    Rock on man, lookin good. I like the blacked out hatch and bumper like the earlier cars, cool look. Is that your shop you get to work on it in? Looks like plenty of real estate to get up to no good.

    Welcome. Good to see some interest among younger generations. Just do us a favor and bring it out to the car show when they do the benefit for the local nursing home. Some of use older fanatics will appreciate it one day.

    $500? Nicely done.

    The build plate under the hood is chock full of useful info, assuming it's not been modified.

    Sweet score, I recently pick up my first mkii but probably paid too much but always wanted one. I need to find a deal like yours just for spare and hard to find parts. Enjoy your ride.

    no spark is 90% of the time caused by faulty igniter.
    Yes you stoled it at 500. not much rust to be seen.
