  2. No promises but I’ve brought this to the attention of my son.

    He’s looking for his first car.

  5. They are very practical and insurance should be reasonable, I would have thought.

  8. No longer 4sale at the moment due to the heap of junk T2 probably dropping a valve or something!

  9. New silly price .....


    Jacked it up and had a look at steering, all wishbones etc ok but found it clunking From steering rack, looks like the little old lady drove it with worn top mounts and rattled the steering rack around!
    Problem is there hard to get in RHD so maybee a modified mk 1 golf one may fit or find someone to overhaul it which I really don’t have time for now as I need to rebuild my type 4 engine before I move!
  10. Or swap for a good 2.0 type 4 engine!
