This car was my sister's, but I still had a lot of fun with it. This car was my first experience with the way that a turbo can transform an engine, & I can't wait to play with another (turbo that is). I drove this car for a bout 6 months while my sister was at school, & it is the reason why I bought The Rabbit, when I realized that I was going to have to give it back & start driving The Beast again. My sister sold it in 10-00 for $1,100, with a blown head gasket, & as near as I can figure (odometer didn't work), about 350,000 miles. I hated to see it go, but I wasn't going to give her that much for it. ;-)
