I swear to god you change cars faster the ppl change their undies.

That is an awesome car. Buddy of mine is curently restoring his only when he's done he should be close to 500whp. Even stock those lil AWD buggers are quick.

Looks like its in really good condition. There was a guy in my high school that had one of these and it was really quick, but it was suffering from cancer pretty bad as most cars that have seen salted roads for many years do.

honestly i think my jetta is faster 0-60...but this thing does move once it gets going...its heavy as shit...like pushing 4000 pounds, its 200hp at the crank, and figure with 25-30% hp loss due to the drivetrain its maybe 150 whp

but the awd is fun..it corners better than the jetta even on the stock tires...can't wait to get some good wheels and rubber on it

It doesn't take much to get those cars making some really nasty HP. I'm right there with ya on the AWD + Corners though. Love slinging my fat ass A6 around them. Still miss my Jetta though.

Funny that your alltrack weighs as much as my A6. I wouldn't have thought that.

That sounds more like it. A little closer to the weight of an MKIV Jetta.

neew wheels should be here soon (had to pre-order)
once the tax return gets here the celica is going into the paint shop and getting the front seats reupholstered...then i think im going to sell it...lol

i should be able to double my money on it

(then i can either get another cabby or get a caddy (rabbit truck) or both
