Welcome back to Week in Review. We apologize for not getting this out sooner, but with GCFSB staff on the move with summer travels and your managing editor dealing with a move, we were a bit tied up. But let’s take this chance to recap the last month of vehicles we have featured:

The 1991 Volkswagen Jetta GLI 16V we featured last month is back up for sale at no reserve. The stanced look might not be for everyone, but the car is sorted and ready to be enjoyed by its next owner.

One of my favorite periods in Porsche history was between the late 1980s and early 1990s. It was during this period that the 959 supercar appeared, bringing forth the concept of all-wheel drive which is still with us in many Porsche models to this day. The 911 3.2 was making way for the new 964 series 911, itself a prized commodity amongst collectors currently. The 944, meanwhile, was at the end of its run but before the baton was handed off to the 968, the 944S2 would appear as an update. With a large 3.0 liter inline-4 with twin cams and 16 valves complimenting its exceptionally balanced chassis, these were great cars on and off the track. This S2 for sale in Missouri is practically new out of the wrapper with under 7,000 miles on the clock. Missed a shot at a new 944 years ago? Here’s your chance…

This low-mileage MK2 Golf is looking pretty slick on a lowered Nuespeed suspension with some killer ACT wheels. Unfortunately, the Wolfsburg Edition hatchback has got two strikes against it: the car is saddled by an automatic and it lost one of its likely irreplaceable wheels in a shunt with a guardrail. These two points make me cringe, as this car looks like a perfectly entertaining commuter with very appropriate mods for the year. Unfortunately, it’s still a transmission swap and wheel replacement away from being an ideal solution for me. But, the super low mileage may make it a worthy investment to source a low-mileage 5-speed manual swap candidate, and given the aftermarket for MK2s, there’s definitely another set of wheels out there that will do the job. And no matter what you say, clean Golfs like this one do not pop up every day.

The last time I went to North Carolina, I came home with an E46 ZHP sedan. It was a bit of a gamble and I spent a touch more than I should have. But it made for an enjoyable journey home, and one that I’d happily make again for a car like this. In the process, I’d get a vehicle far more entertaining and prestigious, what with the allure of a hand-built Motorsports engine. Not to mention kick-ass turbine wheels and awesome rear bucket seats. I might try to work the price down a bit to compensate for the mileage, but overall, this is more than tempting.
