One of my favorite 80s cars. Any photos to post?
Back in June I sold my Focus ST, then with some arm twisting from my wife, I ordered a 2021 Wrangler Unlimited Willys edition in Sarge Green. Aside from the Willys package, I kept it very base (V6, 6spd manual, soft top, & crank windows), with the tow package being the only other real option.
Well last week it finally arrived.
Unlike our past JK Wranglers, this one won’t be a daily driver, but our 3 seasons / weekend ride.
Our Golf Sportwagen 4motion with 6spd manual. While not quite as fun to drive as our old Focus ST, in the performance sense, it’s still enjoyable. It is also far more practical with the AWD and extra room. We’ve also been averaging 35 to 37 MPG on the freeway (75 mph), and better in the 55 mph zones.
I run Nokian Hakkapeliitta R3 tires on her during the “winter months”, which here means early November to late April
Our Grand Cherokee (ZJ), 318ci V8, 242 TC swap, 3” lift & 31s. She’s served as my year round runabout for the last 5yrs.
Yamaha MT-09. I don’t get out as much as I’d like, but for the type of riding I do (solo rides that are only a couple of hours long) she fits the bill. I came up on sport bikes and have had a couple of Harleys. I think I’ll stick with motorbikes like a sporting standard (ie naked bike), but my next one will definitely have cruise control.

I have a sweet spot for wagens. I wish VW would have dropped the GTi engine in there and sold it but they never did. Not many wagon or hatchback options that also have a fun factor for the IS market. They all want those SUVs or Crossovers

For all the **** people talk about them , the ZJ's were decent trucks, and most of them seem to still be on the road....
You gonna mod it ?
I'm with you; my old Wrangler YJ is the vehicle that I seem to drive most often; it's a leaf spring Jeep with no creature comforts at all ( except for the remarkably comfortable seats) but it's fun as hell....
Just brought her home a few weeks ago, need to post a few more after my add on mods.
2019 Mustang GT Premium convertible.
My 2007 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon. I just scrapped the soft top and picked up a new(er) hardtop off of a 2017. Next up is a roof rack.
Primarily, my wife crazy.
Secondarily, 2016 Toyota Sienna
Yeah the pathfinder did. All fixed now, welded floorboard and pacesetter headers/new exhaust.
As do I, especially ones that still have a manual trans. Just about any sedan or hatchback I’ve owned I would have preferred an wagon option had one been available. Like our Focus ST. For some reason Ford offers it in an estate/wagon over in Europe, but sadly not here in the States.
I agree 100% about a GTI wagon, or even a Golf R estate/variant.
Apparently, from what I’ve read, a popular mod with the Sportwagens 1.8T engine is to bolt on a turbo from the 2.0 GTI engine. I guess it’s as simple as bolting it on & a flash tune. I’ve also read that they (GTI turbos) aren’t hard to come by because a popular mod for them is to upgrade to a turbo from a Golf R.
Heck I was thinking about getting a set of used 18” Austin GTI wheels, for summer mode, before I even got mine. Now think I’d rather go aftermarket.
Example off google images
Heck even the JDM has some wagons I’d be interested in. Like the Subaru Levrog STi wagon.
Where’s this Porsche of yours?
I drive a Tundra and CBR600RR.
