VW brochures were always so classy…
It seems like a First Car is actually sort of becoming a real possibility for me this summer. We’ve got my grandparents’ Hyundai sitting in the driveway back home, and my parents offered it to me to use this summer. And I was totally ok with that, because just having a car of my own would be totally cool and unusual for me. But as of about a week or two ago I was talking to Dad and he suggested that while any car is cool, the Hyundai is lacking in actual cool. He suggested, completely on his own, that perhaps the Hyundai could be foisted upon some unsuspecting boring person, and the cash put towards something with balls.
I immediately thought of the MGB-GT or Triumph GT-6 or old Mini that I’ve been dreaming about for years, but then he reminded me that I’d actually have to get places… And not just sit in the driveway in a puddle of oil making engine noises.
That said, if anyone has any leads on an early Golf GTi or something else smallish, reasonably quick, cheap, and full of character, I’d be glad to entertain suggestions.
