As usual, I never really plan out my next purchase. Cars just fall into my lap, and I hit the ground running with a new project. In this case, with the death of my poor 318ti, I needed something to take to a number of big car shows this year, as well as get me around town. Enter the Jetta. This car was a two owner vehicle, with the most recent owner having had it for 15 years. It is bone stock (for now) and although it's rough around the edges, it'll end up shining quite nicely. The simple plan is to make it shine, lower it, and add some practicality for long road trips. The long term plan? Let's see how deep my wallets are.
