Well... im halfway through my tour. Been dying to drive my rabbit. Also work on the motor swap. Figured id post some pictures of my current and past VWs (mostly mk1) since im fricken bored and its the most car related thing i can do.

this is my current rabbit. 77 4 door. has a 5spd swap with 1.8 8v right now. Have an aeb 1.8t motor and 5spd trans to go with it sitting next to it back int he states right now and a pretty penny saved from being stuck over here for the frankenturbo kit and other misc goods.

when it was on 13x8 rotas


old 84


next to my buddies old 16v 77

my old 16v 77, was my favorite car before i got in an accident :(



free caddy i scored with a turbo diesel engine. sold caddy to my buddy and sold engine to a suzuki samurai guy

emergency "i need a car now" buy

old $200 buy that ended up getting chopped up due to crunched rear end

my old diesel 4 door with awesome blue interior

and the first rabbit i have ever owned. $200 gti. pile-o-crap but it got me hooked
