1984 Volkswagen Rabbit??
Hey guys, there's a small (2-3 cars) car dealer near my office in Syracuse, NY. They have a 1984 Volkswagen Rabbit Convertible, with 110,000 miles on it. They re-painted it, so I'm assuming there was rust. They want 1500 or b/o. I thought it may be a good beater to drive to and from work (3 miles each way).
I know virtually nothing about cars. Part of me is thinking this may be a good way to learn, trial by fire! Anyways, does anyone have any experience, or knowledge about these cars, or any advice. I know you get what you pay for. I don't have much more disposable income than that...
