154,000+ miles: 1989 VW Cabriolet. Jeanen & Vaughn L. Irondequoit, NY.

This is my wife’s daily driver, it is a 1989 black on black Cabriolet with an Automatic 3 spd, and 154,000 miles. My wife has named the car “Rhodie.” We are from NY. My wife and I vacation in Rhode Island just down the road from where the original owner lives, and where I proposed to my wife. I proposed aboard the 72 ft Schooner Adirondack. Needless to say, Rhode Island holds a special place in our hearts. Last fall we started noticing engine oil, transmission fluid, and most recently antifreeze in the driveway. A major engine and transmission rebuild was called for (which I am about halfway through). I hope to have her back on the road again for the 4th of July parade in our hometown! Thanks again for all of your support Parts Place.
