1997 Volkswagen GTI with more mk4 parts than mk3. Too many mods to list, but basically it’s a 20v 1.8T mk4 Jetta (including interior) wearing a euro-spec mk3 GTI dress. Used to be quite the sleeper, until I did the “harlequin homage” paint work. Nearly 15 years since I built her from the ground up, and still running strong.

Nice Ron
Just sold my MK V TDI and was going to get a Golf R, but ended up with another WRX.

Sold my Jeep JK for $3k less than I paid for it 8 years ago, to a guy who really wanted it.

Picked this one out at the Subaru dealer yesterday. I saved the basket from my jeep, and it fit the Outback perfectly.

Well, I guess I'll let these two fellas figure out who what they are:







Like Mr. TR6, a nice Italian design ( he - Michelotti, mine Pininfarina‎ ), either one is great way to get a little wind in what's left of your hair...

The wife drives a Audi a6 avant. The AWD is great when we are up to our eyeballs in snow.

post em up boy's and tell me what you like or dislike about your 4 wheel ride.

Bought this 2003 Toyota MR2 Spyder from the original owner in Michigan.
A 90 year old dude who was a car collector.
20,000 miles, dead stock, 5 spd. manual, always garaged, never driven in rain or snow.
Fun little rig. Corners like a snake down a rat hole.

Something I didn't expect.

July vacations appear to be a bad idea. very low sales resistance. This is at least the 4th time I bought a car in July on vacation.
Well photos wont upload tonight.
2009 Aston Martin Vantage V8 Roadster . It might show in my garage.
Fun car:-)
