The Man Behind the Wrench
Jim Pawlicki got introduced to a Rabbit GTI in high school right around the time the Corrado G60 hit the market. After a tour with a 1975 Super Beetle he got behind the wheel of his own Rabbit GTI. He has since owned five of them, keeping his 1983 Rabbit GTI Callaway Turbo. He appreciates the tasteful aftermarket modifications of the 80's and 90's from vendors like Autotech, Techtonics Tuning, Nuespeed, Kamei, Drake, ATS, BBS, and Callaway. Over the last decade, Jim has turned his attention to saving neglected Volkswagens and bringing them back to life to live another day.
