why did i look in the a1 classifieds...
most leave before i buy another car... gorgeous car paully!
Paul are you having another mid life crisis....jeeeeeeeeeeze what i would do to own one of these never mind have had them all plus that wheel and parts collection...
As someone who bought a lot of cars over the years (20 years, 150++ MK1&MK2's) to drive and play with, I recently was in a hurry and grabbed a MK1 that was way out of my normal price range (the kind where you lie and say you paid less, so you're not judged by your friends and family...) because the previous owner did the zillion little things to it that people do when they have the cash and they think they're keeping it forever, which are things they can never really get anywhere near their time and money out of again when they go to sell the car... and I know, having done them myself over and over.
I wish there was a way I could share just how "worth it" it turned out to be, both in time, effort, money, repairs, storage, etc etc etc... plus the true fun of driving something awesome from day one. From now on, this is the type of deal I'd look for FIRST the next time I need to buy a car. I just had to say something, when I saw the price and remembering what I used to think about this level of car and price and what I think now, and how much closer to a real value I now realize something like this really is.
Bump for a super nice car and a reasonable price.
I know you said the engine had a complete going through and by looking at the rest of the car I have no doubts everything is there and straight, I just wanted to see how clean the engine area was since the going thru was complete thats all. BTW she is an absolute BEAUTY! Thanks!
