“Right now I have 3 VW's that couldn't be more different and a Porsche with a VW motort. The GTI is the practical one, the Syncro is the oddball beast that I love and the Cabriolet was my first car that's still hanging around.”
1969 Porsche 912
VW motor, bad paint, PCA members would be aghast, I love it.
I always wanted a GTI and when I needed a "practical" that was safe enough for my newborn daughter, 4 doors and an automatic was all I needed to sell my wife. It's not the VR6 5 Speed that I wanted in high school, but it's way better.
