Thank you to hijinx for making me look at old models of the Golf MK2 on Google images.
Words can't express how much I enjoyed looking through that.
And how much I hate the new models...

Now to raise some eyebrows:

It's bad for the economy.




My brother used to make cars out of old scraps lying around from WW2 airoplanes...



Now it's my second cousin, who lives on a farking zeppalin in space.

I envy your cousin.
I always wanted to do that.

Not really sure what this thread was supposed to be. However, I LOVE old VWs. My last one was an MKII jetta, 86 to be precise. Before that o went through a couple B5 passats, and a MKII, 89, GTI that I swapped a 24v into.
Now I have a MKVI jetta, and I hate it. I want to get rid of it and grab a nice c10 Chevy, and another MKI or MK2 rabbit/GTI.

I have a mkIV ( I know, everyone does
) GTI that I've got so much blood, sweat and tears in. Always seems to have something going wrong .. Now it seems the turbo is going night night. Boost is now pathetic. Fun times.

Might need to put a for sale sign on it, sucks.

ETA: Gorgeous rottie

Thank you!
Ditch it and get a VR, or a TDI of course.
I really want one of the v10 tdi Toureags too. One of my customers has one. They're even better than you would expect.

I prefer the 1993-99 Suzuki Swift GTi, or Cultus GTi...same difference.

And I prefer Japanese 90's. They still run really good, not like 90's german.

Yeah, those old Swifts were pocket rockets but I do love the early Golfs also.

I've heard good things about them.. Those are the cayenne-y ones, right?

There's another girl here that I'm friends with that's into German cars and she has a little tdi that she loves. Don't want to give up on VAG cars but dealing with this car is now purely a labor of love, however love doesn't pay for parts!

What are you going to do with the Chevy? If anything, that is.

yep, I have 1993 Maxima the paint has a few chips but it still shines up nice.it runs great and everything still works even the A/C and the electric sun roof.The best thing about it is NO rust.
it has about 235,000 miles and the only thing wrong with it is it needs new shocks.
I`ll take an old car over a new car any day.

I love the 'look' of 90's german cars, especially the Golf, but also BMW's like 323 sports or early M3's. But I need more than just looks to appreciate a car. The japanese built looks, performance and reliability.

I've owned a 1993 Nissan Skyline R32 GTR. Bulletproof engine.....looks are to die for......performance beyond comparison.....handling..my gosh.....reliability...I've seen RB26DETT run up to 230,000kms with just timing belt changes and regular servicing.

I could go on for hours and hours about Jap cars....they are my passion. Only german cars I've owned and/or own are in Gran Turismo and Forza

I guess the supra is cool ..
I think Toyota and bmw were teaming up on something to do with supra?

And the skyline isn't bad looking at all, but I've never driven one. The last one I saw was just left to rot in an Infiniti mechanic's parking lot at my old job.

As long as we're wishing, I'd like a 1970 Ford Torino GT convertible. They are sharp!

Im not a fan unless it's for long journeys...

The things is, urban towns and cities built around horse drawn travel don't at all suit these modern sleek designs.... The round faced car gets two thumbs down from me as a negative fashion trend. Nissan 93 had the early modern sleek front end, and I just feel it was a bandwagon too many other car makers jumped in on...

I think the earlier boxier designs totally nailed it when it came to aesthetically appropriate car design. All they had to do was perfect the engines and inner mechanics, but no, they had to toy around with the aerodynamic casings until they were blue in the face.
