    I realized that in 1.5 years, I'm going to be considered old by the other old guys on this skiing forum

    Hell yeah!

    I was seriously looking for a '79 Scirocco a while back (just before I had kids). Never worked out though...

    I've owned 4 rabbits....they tended not to last long....I drove fast. Loooved Scirocos but never got ahold of one due to being broke always in my early 20s.

    ...NOTE: "Today I felt old because..." <-- *For me I have to substitute the "Today" with "In 2007" I think = ~4years ago the local Home Depot, up here in Bangor, ME...started placing some of their John Deere mowers...and other things....outside their entrance doors.. Their tractor-mower that tops out just a few hundred bucks over $3k came within $100 or so under the pricetag of my first new car( 1973 Toyota Corolla 2door sedan = $3,3xx). Insurance totalled under $400 and the body was much like a beer can, just take out the interior lining and punch out any dents.... Those were the days.....(in some respects... )

    I had a 82 Jetta GL, that was a fun car. Mechanically they were pretty sound, but all the other shit falls off. Door handles, window cranks, misc nobs, etc ...

    buddy of mine in VT has one.

    this exact car

    http://www.thesamba.com/vw/archives/...t/scan0003.jpg

    He rented a farm house in Mud City, VT off of a couple of ladies in their 80s. Car was in the barn. They hadn't used it in 15 years and just gave it to him. Just needed a new battery, breaks and tune up and it was good to go. It's been his Sunday driver for about ten years now.

    My first car was an '89 VW Golf, and my buddy had an (84?) Rabbit GTI. We had so much fun in that little rabbit. He took the rear seats out to "lighten it up" and we would just tear around in it.

    I remember going to the beach, we had lawn chairs in the back where the rear seats used to be, we would sit in the back and raise the hatch and sit in the back of the car. Funny, I've got a picture somewhere.

    Had an 87' Quantum Syncro GL-5 wagon, perhaps the best car I've ever owned!! Of course it was followed by the 87' Jetta 2-door, car just kept going and going and going......

    My first car was an 87 golf, second car (after I totalled the golf) was an 87 gti which was my favorite car to date. It was white with a sweet black interior with red accents. Unfortunately I totaled that one too (along with a 5 day visit to the hospital). I've had a few others too.

    My wife has had a few VWs too, including a 86 2 door jetta (not too many of those things around) and her favorite; a 97 cabrio.
