I had a 98 NB many years ago and it just wasn't big enough for us at the time. Now, the kids are gone and I came across a Vortex Blue 5 speed from down south. It has a lot of miles but it's not rusty and in really good mostly original condition so I bought it. Supposed to be 1 of 2000 made and that blue is the same base color as my Vanagon and my favorite Volvo 240's so I bit the bullet .

It's a 1.8T which is not my favorite VW engine, but there is always a TDI swap if necessary.

Suspension is shot up front so looking to replace that with a mild coil based lowering kit.

Never liked the lack of gauges on the NB and it appears that the Bernt kits are NLA so I got an Autometer 3 gauge pod for the top of the dash.

It's going to be a toy so hopefully I can take time to do it right.

Welcome! I agree Vortex blue was one of my favs back "in the day". I hope you're able to save it!
