i know this will be a rethread but as new members are joining regularly it might be worth starting a new one.

ill get the ball rolling with this "quality" piece of japanese engineering i owned from 1998 to 2001.This was a rare thing in the u.k, costing equivilent of around £50,000 ($85,000 ?) when it was new in 1985. it was about the fasting thing on the road at that time eating 911`s. Unfortuately the British climate took exception to them.
I did have some fun with it first though.

Would i buy another?...................naw.

Humm, not sure if I have any pictures of my Corolla and the F150. I'll have to dig around and see. For now, here are two place holders of cars that look just like mine did, but are not mine:D

1993 Toyota Corolla LX

A yummy 115hp 1.8L, but would run on cat pee if I wanted it to. Still in service, sold to my father before I bought the Passat.

1984 Ford F150

Two fuel tanks, 4X4 and V8 powwwwwwerrrrr! Totaled in an ice storm, sold as scrap, rebuilt, still in service although not with me.

1989 Buick Reatta - I got 249,000 miles (at the time it was in the top 5 of high mileage Reattas on the Reatta database) on it before I blew the tranny for the 3rd time and decided to part it out (tranny replacement was more than the car was worth) and got my Passat. It brought me out to California from Maryland, actually. I may buy another one someday.

here are my two past cars

2000 Mustang GT - before

after, thanks to a semi driver that wasn't paying attention

it was depressing going to this...

although i still have it with 175k on it, damn thing wont die!

as much as i love my passat, i still really miss my mustang :(
