1975 VW Rabbit. Made in 1974. Serial number 1722 -- one of the first Rabbit/Golfs ever made (yes...it was that early!) It was one of the first cars EVER with passive restraints: knee bolster, shoulder belt...but no lap belt. It should've been crushed at the factory as a pre-production piece of shit.
The car was already tired when I got it. The carburetor would not stay screwed down. The CV joint rumbled something awful. It blew motor oil through the PCV like nobody's business.
I took it from the USA to Canada but forgot to mention it to Customs. Like who would car about a $1500 car anyway? The car got seized by the RCMP. They forced me to take it back to the USA...it would've been more humane to take the piece of shit (yes, I say it twice) out back and shoot it to death...
