FYI... my old high mileage white 86 GTi was donated to the LA Salvation Army. license TAM18
some of the specs on the car...
2021cc Techtonics Motor, ABT ported head and cam, dual outlet manifold/downpipe, Gillet exhaust, Neuspeed shortshift kit, rebuilt 9A tranny with a pretty fresh Velocity Stage II slip kit filled with MT90.
body straight, no sunroof, no powersteering, A/C not working.
maybe someone on Vortex will get it/find it???

Yea, why did you donate that thing? I would have paid you whatever tax break your going to get (less than 1k, Im guessing...) for that thing.

Re: FYI for those in SoCal (Craig_Heitzman)

Ahhhhh... SLO my old stomping ground!!! Is the Cal Poly club still doing autocrosses?
Anyways... the motor had tons of miles ( 255k) and one day just started spittin oil, making lots of noises, wouldn't hold idle,etc. Felt like it was WAY out of tune.
I donated mainly b/c it was taking up space on my folks' driveway, I was getting tired of working on it, and didn't have time to do the whole selling thing.
Plus... I want to work on my turbo wabbit project.
