The rusty red Jetta... Lives!

Illustration for article titled The rusty red Jetta... Lives!

it drove from the transmission shop (couldn’t get the flange off by hand) under its own power. For all intents and purposes, it is now a car.


What does it need? A lot. To start: brakes all around, sway bar bushings (I think), it clunks in low speed turns so maybe tie rod ends, wheel bearings could use grease, needs fluids changed, wipers, wiper motors need TLC, interior need a deep clean, new steering wheel. And tires, of course. If you really want, I’ll be posting a lot more detail stuff on my car instagram, @hoopty_mk3.
