The story:

I was looking for a fun autox/summer car in January. I decided I wanted a VW and was looking for a couple weeks and just missed buying a caged supercharged Rabbit. Downest keeps telling me to get a CRX or a Civic. Then he links me to an 88 DX being sold by some guy name Agentjam. I read the post and decided I liked what I saw. Emailed him Thursday and Friday. By Saturday morning I was on the phone with him and driving the 4 hours to Philly with a Bugdet truck and car carrier. Turns out this is a well known car and I got it for a sweet price.

I guess Jon's still sleeping, we had a bit of a night last night :p This car is supposed to get a non-grinding tranny today too, I was hoping to get started around 9 or so...

Love the color. No door belts (nice) GREAT engine work!

'90/91 front bumper, and taillights. J's racing or similar bumper lip EDM rear wing.

Done. 8)
We're looking for the tails, but I think the bumper is staying. The PO cut the hole into one side there, but it looks really well done. We haven't done much to the car beyond clean it, remove the MSD, and drive it. It's really fun, but really damn loud, it's more of a cop magnet than my car! This week it should get a new glass pack tip like Jared and I have to try and quiet it down a little bit. I'm also going to clean the bay up today while we have the tranny out and Jon isn't looking. Take out the MSD (not hooked up anyway), charcoal canister, etc, and give it a good scrubbing with some simple green.

We'll get some more pics today when she gets a bath, and we'll be going to the JVG meet in Albany tomorrow, lots of pics!
