Oooooooh that is nice! I'd buy it before you could blink. Might have to rob a bank Monday morning. You won't have any problem selling that! Gorgeous! NGP built my motor and suspension on my MKIII Jetta 5 years ago. Love MKIIIs and MK4's. How long did you own it? Lived in Montgomery County 16 years before 9-11. Back in New Jersey. Yuck!
