Original no ac car, from Vermont, cleanest mk2 I've ever owned rust wise. Has a few dings, dent in right from door, but nothing horrible.
I've owned this car for 8 years, it was an n/a diesel when I got it, had a blown head gasket. I am the second owner of this car. I swapped it to vr and drive it for a couple years na, then went to turbo in 2011. Stored indoors every winter since I bought it. This car has gone through many evolutions and all of the bugs have been ironed out. I've driven it to several h20s, waterfests and even a sowo, which is an 1100 mile one way trip from my house. Made it with no issues. It is a seriously fast street car that I drive daily all summer with little to no problems, or at least nothing I didn't cause. When I started out I knew roughly what I was looking for in a car and this car surpassed my vision.
I'm only selling this because I've got my eye on my next project, and this has to go to make way for it. If I had to start counting I'm sure I have over 25 grand into this car the way it sits. I never expected to get it all back. I'm asking what I think is fair for this car. lowballers will be ignored. Album of pics here http://imgur.com/a/kUCPk more can be taken upon request. Car is located in Burlington Vermont, will drive to meet if deposit is given up to 4 hours from here.
