Yesterday I followed a Rabbit. Not a new one. An '84. I know it was an
'84 because that was the big decal in the rear window (along with a
smaller "Winter Beater" decal).

It was gorgeous. 4-door. Silver on top with maroon lower starting just
above the top of the wheel wells. Wide but not too wide wheels. Tuned.
I'd put money on that one not having any extra bells and whistles. Well,
except maybe engine and suspension improvements, a good sound system.
Seeing it made me want to go out and find one. Keep It Simple Stew(pid).
