1983 vw rabbit gti project.

ok so i started work on my 1983 vw rabbit GTI.
i bought this car for $400 and all i needed to do to get it started was bye a gas tank. this car was sitting in a garage for 12 years and i started it up for the first time 2 days ago and it turned over with out a problem! theres a video at the end of the car starting for the first time in 13 YEARS.

thats where the gas tank used to be. its llike new!
