Default So the unthinkable actually happened!

And now I'm still crying...

After many months of back and forth I finally let my blazer go to a new home. We are building a new house and I won't have time to properly enjoy the blazer for the next several years with everything going on in life right now so I figured I would see if I could sell it or trade it for a decent but fun DD and save myself a few dollars in gas over driving the suburban. After countless offers most of them being crap and some really cool but not practical I settled on an 09' Wolfsburg Edition Jetta. It's got the 2.0t and 6 speed manual trans with all leather and power everything so it will make for a sporty but economical DD with room to fit people and even more people if I put their bodies in the trunk! It needs a few minor things but nothing major mostly cosmetic and 1 02 sensor. The headliner had been removed and then sat outside and got wet and moldy so I am searching for a replacement.

It is lowered on Solo-werks coilovers and has some sort of rims that I haven't even attempted to identify. Other than that it is really pretty much stock. It's got 92k on the body and trans and has a motor with only 41k and a new clutch at the same time.






These aren't my pic so its a bit dirty but I cleaned it out really well yesterday with the help of my little buddy to get into the tight spots!


And the blazer off to its new home


The guy that has it now works for an offroad shop and has some plans for it and will actually get to wheel it like it should be so that makes me happy and sad because I won't be the one that is playing with it but owell I had to do whats best for my family now. I have already started planning my next build which will be 2wd and low and fast so I can actually get out and play with it more often but that won't be for a bit until we get our house finished and moved in and settled.
