I found this thing on CL. After I check for smoking, knocking, leaking, ect. Do you guys think this would be an acceptable purchase?

Possibly. What are you hoping for? Just a beater? They are not pretty but I imagine easy to work on.

They're a pretty good vehicle. Parts shouldn't be a problem. If there's nothing major with it, for that price, I don't think you can go wrong.

Ahh I remember when vw used to build good cars.

The rabbit gti is possibly the origional sport compact/hot hatch. Great cars lots of fun awesome seats that used to get stolen all the time in the 80s.

I hate that fuel system... But otherwise, not a horrible car. Aircooled VWs are the best though (pre fuel injection).
