1997 Volkswagen Jetta 2.0 supercharged - Hello Phattso

VW enthusiasts come in two varieties. There are those who dabble, and then there are lifers. If you dabble you might buy a new Volkswagen, perhaps make a few modifications, and then sell it to step up to an Audi, BMW or whatever. Other dabblers buy everything in one swoop, attend every show and burn themselves out (and their budget) before they ever learn to appreciate the wonders of long-term, multi-generation VW ownership.

It goes without saying, lifers are here to stay. Projects may come and go, but the badge on the grille will say VW whether it's a Mk1 or a Mk4, and was made in '79 or '99.
