1984 Volkswagen Jetta 8V

 What new models came out from the Big 3 in 1984? The Ford Tempo. The C4 Corvette.  The Pontiac Fiero.  The Dodge Caravan.  Not too much excitement there. That's why we feel no shame featuring an already long-in-the-tooth 1st gen Jetta to represent 1984. Find this 1984 Volkswagen Jetta here for sale in Lincoln, NE for $4,000 via craigslist.  This post is part of DT's 2016 Birthday Celebration of 100 cars; enjoy the ride!

What's that below?  IT'S THE MARK OF THE BEAST PLATE AGAIN!!! Okay, now things are starting to get creepy. I think the Prince of the Hoary Netherworld might be trying to send a message that I look at too many damned car ads. Or it could be that there is a guy trying to flip every 1980s vintage VW in the area that he can get his hands on.

The ask for this car is as steep as a grave wall, but maybe the seller will respond to the right sized Chicago bank roll.  In any case you have to admit that, if in decent condition, the interior of a VW from this era is a thing to behold.  This one appears to fit the bill.

There is no doubt that this Jetta has a kitsch about it that will bring all the hipsters to the yard.  Here's hoping this Maytag white sedan falls into the right hands and gets brought back up to snuff.
