyota and get his Jetta fixed properly.
they he would have a nicely running jetta and AC.
but hey, thats just my opinion.

just to have the jetta break down the next week with something else stupid... like a clutch for example, or shocks.
and the ammount that i got the car for... i could have done nothing with the jetta... the rims alone on my fx are worth more than i paid for the car

That is so funny. Funny as in a funny ha ha kinda way, and not a funny whackamole kinda way.

fx16 was a cool car when it came out. The white paint job is pretty hot!
I think a few drift kings have converted these to RWD, that's probably where someone got the impression they were RWD.
Hey, why don't you just add

You have to bring that to the starbucks thursday night get together. I want to see it in person and takes some pics.

Why not, theres a Yugo, now an FX, hell I'll bring my Pathfinder I use for work........we'll make it a NON-VW GTG!

On a serious note, besides our beloved VW's, we need something reliable every now and then..........good deal on the FX hamster! http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
