my dad bought me a *mint* 1987 golf GTI w/ 27,000 miles from an old lady who garaged it for her (then sadly departed) son. she just didn’t want to let it go, and my dad took it off her hands for $3,000 (!!!). i got it my junior year of HS, 2006 and drove the motherfuckin shit out of it. one day my mom took it to the grocery store and realized it didn’t have an airbag, so she went ahead and sold it to the UPS guy one day w/out asking us. it’s still a point of contention in the family.
