My 1984 VW Rabbit GTi. I bought this car last spring for $250, from a guy in my town. I am not sure why he wanted to get rid of t so cheap, as I have gone completely through the car and it is in tip top shape. The only thing I had to do was install a passenger side half-shaft, do a complete tune up, and she runs awesome. Most of the suspension mods were done by the previous owner, but I am not going to complain. It is a 1.8L 8V original GTi motor, K&N filter, header (no cat) Techtonics Tuning 2.25" exhaust w/ BORLA muffler, HOR technologies lowering springs, Boge shocks, Autotech poly suspention bushings throughout, MK2 front hubs and big brakes, H&R track 15mm wheel spacers(rear), Autotech shortshifter, Prothane urethane engine and tranny mounts, H4 headlight conversions w/city lights, PIAA Extreme White Plus headlights, VW/Recaro seats, Sparco harnesses, deleted rear seat/parcel shelf/ Memphis Car audio PR class 3.5" dash speakers/PR class 6.5" door speakers, custom made door cards, Alpine stereo.
This is what she looked like right after I bought her and finally got her into my shop for a good wash, vac and polish job. Not bad for $250 and a clean title!
I bought it primarily to get me back into Autocrossing, and I do love to do it and I had been out of it for a few years since I moved to Montana. Last season I ran two events in Missoula, and a two day Octocross event in Spokane, WA. I took second in novice at the first event in Missoula, and first place and the second event! At the Spokane event, I was the second fastest rookie of the day on sunday, and was headed for first, but I pushed a bit too hard and spun it off the track on my last lap. This is a pic from the Spokane event. The Dubs surrounding my GTi are the spokane members of my car club RENNWAGENS Check us out if you a VW/AUDI person! I hope to run the full schedule here in western MT next year and make a run for some class titles in the fall!
