    Just wondering if there are any other water cooled VW fanatics out there?

    If so, whatcha got?

    I have as a daily driver, an '87 8v GTi. Dual exhaust manifold, Techtonics downpipe and full exhaust. H&R street suspension(inch and a half drop).

    Was supposed to be cheap transportation to save wear and tear on the suburban. $1300 car. :-) But, I cant leave anything alone.

    I've had 2 and will have another some day (maybe an air cooled Karman Ghia.) Had a '79 Rabbit diesel pretty good transportation for $200. Left to die in the ice of Minnesota. Recently traded away my '82 Rabbit Cabrio for a sweet welder (grenaded the clutch in the Rabbit and didn't want to fix it.) Still miss that thing on sunny days. It had a GTI 8V in it. Top drop daily driver, got 33+mpg, just had to be comfortable in your masculinity to drive a powder blue bunny convt. Oh well. I'm always looking for another.
