This is when I first got the car.
It is a 1990 jetta coupe, 5 speed, ac, never been into a accident and never been modified. It has only 94,000 miles on the odometer.

ImageHere is story about this car from the time I bought it until now. It is a 1990 volkswagen jetta coupe, 1.8L digifant 8 valve engine, 5 spd, a/c, sunroof and in decent shape. Found this car while browsing for another car to replace the other jetta (a bad deal from a friend that took the car back and still owes me 200 dollars). The owner said it did not run it could be some electrical problems, and also it sat for two years, which I thought at worse it could need a engine swap. He said I could purchase for 500, which I did. First day I got it home I went throught the car and found many problems, wires burnt, melted and touching each other, missing door vapor barriers, dead battery, missing shift bushings and a few minor missing screws. Charged the battery (thank god, I did not need to buy a new one. Replaced the messed up wire harnesses and return the rest of the wiring back to stock. Replaced the shift bushings and various other small minor items. Put new plugs, plug wires, cap, rotor, gas, fuel filter, oil, oil filter and air filter. The fired up the car for the first time earlier this year and glad to find out the motor is good shape. Put in some custom gauges. Now I am dealing with smog, did not pass the first time, but with the tt exhaust with borla muffler, new high flow cat, new oxygen sensor, dual down port exhaust manifold and downpipe and new hangers and gaskets the car will pass smog. Just installed big bumpers.
Here is picture from when I got till now and also some of the parts I have either installed or going to install. The car only has 95,000 original miles and the engine and transmission have never been out of the car.

I am happy today. My car passed smog and also installed my neuspeed short shift with power weight. Next I have to replace the master cylinder with a 22mm and upgrade the fronts brakes to 11" and convert the rear drums to disc.

just the stock MK2 Jetta ones, black face. i found an early mk2 guage cluster with the markings for the MFA in a junkyard a couple weeks ago. i think i'll just swap those out and call it good, though.
