1984 Volkswagen Jetta GLI FWDReview
My Dream Jetta — This is my dream 84 GLi. I never thought I'd get one in so great a shape. The body is 90% rust free; some surface spots, plus it was lowered and has a big bite underneath where it bottomed out. I have raised it back to stock height. It got through one of the worse NE winters in years with flying colors. This thing picks up really nicely, takes corners like a monster ( until it has to wear snows, then not so much!) and brakes like it should, handles like a dream! I absolutely love driving this car. The smokey color is rare, and when all washed up it is a real beauty.
Pros: standard transmission, uber power on pickup and takes over the road
Cons: electrics could use some tweaking, tends to eat fuel when I lead foot it, but that's par for the course.
