Well the old girl was collected  :cool:

the journey home was " interesting "  :laugh:

The suspension is " floaty "  :grin:

the brakes are  :shocked: basic  :shocked:

The performance is better than the Mk2 golf auto i had.  :smug: even touched 80 downhill with a following wind  :grin:

So got her home,





Then turned it whiter than it was before  :lipsrsealed:





Then noticed some very original things on the car , including original dealer plates  and the following.








Tried  :cry: making a start on the faded / whiteish paint  but my shoulders arent up to it ( Guy - PM coming your way  :wink: )

Then i got the service book out and

 :shocked: :shocked: :shocked: :shocked: :shocked: :shocked: :shocked: :shocked: :cool:

Full service book stamped til 2007, AND reciepts from the same garage from 2004 til 2008 for at LEAST £300 a year for service and MOTs. and its only done 5000 miles since last January :afro:




So I am one happy chappy, and will be even happier once i have had the paint sorted  :cool: :afro:
