In a small town with a low percentage of cars that aren’t GM, two 4 series GTs. Both navy blue. And you know what I don’t hate them sure a good old 3 series wagon would be better, but this is an improvement over a sedan
At Napa because of course it is.
They’re technically for an older VW but I’m sure I can make them fit on the Rabbit. Should I be buying accessories for a car that current isn’t drivible? No but I don’t care.
Put a body on it and register it as the body. In states without inspections this might work. No sir this is not an RZR just a heavily modified 2001 Beetle.
So everyone hates US 5mph bumpers. Mk1 Euro bumpers are expensive, and no bumper looks okay, in fact I like it a lot but I want to do something different. Today I had a thought. What about bumperettes. Specially 70-71 Camaro bumpers.
Old people are weird.
I was going to make a post about how I found a free trailer sitting a block from my house and triumphantly pulled it home on my shoulder. But instead have this video of me after I realized why it was free.
Went to look at that RSX Type-S with my cousin today and it did not disappoint. Very mechanical solid, very clean, and the seller just seemed like a very honest nice guy who was also a mechanic engineer. So he probably wasn’t an idiot. The car drove like brand new. We found 3, no 4 issues which for a cheap car we’re…
Just Rolled Into The Driveway. Had to limp the Rabbit home today after the front right wheelbearing gave up the ghost. It wasn’t very fun but at least the weather was nice and the top was down. I should have seen it coming. In the two(three?) weeks I’ve owned the car I’ve had to start driving with the steering wheel…
Some aren’t. Cabriolet rubber seals are extra not cheap. This is JUST the smoker window seals. A full window seal kit is about 2 grand.
My Brother in Law and I are helping out cousin find a car. He’s 17 or 18 and has saved up some money to buy a cool car. He wants something manual and fun. That Mazda6 I look at least weekend was a bust. It was a V6 not a 2.3, which as it turns out is the same V6 as the Ford Taurus. Now idk about you but I don’t…
Went to the my favorite bar/restaurant and this was sitting near by, had to run over and get pics. I was kinda sad that I couldn’t get the Rabbit in frame with it. The Rabbit is parked right behind my father in law’s big ass Sprinter Bluetech It had maps, and various other road trip stuff I the back seat so some one…
LSPR2018 dates have been announced. Much Excited.
One thing I’ve always wanted to do but never have us make a skateboard wheel shift knob. So today was the day.
I just discovered that I you can fold the rear seats on the Rabbit Cabriolet. I did not expect this at all. Sorry about the terrible photo. Also my spare is a GTI snowflake, which makes me sad that I don’t have 4 more of them.
Got an OEM key for the Rabbit. It had some mk3 style replacements. Found this Mk1 key on eBay for under 20 bucks, got it cut for free at the hardware store.
She’s in the club now. Also got the nasty purple tint off the smoker window that felt good.
Must have been a popular wheel back in the day.
I might be going to look at a car with my wife’s cousin. It’s his first car, he’s been driving the family 2008ish Impala, but hasn’t had a car off his own. Thankfully he wants a manual, and he found something pretty cool.
