Here it is...it's no Jetta Coupe...but it was $400...

87 16v GTI...







Thanks goes out to Justin for keeping his eyes peeled out there for a good deal...PS...the 16v is really clean and will be for sale sometime in the near future...the guy that I bought it from said that he's pretty certain this wasn't the original engine as he's taken the head off of it and the cylinders were REALLY clean...

Re: Can you say - Monster Garage??? (bizzeau)

PS...I've got 6 months to complete my project...so...Derek...I'm probably going to be giving you a ring here and there...
Oh...and what color is that? Can anyone tell? Is it Tornado, Laser, or Indian red...I think it's too light to be Indian Red, but it appears too dark to be Tornado Red...I want Tornado Red...and I'm gonna get flamed for this one...this car doesn't get any tint...I've already got the picture of the completed project in my head...I believe there is tint on it already, and I'll be stripping that first thing...

Nah...it's not "running" right now...he's tracked it down to "possibly" the fuel pump...which shouldn't be too difficult to repair...and he really wanted to get rid of it fast...the "starting" price was $500...

87 16V GTI is Torndo Red.. look in the trunk, under the carpet, maybe on the fuel pump access door will be a sticker and the code should be LY3D
