GT Up and Go: 1987 Volkswagen Golf GT

The MarkII Volkswagen Golf (1985-1992) was offered in a variety of trims, starting with the lowly base, and continuing up in equipment to the C, CL, GL, GT and finally the GTI trim.  Prices for the super sporty and hip GTI model are high, but you can get into a Mk II GT for pennies and it’ll offer a almost the same of shhhportiness from the GTI’s fuel injected 1.8liter 8V watercooled engine and a 5-speed manual box.  Today’s example has some serious digits in the odometer…but there was a time when VW’s basic economy car were reliable and rugged.  Find this 1987 Volkswagen Golf GT offered for $2600 in Tarzana, CA via craigslist.
