Almost Factory 87 Valver

Post by 1272_el_ex on Thu Dec 29, 2011 8:04 pm

Well I've been a member on here for yonks and I did post up some pics of my car prior to the new format of the website but alas recently I've been a bit slack and not a lot has changed on the car, in fact it has done about 12 miles since September 2010 when I took it to Belgium to a show.

Anyway, what you see here is a bit of a rarity, well at least I like to think so. It is a 1988 (built 1987) Jetta Gti 16v in Monza Blue. The colour in itself is rare but this one has had only two previous owners and has covered a smidge over 42k in its 23 year life. I've not really done much to it apart from having some paintwork done, coilovers and trying on my various sets of wheels.

I hope you like, I'll try to do this chronologically

The day after i picked it up

Rear coilovers on, and yes it was cold fitting them

Fronts on and a set of timeless 'C's' added with 185 35's

At this stage I decided that I wasn't going to ruin the car by rolling or cutting the arches so went for some different timeless rims

then came the paint, the offside had been poorly repainted in a previous life and the lacquer was coming off all over the place so there was only one thing for it

gotta love the quarterlights

Cars came, cars went, babies came and drew on time and cash and the resulting need for a bigger house.

Now a car like this need to be kept in the garage, so that was one of the only requirements of the new house. So what do I do, I buy a house without a garage. After much head scratching I decided that the children didn't need as much grass to play on and embarked on the next project

Now for the whoring pictures

Would of been rude not to try it on the RZ

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

That's pretty much as far as I've taken it so far, so many more things to do to it but time and money are key. In the meantime I still need a realiable daily and whilst keeping with the booty theme I've done this

oh, and then there is the additional project which I'll share pictures of later, don't panic though, it has a boot too.

Whilst I am on photobucket it would be rude not to throw up a couple of my previous Jettas,

The first is my sig, a 1272LX in Capri Green, paid 300 for this car and bar the coilovers not much else (apart from the loan of some wheels from my wheelstore)

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

then there is the girlfirend, the one I should never of gotten rid of, a 91 pearl grey valver with optional extra Jetta (not golf) factory Recaro's. Oh how I kick myself now!

Glad to see you have been loyal to the brand i especially loved you Capri green big bumper that was lush. Myself ive had a bit of an identity crisis over the last year for some bizarre reason i sold my VR GT and switched to 4x4s and Mazdas confused but thankfully ive now come to my senses lol

I was half tempted with your GT but the dash and VR put me off. I think the only other Jetta that I'd sell my one to buy would be RE2's GT but it'd be a close call.

In the meantime I've bought this to tinker with

Always room for more jettas in my life. I've had my fair share of other dubs but the booted variety is the one thats remained the favourite. I am just a fan of the three box design.

Jetta looks stunning on the G60s and BBS. Never thought a Toledo could look so good either, nice work!

Been a while since I posted in here, apologies. Coupe went, again another mistake. However I have recently aquired this which some of you may recognize.
