About

My second car, just out of college. My first attempts at tuning were done on this car. Seriously underpowered and slowly dying 1996 red 2-litre automatic VW GTI. I discoverded I liked the whole hot hatch formula - small, nimble, practical, fun. But I really didn't liked the slushbox - at the time of purchase, no one in the O'Toole clan knew how to drive stick, and in a pinch, Dad or sis needed to be able to use it. Eventually, a pair of replaced transmissions would spell the end of the relationship with the GTI. After the second transmission was installed, I sold the car to a private party and used the funds to procure my first MINI.
