    Jetta No. 3 - the demise of a GTi

    Post by Geeman on Sun Mar 21, 2010 11:01 am

    Erm... whoops!

    This '90 GTi 8v was on eBay in Grimsby, so I couldn't just let it pass!

    Got it for a reasonable price... and it's running a Mk3 2.0 8v engine with full 5-stud conversion. It smokes it's tits off, but I'm not after it for its' engine. I'm taking the bits off it I need for the 16v, then it'll go back up for sale as a 'running project' - I'm sure it'll get snapped up by someone on E38. If not, I'll just weigh it in.

    I managed to get it up the drive under it's own steam as the 'non-runner' needed a bsttery and the throttle cable reconnecting at the pedal. Simples!

    I had thought about setting a car-lot up...

    But then I remebered I'm getting married... soon!

    Forgot about that bit with 5 cars on the drive though... Whoops.

    Lee... I might be selling it, not sure yet. Got a spare grille/light/slam panel combo now.

    P.S. - what happened with the silicone hose you got for the bike-carb project? Gonna be running bike carbs on the 16v...

    Yep... I waved it goodbye two weeks ago.

    I contemplated keeping the doors, but they were all rotten at the bottom.

    Took everything else I could off it... my garage is chockablock now!

    I am so behind the times these days! Is the base car the Jetta GT you picked up a little while ago? (If so, I may redeem myself slightly in the knowledge stakes??)
