In case our new Mk2 project car didn't already make it obvious, we've got a soft spot for the 2nd gen Golf. Seemed a good day to share another one we've found up for sale in our forums and also on Craigslist . This great-looking '91 GTI 16V is currently owned by Project R32  and is up for sale at what seems like a very reasonable $7800.

What's so special about the car? Well, in addition to being one very clean specimen of the late Mk2 GTI era, it also sports a very clean look and tasteful list of upgrades including 6-speed conversion... Well, let's just let the owner's list of mods speak for itself.
