you have complete glass, doors, hatch, and a bumch of parts for $500 that could keep the prepped shell going. The $500 car is very much a 'kit' while the caged car is still a project. Anyone buying a built car will want to essentially strip it down and put it back together anyway, so your crew will still have lots to do.
I would wholeheartedly agree with Morison.
The money you spend on the cage, rally safety equipment, etc... will likely run you more than the $6500 that the other Golf is advertised for.
