The car runs and drives great. Starts right up every time. Even the turn signals cancel on their own. The original registration where the car last was on the road a the time of the volcano eruption is still in the glove box!!! The only rust I have found on the car is a small spot in the front apron tire well and on the driver side quarter panel that looks like an old repair at sometime in its life. All of which just matches the patina of the car and is of no concern to me. The large 17” tires will rub turning a tight radius. If you prefer not to have them I can replace them with stock smoothies and new tires.
This is one of those cars that doesn't come up often, especially with all of the VW LooseNuts custom work.Don’t wait and miss out! Buy it Now!
