    its between one with this body style


    or this, just want some opinions...


    the pictures are kinda misleading because im not gonna buy cars that look that nice, just those body styles, im goin to sell the el camino and the rx7 and get one of those three kinds of cars, so i just thought i would ask for some feedback...

    i got the amps covered though...

    here is the problem neither car are reliable, and have so very much been tormented over the thought of sellin the el camino (its basically like my child at this point) but i need something that is reliable, and i can get another el camino later, this one was just a lemon,,,

    and the rx7 was a 50 dollar car, and thats just profit no matter what i sell it at..

    so... you are trading unreliable cars in for a vw?...


    i would go for the first body. i normally like vw hatchback body styles but those ones just dont do it for me.. i think it's because of the headlights.. im not sure though.

    do me a favor and get a mk3.

    a mk2, a rocco and especially the corrado are the most unreliable vws out there..
    next to your rx7.

    but the car that will give you the least head ache out of your choices is the jetta.
    please swap out the 16v or 8v digifart or cis....and swap in something from the obdII generations...

    vr6 please.

    g60 is also the biggest piece of crap out there.
    rados are only good if you get lucky and have a wel kept car.
    and they go for a high price, since they are rare and a cult car.

    what are you talkin about, my dad had a jetta for 13 years before it was wrecked, same engine, same tranny, like 180000 miles, totally reliable...and vw's are easy balls to fix...

    my honest opinion is that you should spend whatever money you have on your rx-7 and keep it.

    but i voted for the jetta (i hope this wasnt supposed to be an anonomous(sp??) voting system.. if it is, Im black and from Florida, with a criminal record so my vote doesnt count)

    well, if I had to choose.....I would go with the Corrado.....Jettas' are a dime a dozen and Sciraccos' are nothing but fucking headaches--it doesn't what you do to a Volkswagon to soup up the motor----once the wiring starts to freak out-you're fucked.

    Now, as far as getting rid of that El Camino---I would say "NO".--that particular body style had a version called the "Conquista" which was really just a different color scheme with some of the side body molding altered.---it would worth looking into....also....your Elco probably has a V6 or the small 305 V8 in it....and getting parts or re-building it would cost peanuts compared to buying and up-grading a newer V-dub......that's my input for you.

    here is the problem, the el camino has

    new engine
    new carb
    new starter
    new alternator
    new water pump
    new fuel pump
    new battery
    yet it breaks down motor wise and dosent run smooth, so its way more heachache than it is worth....and i know plenty about my its body style and all, im an el camino fanatic, but im just tired of this one in particular..
