87 Pewter Gray Cabriolet

Post by jakemoore89 » Tue Sep 21, 2010 6:55 am

I just recently bought a Grey 1987 Cabriolet, and I decided to share it with the community. Car was bought for 1500, seems a little steep, but I didn't mind paying the cash for it.

Car is completely stock, bought it from a older man, who only drove it on weekends to Chattanooga.

Specs:
1.8L JH CIS Motor
K-Jetronic Computer


Work Done:
Changed Spark Plug & Plug Wires
New Exhaust :D
New Distributor
New Battery
New Air Filter
Changed Oil & Oil Filter
New Alternator
New V-Belts


Needs Done:

Motor Mounts :cry:
New Top
A/C Blower Motor :|
Replace Brake Pads
Golf Ball Shifter knob :D
Needs Timed
New Windshield Washer Motor




Since I've owned the car, Its had wonderful gas mileage. I'd like to get more power out of the car, and have read about people saying not to turbo a 8v.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Now on to the Pictures. :mrgreen:

It is at that. Keep an eye on their website, there is talk of it moving to the new VW Factory there as it should be opening at the turn of the year.

Cool! It's rare to see one now and you have one side-by-side. :)

I bump into something like this yesterday. It's cool to see 2 rabbits side by side.

Yeah I know. When I first got mine, I really wanted a gti. Since I couldn't find one, the cabby was the next best thing.
