    Didn't realise you'd had the mk1 THAT long.

    I went to GTI festival at Avon park in 1995 in my first Golf , wish I'd still got that.

    Oh yes 15 Long Years Nearly ( Had to sign it over to Mick Clements for six months due to Divorce reasons ) so it should have 6 previous owners but has 8 due to that.

    Yeah GTI Fest 1995 went down with a few of the Lads i think Phatty was with us and a few more from York, Gav Walsh's White MK1 next to mine from York (now lives is OZ).

    MiMs look good on small bumper mk2s and mk1s but don't suit big bumper cars as much imo.

    Yep it was Mick's old 1.8L 16v pushed 154bhp 129 lb/lb as standard with K&N Filter and 4-1 Manifold.

    Changed to ABF Bottom end and Gas Flowed Head in 1998 though much better engine.

    can't remeber if they were MIM 2800 or 1800 which were the one's which had the deeper dish with the spokes that curved inwards ? were they the 2800 ? the laquered finish on the MIM's used to peel off after 12 months tho.

    Pics'll be great. IIRC the grass was long in '96 too - they mustn't have been cutting it.

    Bloody hell!! You've owned it longer than i've been driving, have you ever done any body resto on it or has it never needed it?

    In the mag years ago did they write 'Its like being pulled along the road in an old tin bath' or am I thinking of another mk1?

    ^Superb!
    Recently repainted a set of forged lightweight (6.27kg each) 16x7" rims for the Merc, and they're really rather similar to ATS Cups in that the construction actually mimics a dished Steel wheel but is in fact alloy...



    They're my 'winters', and were originally a nasty corroded polished/diamond-cut finish all over.
    Nitro-Mors took care o' that though.

    i had a full re-spray in 1997 with two Brand new doors & Wings Originals too from VW and a new front Panel. after Hajid Chana's White MK2 G60 (PVW Aug 97) hit me on Leeds Ring Road his car was a complete right off and the week after it was featured in PVW!!

    and a new Bonnet in 2006 after the old one flew up while i was at Elvington doing 101mph better an Impreza on my way to a 13 sec 1/3 mile.

    Yes i think they wrong somthing like it rattles you teeth out !! That was when i had the AVO Coilovers fitted with 350lb front springs and 300 lb rear springs.

    2.0L 16V ABF Bottom End
    KR 027 16V Gasflowed & Ported Head
    ABF Cams fitted.
    50mm Inlet Manifold
    should be good for 175BHP.
