Sure is

I am having some cold start issues, but I think that I have figured it out and will get it fixed soon enough.

Oil change is coming soon (if it all works out tonight).

I was having some "leak" issues when it would rain and noticed that the rain drain was clogged with mud and leaves. Cleaning it out fixed the issue and now I do not have to worry about a flooded passenger floor anymore

I picked up a washer motor from an MK:III Jetta and will mod it to replace the small one in my rabbit

Not a bad looking car, though. Looks like it's rusting from the top down, though - doesn't that mean it spent a lot of time near the coast?

It's not my picture, but there is no rust there. I guess the pic was taken at sunset or something. Overall it is in solid shape for a mk2.

Going to do an oil change on this little guy

I already replaced the air filter on it. Got my oil and my oil filter on hand...

I just need to find the oil catcher Where did I put it...

Does everything work in the car? Does it even have a stereo?
