1991 Mid-Engine Volkswagen GTI

It can be assumed, however, that the builder of this particular beast got tired of not ever hearing anything but the sounds of a VR6 engine. It’s a great sounding mill, certainly, but there needs to be some sort of insulation – else deafness will ensue.
Yup, this is one heck of a project. Be proficient with a sheet metal brake and a TIG welder before bidding.
It’s on eBay in Pennsylvania with reserve not yet met.
