    I don't know what's wrong with your photos, but I have an unrelated question: do you now, or did you ever, drive an '84 GTI?

    Rich_S Yes, I still have it. It only has 98,000 miles on it. I am the 2nd owner. Do you own one, or have? Fun little cars.

    I bought one as soon as I graduated from college in 1984 and drove the hell out of it for several years. What a great car; hot little engine, five speed manual, four sticky tires, suspension to keep them on the road, good seats, and that was about it. No extra electronics, nothing fancy.

    I eventually sold it to my brother, who totaled it hitting a deer. We then sold it to a kid who was overjoyed to give us $500 for the banged-up killer Rabbit. He showed up with a couple of friends and several gallon milk jugs full of water, in order to keep refilling the leaking radiator while he drove it home. I wonder how his project turned out.

    Yah, too bad you lost it! Bummer. You were in the same mindset as me, back in 1984, that was such a cool car to have, but I had to wait till 2001 to get mine & have had it ever since. It's stock interior, stock outside, but I have heavily modified the suspension, intake, exhaust, etc. I welded up my own coilover suspension, and many other bushing bits. I enjoy the tinkering, and making it my own. In the past I was serious about racing it in SCCA autox, but too busy with the family, so now it's a summer daily driver. Here is an old link to pictures of it. https://forums.vwvortex.com/showthread.php?7012237-Pictures-of-My-GTI
