84 Gti — love the car, its lightweight, decent power, and really nimble. great for autocross, ice racing, or just carving up the local roads. lots of potential for mods as well, from oem+ to full blown scca track car. i highly recommend it to someone as there first car, it will teach you the basics of maintaining a car, and reward you with a smile on your face as you accelerate into every corner

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: lightweight nimble

Cons: few eletrical issues, old enough that rust is a factor

Marylou — She was not the best looking of cars but she was fast. I did quite a bit of work on her and she was easy to work on. Nagging suspension issues (bent rear axle was very difficult to fix correctly). After the interior had been removed, she developed a gas smell that would not go away. Engine was strong. With her light weight and Z's (my sponsor and mechanic) engine work, she would beat a 911 through the first couple of gears.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Easy to work on, great to race

Cons: Weak tranny and always smelled of gas

Impressive!!!!!!!!! — Best 75 Bucks, plus fuel pump & filter, good hose down, vaccum out, wax, battery, and by far the quickest one I have driven since its interior is virtually gutted... Performance - acceleration, braking, handling is superior to most. Build Quality - Cosmetics do not do well against the elements. Appearance - Styling needs updating but not too out of place on the road today. Cost of Ownership - 30+mpg, Parts are cheap. Fun Factor - By far it exceedes any car in its class... Pics to come soon, I'll post publicly...

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Handles GREAT

Cons: Needs Interior Restored

Vw 1984 Rabbit Gti — Light, quick, 2-dr that gives as much as you need it to. I regret letting this one go....lots of fun to drive. Never had the chance to perform any upgraes, but it would have made a great project car. Powertrain-1.8L 4-cyl suited with a 5 spd Body-I got lucky finding one without rust Costs-Parts are cheap, easy to work on, if you're so inclined, and easy on gas.

Pros: Cheap thrill

Cons: Low tech

Rabbit Gti, The Little Pocket Rocket Of It's Time... — This car was amazingly fast for it's time. I loved giving the Cavalier Z24's run for their money, even though they had V6, they couldn't catch up with me. I had headers installed and a head with larger valves, the REV limiter removed, some mild body modifications and some extra gauges in the dash. It was fun and at the same time one of the more reliable cars I owned.

Pros: Compact, sporty, great looking, fast, reliable, fun to drive...

Cons: No complaints.
