Talking My "new" 97 Passat sedan

Hey folks! Bought a 97 Windsor Blue Passat sedan to replace Ol'blue (98 Jetta) that was totalled by a deer.It has 314k now(was almost 313k when I bought it). Flew out to Boston to pick it up, 44 mpg on drive home. The only major spot of rust was in lower corner of windshield drivers side,and a few scratches here and there. It does need some tinkering still(oil leak,blue smoke,rough idle when cold) and little bits and pieces interior wise,but all the people that have seen car so far can't believe it has that many miles.Car handles extremely well.

Just spent last 1/2hr trying to get photos to post-trying to follow instructions another member gave me a few years ago to no avail. I can't seem to get to spot where it says copy to clipboard,unless that no longer exists. At least I got them into an album in members pictures section in the gallery-97 Windsor Blue Passat sedan if anyone wants to see-also a couple pictures of the oil that came out of my lower IC hose......

Forget to tell you that, if you copy from the album and paste it to another window, the picture you get is the same size as the one in the album. To get a larger picture, you need to display it first then copy and paste.

Well,it was 1 yr. ago today that I flew to Boston to pick up the B4-now 341k miles(29k this year). Still has a few quirks,avg. around 44mpg on Fuelly. Up for inspection in December,hope the torn rack boots will pass. I'll have to figure out how to get the cars' problems solved,that are in my capability range-blend doors,window tracking,slightly hard cold starts. Really hate to eff w/ glow plugs,as the 1st owner buggered one of the holes and heli-coiled it,which also was letting fuel escape slightly-the fuel seems to have halted for now. The rust spot on windshield pillar that I "fixed" last year seems to be holding up ok. The major expense the past year was my drive to Growler for the TB job,which on my way there I picked up some leather seats. I'll have to check Fuelly for exact cost of fuel and mileage for the year. Seems hard to believe I'm 1/4 way through my TB interval already.....

Well, I hit some sort of dog/coyote/wolf Thurs morning(8/29),so the front passenger corner of car is effed up-still drivable,just not at night. I'm going to an Allstate drive-in claim center Sunday,so I'll see what verdict is then-just over 361k miles now.Need to take some pics this time and try to post them.

3 years and 2 timing belt jobs under its belt,the ol' B4 keeps plugging along. It has around 393,400 on it now,starts pretty good as long as the glow plugs stay on long enough. I've almost hit at least 5 deer the past few weeks,last was a stupid buck just standing in the road,about 500' from arriving at work......

Got a better look and snapped some pics,will try to post later.Not good. Passenger door is shut,but there is a gap between metal door frame and the interior. The intercooler is at a 45 degree angle. The passenger hood hinge is twisted sideways and rear hood corner is almost touching windshield(it did hit windshield). I can't even budge hood to open it,I probably will ask adjuster if I can try to open it or wait till he sees it.
