1988 Jetta GLi – “Blackbird”

My pride and joy. In 2001 I bought her from a kid in Milton that had slid off the road in the winter, caught the front wheel on a rock, and put her onto her side in the snow. Spent a summer swapping parts around with a donor car at my Dad’s place and got her back on the road. She brought me (and sometimes my wife and daughter) to shows for years until the clutch started slipping and she got parked when I went back to college. Unfortunately I never found the time and resources to get her back on the road (sitting for years had caused a bit of deterioration) and I figured she’d just keep wasting away in my possession so I let her go in 2016. Two weeks later she came back and I committed to getting her rolling again.
