1st. 1991 Chevrolet Lumina 3.1L. Bought for $500 when I was 14, let my brother drive it till I turned 16. Used to for 2 years until I turned 18. By the time I got rid of it, it was running on 3 or 4 of the 6 cylinders, suspension was shot, brakes were failing, tires bald, trans slipping, but it would still take you anywhere. Ended up trading it in for cash for clunkers to help my dad get his new car and I got the Golf.

2nd. 01 Golf GLS. Bought at 94k miles for $5,500 (talked them down from $8,800). Learned a lot about cars and Volkswagens from it. Wrapped it around a telephone pole after a wet corner... had 111k miles on it. Ended up getting $5,4xx.xx for it ($5,9xx.xx if I didn't have a deductable)

3rd and Current: 1987 Jetta Coupe. Unknown miles on body and engine, Odo says 74k for the GTI interior. Currently working to get it a new engine. Old one works fine I just want a more fun engine :D

Mods, forgive me if there is already a thread like this. If there is, feel free to delete or merge this one.

Post up your past rides. Does not have to be mk4 or even VW for that matter. Let's see some before and after's if you've got them. I'll start this off with a few of mine-

1986 Porsche 944-

I really liked this car, but it was automatic.... do yourself a favor and don't ever buy an automatic Porsche.

1971 SuperBeetle-

Awesome car, great head turner, but very unsafe... I sold it after I almost got into a wreck with it... I still miss it though

1993 Mercedes 190E-

Would have never gotten rid of this car if it weren't for the fact the wiring harness shorted out.

1994 BMW 325IS-

Hated the car, Bimmers are always a big ass money pit, but it looked good, haha

As you can see I like German cars. I have had a lot more cars than this, but this last one was my all time favorite, and I got it for a steal-

Sadly, this is what happened to her-

Her name was Sally, and I think the only car that I ever truly loved... I was very sad when I lost this car....

omg...Sally was beautiful!

Well...I am showing off my past rides. lol.

My V-Dub and truck have been my first, and only rides I've had. Unless you want to start talking about other four wheeled motorized machines...

350 warrior, 96' Banshee 350, 06' Banshee 700, 01' Raptor 660R, 07' Raptor 700R, 07' Can-am Kym-Co 150 and some shitty go-kart from when I was little. :p

If I could I would buy them all back. Besides the Can-Am...I still have that and the go-kart went to the crusher after I blew out the clutch and could never find a place who sold a clutch like it had. Motor was going to blow anyways....I learned how to drift with my go cart. I had an opportunity to buy the warrior back last year, but the shyster I sold it to wanted 2x more because he said he put money into it. I know his kids, and he didn't put no money into it...maybe he put money into his power bag :p

my first car was a 1994 Geo Prizm. i put the car through hell in the snow and it never let me down in the 6 months i had it. i then sold it and purchased a 1998 Chevy S-10. It was RWD 4cyl. 5spd. it wasnt powerful or fast at all but it got me everywhere i needed to go with no major issues. biggest thing i had to do was change the water pump and on that it was a piece of cake. i used it as a truck and hauled a lot with it. i traded it last october on my current car. 2000 Jetta VR6.

98 S-10
