I'll try to make this short lol. I fell in love with the mk2when I got my 82 5spd around 2000. I was part of the mk2 yahoogroup. They were a great bunch of guys. I remember a gentleman named Dave who lived in Ruskin Florida that helped me get it back on the road. He traveled to North Port never asking for anything. That car had too much rust so I sold it and bought an 83 auto from Williamb. Glad to see he's still around!

With my son on the way that o head to go too. Well, fast forward twenty years and I finally got another mk2. I stopped at a Best Buy in Knoxville and here there was a black 85 in the lot. I we t in and started talking to the owner Mike and he mentioned he had three of them. In October I got my black 82 5spd and couldn't be happier.

Is there anyone here in the Knoxville area?

Welcome and what a beauty you have! I've been forum-abstinent myself for a long time, but MkII is like an addiction. It will never go away :)
PS: I love your smile, see what owning and driving a MkII will do to you :D

Thanks for the replies. I couldn’t have been more blessed to have met Mike and been given the opportunity to buy this one. Although timing was a bit off my fiancé understands my love for them and the dream to own another one after almost twenty years! And, yes, everyone notices the smile lol

It is pretty clean, even the interior. Although she still has her quirks, most of our friends can’t believe what a deal I got!

No, last time was in yahoo groups and I’m pretty sure I used the same name then

Congrats! I myself just purchased a black '82 and I gotta say that I think it's my favorite combo thus far out of all the mk2's I've owned.

Way cool - welcome back. (Had to check and see if that was one of my old cars as I owned 3 different black on black cars in the Knoxville area over a decade ago. In fact, I think I sold Mike one of the 3 cars he currently has too, haha!)

Check the meets section for the annual Tail of the Dragon meet dates. We get together for a long weekend but from Knoxville it's an easy day-trip to catch up with everyone as well. It'd be great to see you there.

Cheers,
billyM

I believe Mike got his 83 first, then the 85 he is currently driving. He bought my 82 originally as a parts car but it was too nice. Lucky for me his son didn’t want this one lol. I saw the meet in April, I work a lot of hours so not sure if I could make it. There is also a guy I work with that has a MK2 but with a 5.0 swap in it.

Yep - it's been something like 15yrs since I sold him that car. Too funny...

Crank out those hours and take a day to join us at the 'Tail if you can - it's a good time.

Cheers,
