This car is priced very fairly in my opinion. Rarity, originality and condition gives value to a car. This one has the 3 of them. I almost purchased an outstanding and very rare 1979 Rabbit GTI 2 years ago for $20k canadian. The only reason why I did not buy it is because it sold before I could get my hands on it. Never under estimate the value of a clean and original car... GLWS

Took her out for a nice ride today.

Several serious offers pending.

I'll miss her. She was my first new car!

I must say the paint job is awesome!

And the Techtonics Tuning 1960cc is a torque monster. Coupled with the 4.25 ring and pinion... the car is really quick!

I wish I could post a sound clip. The engine through the exhaust sounds fricking awesome!

I have had several people PM me regarding my car. A few were really interested. I appreciate those that were honest and declined!

One was over the top interested that was on PM with me a lot. Made many requests of me and I fulfilled them... and then some.

R, please reply to my PM's and emails so I can give another person a chance.

What's with the 4.25 ratio "Canadian" ring and pinion? Do the Canucks know something we don't? What is the advantage of having it? Much nicer than that POS Saber Jet. GLWS.

The 4.25 was very limited and mostly available on a car in Canada. I'm not giving away the whole enchilada!

Vs the OEM ring and pinion it makes for quicker acceleration out of the hole and out of corners.
