Got it started today!!!!
I'm tipping towards DDing the Passat and moving the Golf along. I think the Passat is more practical at this stage, and realistically the Golf needs quite a bit of time invested.
What a relief. All it needed was a good battery. I've tried boosting it, jumper packs, using the battery I took out of the Mercedes, which got it clicking. I took the Optima out of the '32, hooked it up and it fired right up. Ran a can of Seafoam through the intake.

I need new tires for it now.

Ahhhh, so happy!

Since it'll be my DD, I think I'll start looking for some flow masters :).

Hoping not to part it out... a PO expressed some interest (not you).

Had the oil changed today... some Lucas stuff, 6l of oil, and the rest in ATF. One of the front CV boots had ripped open and puked grease all over the wheel and wheel well, so I had that replaced as well. Still have to get an E test... hopefully that'll go ok. Sucks that all three of our vehicles are even number model years!
