1989 VW Golf MK2 8v

Recommended Posts

Howdy ! 

A buddy of mine recommended your forum as a place where someone might find interest in my old golf. 

I bought this car several years ago with the intention of joining said buddy on track days. 

That never happened. Same old story here, had kids and work schedule changed so I’ve lost all time and interest in finishing the car. 

I tried to get VAG shop in houston to finish it but they flaked.  The other shop that said it would take it last year still doesn’t have space.  At this point I don’t want to deal with it and I can’t find anyone to work on it so maybe one of you can complete the car and i can enjoy racing vicariously through you. 

Pros: full cage with nascar style door bars, fresh white paint, original manual transmission car. All parts have been safely garaged. 

Cons: engine and trans are sitting in my garage next to the car. Interior and exterior trim is long gone. (Except for the single round light grille) also not a gti 

in hindsight I should’ve left the golf unmolested but now my series of bad decisions can be all yours. 

I paid $2500 for the cage and honestly that’s all I’d like to get back.  The cost of the car / paint are a loss at this point. 

That being said, if you feel this is an unreasonable expectation, please let me know and maybe we can come to an agreement. 

If you have any questions or want more pics feel free to ask. 

Thanks for reading!

Mmm, VR6 or 1.8T swap...delightful potential.  I'm a big fan of hot hatches, in particular old VW.  GLWS
