Default rocket 1.0

alright, i need to start a thread for my newest addition... or soon to be newest addition. rocket 1.0. i'll give you a little background as he is a work in progress.

1991 vw gti, completely rebuilt xflow engine... i have no idea how many miles are really on him. we most recently have acquired a real headliner (you have no idea how hard these are to come by!), recently installed new clutch and short shifter, sway bar... tons of other stuff that i just don't know about... as it's really my boyfriends car, but he is handing it over to me to use as my daily driver. he got this about 5 years ago and has done every bit of work on it.

currently not registered, but we are aiming to get him on the road this month. i fell in love with this car the moment i saw it, we have tossed around selling it because at one point in the past 3 years it looked like it was just never going to run again. i couldn't let nick do that because i know how much this car meant to him... so we kept it... and it sits in our garage waiting for the day when we can get it legally back on the road.

recent purchases:

JOM coilovers
OEM hardware for doors, visors, etc
headliner we had to have freighted to us from oregon
shaved front fenders

still needs:

new tires
paint
install the coilovers when they arrive
registration and needs to pass inspection (should be no problem)

here is a picture from last summer, unfortunately i don't have any more recent ones, but we will have more soon. i can not WAIT to start driving this. it's totally balsy, has a great sound and for some reason a sirius subscription that we don't pay for.
