My sister has a 91 4-cyl, she paid $300 for two years ago. I've done a timing belt, the dizzy, and a wheel bearing. Othe r than that, tires and brakes are all its' required.
My wife has an 05 4-cyl. Roger, you are right. It's not really better. In fact, other than the 5-speed auto vs the 4-speed auto in the older one, I really like the 91 a ton better. Although, a 5-speed man would make it just about perfect, IMHO. However, I won't own one either. Interestingly, Cristine (my sis) used to own a 1987 4000 Quattro.
Oh, and I was hoping to see the Rabbit/Jetta/Scirocco on your list. I agree 100%. It was the start of something different for VW, and car manufacturers in general. The Audi Fox was actually a bit more technically advanced, and a bit stronger built. However, the Rabbit design (transverse engine/hatchback body) cought on better, and the rest is history.
