Default B382000469LRXFE Is 50 09/21/15

My MKiA turns 50 today. Took it out for a nice cruise yesterday. I've only had it a few years. I painted it last fall and put it together over the winter so it's only been back on the road since this spring. The last inspection sticker on it was from 1988.

John,

Black dash cars are only in the first 400 b947 cars... Very early mki cars, by mkia they are the full gt spec interior

You are quite right Michael. I miss read the VIN as b947** & **369. The eyesight is going way too fast.
