Worst Build Ever... Jetta

Well here she is. Mainly pointless, maybe a couple laughs when I am done..

EDIT: TOTALED as of 3/21/12, Insurance is buying her

Got it like this, pic at grandparents


Change oil, K&N air filter, oil filter, vacuum, etc. Got it for under half of KBB value.

Later on





Flexing Pics, parked in my driveway... Did not know it was flexed out until this morning (still has swaybar on and rear suspension is a trailing beam so it sucks for articulation)



Then did the first "mod" took off mud flap on passenger side, new radio and speakers, then dented the oil pan (pics to follow)







Once I opened up the oil pan




And Another Alaskan commute

lol yep, vision checks. Want to buy a Tacoma, but now I will have to keep it for 2.5 months to drive to UAA then sell it before I go to the Philippines. Buying a Taco when I get back. Only reason I bought was dad threatened to take all my money away if I bought a truck...

Nothing mechanically, just front wheel drive in Alaska... And I love to 4wd and be self reliant, (I get stuck a lot at my job, a little ski resort.

Hills, snow, ice, (they don't salt roads here, lucky if plowed or graveled) for 5 months here, just not my thing. I fit in the driver's seat only, head hits in the passenger seat... 6'4" I just want a truck, don't mess with my excuses.
