Ultimate Survivor: 1998 Volkswagen Jetta Turbo Diesel Manual

This next car is less about what it is and more about what is ISN’T.  It isn’t another late 90s Volkswagen with faded paint and oxidized plastic.  It isn’t another diesel VW that doesn’t run because the cost to repair is greater than its worth.  And it isn’t another super slow diesel equipped with a slow shifting slushbox.  This car isn’t a unicorn because of its original production volume or crazy option configuration, it is a unicorn because it survived the ravages of time with nary or door ding or hint of bumper rash.  The salvage title is the only thing holding this car back from being a $10k trailer queen.  Find this 1998 Volkswagen Jetta Turbo Diesel Manual offered for $4200 in Los Angeles, CA via craigslist.
