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.

If You Want A Drivers Car This Is Lotsa Fun With Huge Tunning Potential. — I love My Jetta GLI All the MK1 goodness of the rabbit tranfered into a jetta. this thing handles exceptionaly well (for being a quarter cewntury old) and its small size and personality made me fall in love with this thing and yes its a daily driver. the mileage is really good provided i keep my foot outa the throttle and braking is spot on.

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

Pros: Its a Volkswagen, Its built in Germany, Its  a quarter Century old and it still hauls ass!

Cons: no A/C in the Vegas Heat!

One Of The Best Handling Older Front Wheel Drive Cars Next To The Rabbit Gti — it's black. it's a sedan. it looks like a polish mafia car. it's my baby. I bought it for 700 dollars. it made many trips back and forth to Chicago and returned highway mileage in excess of 37 mpg. It has noooooooo rust!!!

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

Pros: it revs to 9000+ rpm stock bottom end.

Cons: it's 25 years old.

My First Car — It was wonderful. It sounded like a race car, but had no bite. It ran well when I took care of it. I ran it into the ground and didn't appreciate it, but it was wonderful.

Pros: Reliable.  Fun to drive.

Cons: Old.

Vw Jetta Glithe Boxy Yet Sporty Coupe From Wolfsburg — In 1984 - the last model year for mark 1 Golfs & Jettas - VW launched the Jetta GLi, a two-door coupe featuring jetronic fuel-injection, a 1.8 litre engine, stylish VW snowflake rims, and a black and tan leatherette interior.

Pros: lightweight, easy to modify, very stylish

Cons: limited interior space. general cons to do with older cars. I had two GLIs which shared no faults with each other.
