Nice looking car... my condolences. There aren't many of those around
For what it's worth, if your neighbors think the Jetta was noisy, ask
them how they would feel if you replaced it with a Dodge Cummins!
I have a neighbor at the end of my block that has one, and he rattles
windows when he comes and goes. Your neighbors should be thankful.
I hope they catch those bastards.
